Temporomandibular Joint – Dentist Los Angeles

Cosmetic Dentist Los Angeles

TMJ

People who grind their teeth can sometimes develop a serious problem with their jaw. One of the most common jaw disorders is related to a problem with the temporomandibular joint, the joint that connects your lower jaw to our skull.

People with temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) often have a clicking or popping sound when opening and closing their mouths. Such disorders are often accompanied by frequent headaches, neck aches, and in some cases tooth sensitivity.

Some treatments for TMD include muscle relaxants, aspirin, biofeedback, or wearing a small plastic appliance in the mouth during sleep.

  • "They were so good and gentle that I decided to bring my 10-year-old son. I can say without hesitation that this was his best trip to the dentist. The whole family will only go to New Image Dental. "

  • "Today I was presented with a laser technique that would possibly save my teeth without having them pulled, so I agreed. Dr. Adams was extremely attentive, and made sure that the procedure was pain free which it was."
