Patient needs a consultation to find out the etiology before a treatment can be discussed.
Treatment sometimes depends upon the length of time the jaw has been dislocated; acute dislocations can often be manipulated (typically under sedation) so that the condyle(s) are reseated. Chronic dislocations may require more invasive procedures.
