Is it safe for a 19 year old to undergo a TMJ treatment?
Hi! I am writing this for my daughter. She is 19 years old. She had dental braces for almost 3 years. Her teeth were so crooked and had an overbite. She faced difficulty in cleaning her teeth properly. Her teeth were properly aligned after wearing the braces. She had her braces removed two days ago. But after the removal of braces, she was suffering from severe headache and pain. And she could hear popping sounds when she opens her mouth. I took her to a nearby GP. He diagnosed her with TMJ. He suggested seeking help from a TMJ oral surgeon. So I am planning to take her to a clinic in Lexington for the TMJ treatment ( http://concordlexington.com/procedures/temporomandibular-joint-tmj/ ). Is there any problem in undergoing a TMJ treatment at this age? How painful is this treatment? Please share your views and suggestions. Any advice is highly appreciated.
