I am not familiar with the meridian assessment so I am not going to comment on it. But I can assure you that implants do not cause TMJ problems. In fact, dental implants have solved a lot of dental problems and made treatment planning much easier. Of course dental implants are not perfect, but often time it is not the implants themselves, but pt not having enough bone or bone quality not good. Until now, dental implants are usually the best treatment option for replacing missing teeth.
