Although there are many treatments for TMD, therapy specific to degenerative pathology of the TMJ disc itself is limited in scope and therapeutic effect. Consider Wharton’s jelly for Connective Tissue Supplementation to repair or replace the damaged tissue with new healthy connective tissue.
CryoText (Wharton’s jelly allograft) for TMJ Defects
Wharton’s jelly (WJ) allografts consist of human umbilical cord tissue that has been disassociated, suspended in saline, and cryopreserved. Their main function is to provide cushioning and structural support and to replace missing or damaged tissue in the patient, applied directly to the defect, or injured area, in soft tissues. They are applied via syringe and are typically used in ligament, muscle, or cartilage tears.
