TMJ, Los Angeles Dentist Dr. Igal Elyassi Has A Team Of Experts To Treat TMJ

Wilshire Smile Studio Provides Affordable Options

Los Angeles dentist Igal Elyassi, D.D.S., and his team have had tremendous success with what is commonly called TMJ, which stands for temporomandibular jaw disorder.

The symptoms may include jaw soreness when you chew, the muscles in your face feeling tired, ear pain, headaches, dizziness, neck or shoulder pain, limited ability to open your mouth, or a popping or grinding sound when you open it, chew, or speak.

The temporomandibular joint is located just in front of both your ears and connects your bottom jaw with your teeth, a hinge that allows you to open and close your mouth. Contributing factors to this disorder include missing teeth, teeth not coming together properly when you bite, stress, excessive chewing of gum, arthritis, injury, and grinding your teeth.

Fortunately, Los Angeles dentist Dr. Elyassi’s Wilshire Smile Studio has a wide variety of treatments, including:

• *Joint exercises.
• *Relaxation techniques.
