The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a powerful structure that manages most of the movements related to your lower face and jaws, allowing you to chew, speak, and move your mouth. But stress, bruxism, incorrect bite, and other such issues can lead to TMJ disorders that prevent you from speaking or eating comfortably. Dr. Rajpal uses cutting-edge technologies to identify the root cause of your TMJ disorder and curate a personalized treatment plan to alleviate your symptoms and jaw pain in Beverly Hills.
What is TMJ Disorder?
TMJ disorder includes a range of symptoms that are associated with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). These joints connect the lower jaw to the skull on each side of the head. Problems in this area develop when excess stress is put on the structures around the joint, including the muscles, teeth, ligaments, and cartilage. If you notice the symptoms of a TMJ disorder, such as headaches, ringing in the ears, popping, grinding, or clicking during jaw movement, please contact Dr. Rajpal to explore your TMJ treatment options.
Dental Night Guards for TMJ Treatment
Dr. Rajpal may offer a dental night guard to treat TMJ disorder. A night guard is a hard dental appliance that applies pressure on your teeth to gradually realign the jaw while you sleep, taking pressure off the strained joints. Dr. Rajpal will take impressions of your teeth and mouth to create a custom-fitted night guard that will restore optimal jaw alignment, which can prevent jaw pain, restore dental alignment, and prevent bruxism. Please talk to Dr. Rajpal to determine if you’re a suitable candidate for TMJ treatment with night guards.
