How to diagnose TMJ disorder?

Normally if you are suffering from TMJ disorder you are likely to experience many symptoms and signs. This is why you need to visit our TMJ specialist Los Angeles to diagnose if you are really suffering from TMJ disorder. Our TMJ specialist will take you through some tests to ascertain that you are actually having this disorder.

Anytime you feel pain or discomfort in the jaws is the right time for you to visit us. This is because the earlier diagnosis and treatment of this disorder is achievable easily. Our specialist may want to take you through some jaw test in order to determine the particular source of pain.

 

What causes TMJ disorder?

TMJ disorder is likely to be caused by so many situations and circumstances. Our TMJ specialist Los Angeles have been able to gather some of the possible causes of this disorder from the past patients treated. Dr. Saadat believes that common causes of this disorder are physical injuries, physical diseases, and other conditions. If someone hits you hard at the jaw, it is likely to get dislocated.

The dislocation is as a result of a possible shift of the disk supporting the jaws. Moreover, arthritis has been proved by our specialist that indeed it causes TMJ disorder. This is because arthritis damages the joint cartilage in the jaw. Lastly, old age is another condition that causes TMJ disorder. This is because the joint is weaker due to increased tear and wear.

 

What are the risk factors of TMJ disorder?

The common risk factors of TMJ disorder are our daily activities. Once you visit our clinic, TMJ specialist Los Angeles will first confirm that you are actually suffering from TMJ disorder. If he finds out that the pain in your cheeks is a result of TMJ disorder, he will further take you through the corrective measures. Once treated, you will be warned to avoid the risk factors that cause the disorder. The most common risk factor that we have found out is the physical injury to the jaw.

Such injuries are as a result of fighting, boxing or even accidents. Moreover, arthritis is another major risk factor. If found suffering from arthritis we will advice you to take early medication to avoid further damage to the ligaments. We are proud to have Dr. Saadat as our TMJ specialist Los Angeles since he gives the best dentistry treatment here in Los Angeles.
