I am 47 years old and unfortunatly I have had dentures since I was 24. I am experiencing what I believe to be TMJ. Ringing in my ears, head and neck pain, headaches. Sometimes it becomes so unbearable.
My gums have worn down and I need new dentures. Is there a surgery to replace the
cartlidge in my gums, surgery to relieve the pressure and ringing in my ears, and get new dentures to fit properly? ... Visitor from MI
Yes, there are options. What is needed is a Panorex x-ray to see how much bone you have left. Once you are able to stabilize your jaws, you can begin to treat your joints. You will probably need to work closely with an oral surgeon on this. It's not hard to treat if you can locate a dentist who has the experience with these types of conditions.
