TMJ Dysfunction

TMJ Dysfunction

Similar to adults, children can have dysfunction of their jaw joints. Such issues can arise from trauma, systemic disease or even infection. Unlike with adults however, many defects of the pediatric jaw joint are due to conditions the child is born with, such as a malformed or missing TMJ. Your pediatric craniofacial surgeon has a in-depth understanding of facial and dental development, which is key to appropriate diagnosis and treatment of TMJ conditions in children.
