Arthroscopy of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a minimally invasive surgical method of diagnosing and treating TMJ dysfunctions, in cases where nonsurgical treatment has failed to yield beneficial results. Findings obtained from diagnostic arthroscopy have yielded a new appreciation for the diagnosis of TMJ pathology, while arthroscopic operative procedures have been developed that replace open surgery for many pathological conditions. The goal of such arthroscopic surgical intervention is to restore functional range of motion, without pain or limitation, and an improved sense of well-being over time. As in all other joint surgeries, TMJ arthroscopy requires a high degree of technical skill and expert patient management for optimum success which we provide at our hospital.
Our clinic provides both non-surgical and surgical treatment modalities of the TMJ. The OnPoint™ 1.2 mm Scope System is an innovative breakthrough that provides minimally invasive visualization of the TMJ in the comfort and convenience of an office-based setting.
This scope is basically a new device that utilises rigid fibre-optic technology to visualize the superior and inferior spaces of the TMJ in a clinic and operating theatre settings under local anaesthesia and intravenous sedation or general anaesthesia. Since it comes in a 1.2mm (18 gauge needle) Scope System it is designed to provide minimally invasive diagnostic and operative procedures.
