What are the symptoms of TMJ how to get the treatment from an expert, visit us today to have a more information

Sometimes a person doesn’t realize that headaches, muscle tension, fatigue, and neck pain can all be signs of a TMJ disorder. The cause can vary and only a professional can make a positive diagnosis. Many suffer, but not all seek relief that comes with correction of the condition. People living or working in the San Diego area have access to a dental expert in TMJ treatment who is experienced in these problems, Dr. Al A. Fallah, in Carlsbad. With careful evaluation and effective treatment, our goal is to restore balance for our patients and help to restore their quality of life.

WHAT IS THE TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT (TMJ)?

The temporomandibular joints or TMJs for short connect the mandible, or lower jaw, to the temporal bone. These joints, located on both sides of a person’s face are flexible, with the ability to move side to side, forward and backward, as well as up and down. They provide the motions necessary to be able to do such things as talk, bite, chew, and yawn. There are muscles that aid in the motion and position of the joint. This is a very complex joint in the body, and proper function is essential to patient comfort, but also can be very complicated to diagnose and treat.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF TMJ DISORDERS?

Pain and complications from TMJ disorders may present due to various factors. A disc can become worn or move out of proper position. Arthritis can damage cartilage in the joint. Problems may also stem from an injury. Sometimes there is no positive identification of the exact cause.

WHAT ARE MY TREATMENT OPTIONS?

Dr. Fallah utilizes computer-assisted equipment to obtain an accurate overview of a patient’s jaws. Based upon the data collected, he is able to plan treatment that will relieve discomfort. This may involve perhaps an appliance to be worn in the mouth to help maintain proper alignment of the jaw and muscles, adjustment of teeth by reshaping or adding crowns or veneers to alter bite alignment, neuromuscular orthodontics, or use of dentures or implants to replace missing teeth and maintain proper alignment and balance.

We invite you to call and schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Fallah. We welcome the opportunity to assist you with any dental concerns that you may have, or to be able to have you visit us on a regular basis by choosing us your dental home. Together, we will achieve good oral health that only contributes to a better life overall.
