Q.

TMJ

Hi there,

I am having jaw aches ever since having a bridge fitted and although i know i need to get my bite adjusted i think i need to see someone who specialises with TMJ as i have a lot of other issues related to this. I am in the Gauteng region,any suggestions?

Sorry- I don't know anyone who specialises in TMJ disorders only- all maxillofacial specailists do dedicate some part of their practices to TMJ conditions

Good Day

I would like to know if there is any truth in the fact that the mercury or lead in filling your teeth is a danger to you. Some say it is better to use the white filling although it lasts not so long. Could this mercury cause long term damage ?

Regards
J
