Your healthcare provider may perform imaging tests to view your jaw, teeth and facial structures. These tests provide detailed pictures of your jaw and can reveal whether your mandibular condyles are breaking down. Tests that can be useful in diagnosing this condition include:

  • X-ray.
  • CT scan.
  • MRI.

Management may include consultations from several healthcare providers, including orthodontists, rheumatologists or primary care providers (PCPs.) You may be started on long-term medications to slow down the resorption process prior to any surgical intervention if indicated.
