Hi.. surgery alone will not help. You need to solve the cause of TMJ disorder and the cause in 90% of cases is wrong teeth alignment or malocclusion. Visit a Orthodontist for this problem. It can be solved Regards

Avoid doing things that might aggravate the temporomandibular joint or face muscles, such as chewing gum, clenching or grinding your teeth, or opening your mouth extra wide when you yawn. Applying ice packs or heat on the side of the face may offer some relief. You may need surgery to repair damaged tissue in the joint. But most people don't need surgery for a TMJ disorder.....
