Osteoporosis in my jaw joints
Good Day

I have osteoporosis in my jaw joints, no where else in my body. What is the medical procedure for this kind of condition, is it fixable and how can i "preserve" what is left of my jaw joints to prevent operations.

i have not had much medical attention given to my problem as I cannot afford all the testing and doc visits involved.
