TMJ issues worsening just before double jaw surgery

#1 Post by tommm31 » Sun Aug 19, 2018 6:55 pm

Hey,

I am about four months pre double jaw surgery for my underbite. In past, I have experienced jaw clicking but I have the feeling it got worse since I got my braces on. Recently I am noticing joint pain aswell. It´s not too bad so far, but I am a bit alarmed. Is it something that could be fixed during my surgery? or will i need another surgery in future?

Thanks for your answers.
