Your treatment plan depends on your facial structure, age and medical history. Treatment options for condylar resorption may include:

  • Anti-inflammatory medications, which can help slow the condition’s progress.
  • Bite splints or night guards to protect your teeth from damage due to bruxism (grinding and clenching).
  • Condylectomy, which is surgery to remove your mandibular condyles. After removing them, your surgeon reshapes and repairs your jaw to restore proper function and improve appearance.
  • Orthodontics, including braces and retainers, which can correct overbite or teeth alignment problems.
  • Orthognathic surgery, which repositions your upper and lower jaws. This may be done in combination with TMJ reconstruction.
