Degenerative Joint Disease Jaw
Degenerative joint disease in right jaw. Spontaneous fracture 10 years ago. What can I do about the continuous swelling that I have had for two + years?
See max/facial OS: Spontaneous fractures are rare. The best plan is to consult with a maxillo-facial surgeon and discuss findings, especially after extensive study of cbct imaging. Good luck!
Stiff sore joints: Stiffness after sleeping or sitting still, then pain and swelling progress and can end up lasting day and night. A rheumatologist is an expert in DJD and can be helpful.
Upshot?: If you are asking what is good about djd, the answer is nothing. If you want to know about successful treatments, then we are talking anti-inflammatory medications, general analgesics, range-of-motion exercises as well as aerobic activities. Stretching and strengthening exercises are all useful. Injections can help a ton as well.See 1 more doctor answer

Start Conservately: Diet, medications, exercises, avoiding trauma are the first place to start, then get more agressive with shots and lastly surgery if they do not help.
DDD and aging: Degenerative joint disease is part of the process of aging, though it can be accelerated due to medication, structure damage causing additional wear on adjacent joint, or familial tendancy to this syndrome. It is the breakdown of the joint, often the spinal discs, causing nerve pain or simple bone pain. Medications (non-opioid) or surgery may be in your future.See 1 more doctor answer
