The Best Available TMJ Treatment in Beverly Hills

TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder) affects the jaw of many people. This joint connects your lower jaw to your skull and consists of muscles that make it one of the strongest and most used in the body. Your temporomandibular joint is used to smile, talk, make facial expressions, and chew.

If your joint has become inflamed, it will be causing you a lot of pain, and it may even have stopped working. If you are suffering these symptoms, you may have TMJ. There are a variety of reasons that can cause the onset of TMJ.

Causes of TMJ

Understanding the cause of your TMJ is vital to getting the right treatment. Dr. Mahnaz Rashti earned her DDS degree from the College of Dentistry at New York University. She is a specialist in jaw, teeth, and mouth areas and understands the complexity of this disorder. TMJ treatment may need a number of diagnostic procedures she is ready to sit down and discuss with you.

When you visit the offices of Dr. Rashti, she will learn what your needs are to resolve the symptoms you’re suffering and help you regain a healthy mouth and jaw. She is the oral and maxillofacial surgeon you need to correctly diagnosis the problem and perform the special imaging studies necessary for a corrective procedure in TMJ treatment.

Physical injury can cause the onset of TMJ. Suffering from a broken or dislocated jaw can bring on inflammation and pain in your joint. If you have strain or damage to the muscles by the joint, you may notice it is not functioning correctly.

Many times when someone suffers an injury to their jaw, they do not realize the pain is a sign medical attention is needed. The problem with not consulting a doctor like Dr. Rashti may cause the area to heal wrong and cause you long-term pain with a joint that doesn’t function as it should.

Arthritis is a major cause of joint disorder as is teeth grinding. With these causes your joint either become inflamed or out of line. Clenching your teeth puts stress on your teeth and jaw, and autoimmune diseases can bring about redness, inflammation, and pain. Dental surgery may put your teeth out of line causing a joint disorder and infections inside your mouth may also result in TMJ. If you have developed this condition, you want to seek the best available TMJ treatment in Beverly Hills.
