Anyone had surgery to correct TMJ?
I've had is for years. My jaw has always sublexed when I open my mouth.
Recently, it started to hurt really bad and now I can't open my mouth very wide. I went into the er today and the doctor said he thinks it will dislocate. He stated sublexing is an indication that it will dislocate. But it's been doing it for probably 10+ years. He said it's not locked yet, but it could also do that. He told me to see an oral surgeon to get it corrected.
Not a big fan of surgery. So was just hoping to get some details.
