My diagnoses is non-reducible anterior dislocationof right disc with severe degenerative changes of right tmj. I was also told by my oral surgeon that I have severe narrowing of the right tmj joint and extensive sclerotic changes of the right temporal eminence and right mandibular condyle and neck. He mentioned also that cystic changes or the mandibular wht secondary osteoathritic changes of the joint. I have had these problems because of an injury when I was 9 years old. Over the years I have had two splints made and physical therapy. My doctor also performed athroscopic surgery. None of the nonevasive procedures worked. He wants me to take a second MRI. I need to find out some other procedures that may help me. I like to do my homework before talking with the doctor. Any information will be greatly appreciatied.
