Example of TMJ treatment IV (43-year-old female patient)

Before treatment

@

This Photograph shows a patient who could not open her mouth. In this case, there were two causes lower jaw shift and dropped occlusion. The central line of lower teeth was shifted to right-hand side, and the length of the upper front teeth was short. That is, the lower jaw was shifted to the left unequally causing extra stress on the left jaw joint. The cause of the lower jaw shift was upper teeth fillings. Because there were a lot of fillings with unsuitable height and shapes, the lower jaw was gradually shifted to the left and top.

After treatment

@

The second photograph shows the mouth after the treatment. All of the upper teeth filings were replaced with ceramic crowns. By correcting the occlusion, the lower jaw was shifted back to the right. Although the central lines were not completely straight on the photograph, the height of occlusion was improved, thereby alleviating the TMJ.
