How Is A TMJ Disorder Typically Diagnosed


Posted on 5/8/2023 by Dr. Nick Raptou
How Is A TMJ Disorder Typically DiagnosedThe temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is one of the most complicated joints in the body since it can perform the functions of both a ball-and-socket joint and a sliding joint simultaneously. The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is the joint that controls speech, eating, and swallowing. Chronic pain and other disorders that further damage the TMJ can result from the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) being diseased or injured. These conditions can make life increasingly challenging for the person in question.

Methods Of Diagnosing TMJ Disorder


Oral surgeons may utilize a variety of tools to diagnose TMJ disease. This equipment assesses the health and functionality of the mandible, joints, musculature, and dentition. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) systems, which use sophisticated three-dimensional X-rays and capture the entire head and neck, provide surgeons with a complete picture of a patient's TMJ disorder status. Surgeons have access to advanced technology instruments and standard X-rays to assist in the process of diagnosis. These instruments include conventional X-rays. CBCT systems.

In addition, electromyography enables the surgeon to monitor the muscle activity in the head and neck region, with a focus on stimulation, which can help determine the optimal TMJ treatment. In addition, joint vibration analysis employing sonography enables the surgeon to listen to the joints in order to gain a greater understanding of what is occurring within the joint and whether or not abnormalities are present. During an arthroscopy procedure, the surgeon will infuse a thin, small tube and a miniature camera into the joint space to obtain a comprehensive image of the region and its functions.
