Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery for TMJ Disorders
TMJ Clinics can provide patients access to an experienced and qualified surgeon specialising in oral and maxillofacial surgery for the treatment of temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ).
Accessible upon referral after your initial consultation, our TMJ surgeon can provide a tailored surgical plan and consultation specific to your condition. Working closely together as part of your support team, our surgeon will coordinate special investigations and treatment with other clinicians to deliver a targeted treatment plan that works towards achieving optimal health outcomes for each patient.
Our specialist TMJ oral and maxillofacial surgeon
TMJ Clinics work closely with Dr Samuel Kim, one of the most experienced maxillofacial surgeons treating temporomandibular joint disorders in Australia. While most individuals presenting with TMJ disorders won’t need surgery, the presence of Dr Kim means that patients with degenerative joint diseases beyond conservative intervention are able to access alternative treatment.
Dr Samuel Kim is the only dually qualified (medical and dental degree) maxillofacial surgeon in Sydney whose main practice is focused on TMJ surgeries. With a specialty in minimally-invasive TMJ surgery – including joint replacements – Dr Kim is a valued member of the TMJ Clinics team. Only a few fellowship trained specialists exist in Australia, and TMJ Clinics is pleased to be able to offer this service to our Canberra and Sydney communities.
If our highly trained non-surgical TMJ Clinicians diagnose a patient as requiring surgical intervention, our clinic will liaise with Dr Kim’s rooms to ensure comprehensive initial examination assessment and all imaging is organised ahead of time, meaning no need to transfer files for you. If you have been to the TMJ Clinics then you will be charged only for a short consultation with Dr Kim versus a long consultation as most of the information is already available.
