Best TMJ Treatment in Carlsbad, CA area best dentist Dr. Fallah had one patient who hadn't been pain free for over three years, and when she left the office, she was pain free!
The temporomandibular Joints – where the lower jaw attaches to the skull – are a complex system of bone, muscle, ligaments, and tissue. When they are healthy, they allow us to perform many important, every-day functions, including chewing, breathing, talking - even kissing. When they are not functioning properly, however, the results are the intense joint pain, headache, neck pain, jaw pain and muscle spasms associated with TMJ. These symptoms can be the result from a number of factors, including:
  • Tearing, dislocation or other trauma to the joint
  • Arthritis
  • Tumors
Whatever the cause of your TMJ symptoms, Dr. Fallah understands the significant impact it can have on your life and is committed to designing the course of treatment that will work best for you.

Treating TMJ

Dr. Fallah's approach to treating TMJ involves careful planning and precise diagnostic procedures to make sure that your treatment is as effective as possible. Dr. Fallah will work with you every step of the way to keep you educated and informed, allowing you to take an active role in your treatment.
First, Dr. Fallah measures and maps your jaw using sophisticated computer diagnostic equipment. Based on the diagnostic results, he creates a provisional orthotic to adjust your bite to a healthier, physiologic position.

Instant Orthodontics' using Porcelain Veneers and Gum Contouring
For this patient, we created Porcelain Veneers, making her smile more symmetrical and closing the spaces between her teeth.
Once it has been determined that the bite correction that Dr. Fallah has designed will achieve your desired results, a number of techniques can be used to permanently correct your bite and alleviate your symptoms. These include:
  • An orthotic appliance that would provide comfort and harmony between the jaw and the head and neck neuromuscular system, or
  • Bite adjustment by doing some minor reshaping of the teeth to reduce the interference that cause the painful jaw displacement, or
  • Neuromuscular Orthodontics after achieving comfort within the jaw, head and neck areas, to maintain and improve the comfortable balanced bite achieved with the Orthotic appliance, or
  • Porcelain crowns or veneers after achieving comfort within the jaw, head and neck areas to maintain the comfortable balanced bite achieved with the Orthotic appliance, or
  • Dentures and/or partials and/or implants when missing multiple teeth with a comfortable and balance within the jaw and head and neck areas replace missing teeth
