Remarkably, over 70% of the global population is estimated to grapple with TMJ disorders. Despite the availability of effective treatments, diagnosing TMJ can be challenging for many dental and medical practitioners due to the limited extent of training in this specialized field. Seeing a TMJ specialist is the best way to see real results and get relief.
The Authority on TMJ in Beverly Hills
While there are many practitioners who see patients for TMJ, there are very few who specialize in it and can offer multiple forms of treatment with one cohesive and holistic guidance plan. Dr. Eddie Siman is one of those few and is passionate about helping each one of his patients find relief from the troublesome symptoms of TMJ.
TMJ Causes Problems For More Than Just The Jaw
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the hinge connecting your lower jaw to your skull. This crucial connection facilitates chewing, drinking, and speaking. If complications arise in this joint, it can result in discomfort, facial pain, and restricted mobility, collectively referred to as temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJD). In addition, jaw clicking, headaches, ear pain, neck and shoulder discomfort, and sleep problems can occur when TMJ is present or left untreated.
Determining whether you're dealing with TMJ requires a thorough diagnosis specifically tailored to this disorder. This is best performed by a proficient TMJ specialist using the latest diagnostic tools. Since the root causes and symptoms differ among individuals, there isn't a singular, standard examination for confirming TMJ disorders, so an individualized approach is essential.
Imagine No More Jaw Pain
The symptoms of TMJ can greatly affect overall quality of life, including eating, sleeping, and other activities. Addressing TMJ and calming symptoms comes with benefits, including:
Are You Ready To Feel Better?
Most of our Beverly Hills TMJ treatment patients have consistent pain in the jaw, issues with speaking or eating, and have headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain, or earaches. Typical candidates have had TMJ symptoms for more than a week, and symptoms are worsening rather than improving.
With such a complex, multifaceted issue, it's important to see a doctor who knows how to treat this condition utilizing many different resources and techniques, such as Dr. Siman and his team, who specialize in treating TMJ in Beverly Hills at their modern and comfortable office facility.
This technique is one of the tools used by Dr. Siman as part of his holistic approach to TMJ. Acupuncture can help relieve symptoms, including pain, clicking, and popping in the jaw, headaches, and neck pain.
Botox has been used for decades to treat a wide variety of issues, including TMJ. Botox works by relaxing the muscles around the temporomandibular joint to relieve symptoms. This treatment does require maintenance every few months as it is temporary.
Your experiences and how you react to them might be influencing your TMJ pain. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) aims to help identify your thought patterns and emotional responses during certain experiences, enabling you to choose alternative approaches.
Traditional solutions for TMJ include night guards, bite guards, or splints. However, these devices do not correct the jaw position and are ineffective. Dr. Eddie Siman designs and creates custom-made TMJ devices for patients using FDA-approved, biocompatible, and safe dental materials and products. Every device is personalized to the needs of the patient in order to minimize or eliminate pain caused by TMJ.
Stress can cause tension throughout the body. Pinpointing the sources of stress and learning stress management techniques can help reduce stress and the resulting tension.
Dr. Siman uses a customized combination of techniques to address the causes of TMJ and improve the symptoms. All of these methods are very low to no risk and do not require downtime. Results depend on the method used, and the effectiveness varies between each individual patient.
