Dr. Eddie Siman, the TMJ & Sleep Apnea Expert
You may have been told the pain you are experiencing in your jaw is all in your head or that the pain is temporary and ‘nothing to worry about.’ Unfortunately, the exact cause of TMJ differs for each patient. Although most professionals believe that causes of TMD are unknown, in most instances, TMJ is caused by a misaligned jaw that is inherited genetically or is caused by improper orthodontics as a child. These problems may lead to grinding and clenching of the teeth that in turn would result in muscle tension causing headaches, migraines, neck and shoulder pain, ringing in the ears, and limitations to the position of the tongue that causes snoring and sleep apnea. Learn more about your TMJ disorder and discover solutions for your pain relief with Dr. Eddie Siman, the TMJ & Sleep Apnea Expert in Sherman Oaks, California. Dr. Siman has over 30 years of experience dedicated to treating Temporomandibular joint disorder/dysfunction (TMJ) and continues to discover advancing research in the field.
Innovative Holistic Techniques For TMJ Pain Relief
The joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull is your temporomandibular joint (TMJ). It enables your jaw to open and close so you can eat, drink, and eat. Issues affecting your TMJ can cause soreness at the joint, facial pain, and trouble moving the joint. These issues are known as TMJ disorders (TMJD). It is estimated that more than 70% of the population of the world suffer from TMJ Disorder. TMJ disorders are more common in women than men. While there are effective treatments available, the diagnosis is often difficult to pinpoint by most dental and medical professionals because of the limited amount of training in this field.
To learn if you have TMJD, you need a proper TMJ Disorder Diagnosis. This can be done by a qualified TMJ expert that is trained in the use of the most modern diagnostic equipment in the field. There is no one “official” test to determine if people have TMJD because the cause and symptoms vary from patient to patient.
Your bite has a significant impact on affecting the temporomandibular joint. Poor dental hygiene and bad habits, such as grinding teeth and chewing habits, can impact the way your mouth aligns—impacting your bite. For example, excessive teeth grinding can cause wear and damage to your teeth, causing your upper and lower jaw not to align, causing an imbalanced bite. In addition, as your temporomandibular joint is constantly strained and stressed, your surrounding muscles can trigger your TMJ symptoms. Dr. Siman designed our facility in Sherman Oaks to equip his facility and his patients with the most innovative technology so that the doctor can personalize treatments for each patient. Dr. Siman uses the in-house CT Scanner, Electromyography, Joint Sonography, Digital Scanners, and other high-tech equipment to get to the source of your pain.
After discovering the cause of your TMJ disorder, Dr. Siman tailors a treatment plan specific to you. Many patients often respond to Dr. Siman’s holistic treatments. Once a proper diagnosis has been made, Dr. Siman will begin the healing process.
As an adjunct to Dr. Siman’s holistic TMJ treatments, acupuncture can offer relief from TMJ jaw pain and inflammation, including popping or clicking of the jaw joints, headaches, migraines, and neck and shoulder pain.
Discover and learn what you are experiencing and how your reactions may be affecting your pain. The purpose of CBT is to help you recognize how you think and feel during specific life triggers and choose a different approach.
Stress can trigger your body to tense various muscles. Stress management techniques can help you identify what is causing you stress and strategies to minimize your stress.
Most dental professionals offer TMJ patients a bite guard, a night guard, or a splint. Many patients purchase over-the-counter splints or night guards. However, many of these devices do not correct the jaw position and are ineffective. Dr. Eddie Siman custom-designs his own TMJ devices based on current FDA-approved, safe and biocompatible dental materials and appliances. Each device is custom fitted and adjusted to each individual patient to reduce or eliminate TMJ-related pain.
Botox has been a treatment for decades to treat conditions such as urinary incontinence, excessive sweating, and eye twitching. In cosmetic procedures, Botox helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, Botox can help relax the muscles around the temporomandibular joint for patients suffering from TMJ. However, these treatments are temporary and need to be repeated every few months.
Dr. Siman is L.A.’s most trusted TMJ expert because he helps patients find permanent relief through holistic care and expert treatment. Over three decades ago, Dr. Siman noticed his cosmetic dentistry patients were returning with damage to their cosmetic dental work and dental implants because of teeth grinding and improper care because of the pain they were experiencine.
Patients complained of ringing in their ears, neck and shoulder pain. Dr. Siman understood there is a jaw-body connection, and the issue is not the cosmetic work itself but because of an unbalanced bite. However, the TMJ solutions that were available decades ago were not adequate. So Dr. Siman dedicated his career and educated himself in the most advanced and up-to-date treatments available in the world.
He incorporated various high-tech and computerized equipment in his armanitarium and modified and designed custom devices based on current FDA-approved biocompatible materials. Since that date, Dr. Siman has successfully treated and changed the lives of thousands of patients from the United States and around the world. Today, numerous testimonials commend Dr. Siman’s out-of-the-box approach to TMJ diagnosis and non-surgical treatment.
