Tmj Dentist Los Angeles

TMJ disorders affect the temporomandibular joint of the jaw. It can create widespread symptoms that can make normal daily activities difficult or even painful and can significantly reduce your overall quality of life. Our Los Angeles TMJ dentist can help with a variety of treatments and services that can have you feeling like yourself again in no time.

The TMJ connects your bottom jaw to your skull. It is located right in front of your ears and allows you to bite, chew, speak and perform other movements that require your mouth to open and close. The TMJ is a complex joint that allows opening, closing and sliding. It is divided by a disc, which is strong and flexible enough to buffer movements between the skull and the jaw. Other tissues are also located in the TMJ, including muscle, ligaments, cartilage and tendons. Injury, abnormalities and dental health issues can trigger symptoms of TMJ disorders.


Our TMJ dentist in Los Angeles may recommend further evaluation if you have any symptoms of TMJ disorders, including:

  • Pain, which can be felt anywhere in the joint, face, ear, shoulders or neck
  • Locking, which can prevent the jaw from opening or closing
  • Limited movement
  • A grinding or clicking sensation in the joint
  • Difficulty chewing, which can include both pain and an inability to bite properly
  • An uncomfortable bite or a change in bite
  • Earache, ringing in the ears, dizziness or swelling of the joint
  • Facial discomfort or tiredness

The causes of TMJ disorders can vary, but risk factors for developing TMJ disorders can include bruxism, injury or trauma to the jaw joint, missing teeth, misaligned teeth or jaw, arthritis, bruxism and stress. Our Los Angeles TMJ dentist has extensive experience diagnosing and treating TMJ disorders. We have an in-house CT scan to identify areas of concern and the potential cause of the TMJ disorders. We can then make treatment recommendations to address the root cause, alleviate symptoms and restore your jaw’s health.

If you are suffering from one or more symptoms of TMJ disorders, we can help. Contact our dental office today to learn more or to schedule an appointment with our TMJ dentist in Los Angeles.

Disclaimer: Obviously, every patient’s case is different, and needs to be properly diagnosed and treated by a healthcare professional. Please see your healthcare professional or contact us for an appointment.
