In brief: See OFP specialist

Orofacial pain patients can be treated with conservative, non-surgical and reversible procedures.
Surgical treatment of the disk may be done, with variable success and not recommended. See OFP specialist,they are the experts in this field.

Information. Without seeing you and discussing what else has been done it would be difficult to discuss what other options are available.
If your dentist has no further options and enough time has passed consider finding a tmd specialist through www.Aacfp.Org or www.Aaop.Org in your area.

In brief: Open surgery

If you've had excellent conservative treatment, had arthroscopy by a skilled surgeon, and appropriate control of ancillary factors (like clenching and grinding) open surgery may be a solution.
See a vastly experienced TMJ surgeon for advice.
