What is TMJ Disorder?
That clicking, popping and discomforting pain of your jaw has a name, and it is called TMJ disorder or Temporomandibular joint dysfunction. Though TMJ refers specifically to the area affected — the Temporomandibular joint — this acronym is often used interchangeably with TMD.
Most people aren’t familiar with the acronym or the condition, for it is still being studied and grasped, but there’s a good reason for the unfamiliarity. In fact, many physicians and dentists find themselves in the same boat as you, just not L.A.’s TMJ disorder expert, Dr. Eddie Siman. For over 30 years, Dr. Siman has devoted his professional career to the study and treatment of TMJ, making him uniquely qualified to help you understand all there is to know about the condition. In the course of his 30 plus year career, Dr. Siman has transformed the lives of thousands of patients by eliminating their painful symptoms for good after others had failed.
