An oral surgeon will be able to discuss all of the options for you. However, most plastic surgeons will be able to effectively treat the masseter and temporalis muscles to help improve your symptoms of TMJ. You can ask prior to scheduling an appointment and the office should tell you whether this is a treatment that they commonly perform.
