I Suffer From TMJ Which Causes A Lot Of Pain. Can You Tell Me If Braces Can Fix This Problem?

Q.
Hello Dr Hughes,
I have a condition with my jaw called TMJ disorder (Temporomandibular Joint) this causes me a lot of pain and is very uncomfortable at times I had a MRI scan which showed a problem with my right side it was not explained well what was wrong with it just that when my mouth is closed my jaw doesn’t sit correctly. They explained that I could have jaw wash out surgery but this sounds very painful. Just wondering whether braces would help with this condition? Also I should mention that my front top and bottom teeth are slightly overlapped. Do you do a pay monthly scheme?
A.
Hello and thank you for getting in touch. If you have a severe joint derangement then orthodontics may not solve the problem for you. The overlapped teeth of course could be corrected by orthodontics. Yes we do have a monthly payment scheme or plan available to suit your requirements. I hope this clarifies your situation. Best wishes

Mark.
