At TruGlo Modern Dentistry, we understand how painful this condition is and we are here to help.

What IS TMJ Disorder?

The temporomandibular joint is the joint that connects the top and bottom jawbone. There is a joint on each side of the jaw, acting like a hinge, connecting the jawbone to the skull.

TMJ disorder is caused by a bite misalignment that begins at that joint. It is estimated that at least 10 million people in this country suffer from the painful disorder. The pain may be due to a combination of factors, including jaw injury, arthritis, or genetics. Some patients who suffer with TMJ also have the tendency to grind or clench their teeth.

Patients with TMJ often suffer from sometimes depilating symptoms, including the following:

  • Chronic headaches
  • Chronic pain in the neck or shoulders
  • Clicking, popping, sensitivity, or pain in the jaw
  • Migraines
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Tooth pain or sensitivity

Many people who suffer from TMJ disorder do not realize that there is relief with TMJ treatment in Beverly Hills.

Diagnosing Your TMJ Pain

When dealing with pain related to your teeth, mouth, and jaw, there are many things that it could be. From a cavity to an ear infection, there are plenty of reasons that you may be experiencing pain. However, you want to ensure you are getting help from the right resource so that you can get the proper diagnosis and move on with treatment to help your pain go away. TMJ dysfunction can be very painful and it can also be tricky to diagnose. Many TMJ symptoms can present as other types of problems and it can be confusing to identify what the exact issue is. You want to ensure you are seeking help from a dentist who can provide you with a comprehensive exam that may include both a physical exam as well as medical images. 

The Cause of TMJ Dysfunction

There are a few things that could be causing your TMJ dysfunction. This includes former trauma to your teeth. If you play sports or have otherwise injured your mouth, you may be experiencing TMJ pain. Further, jaw misalignment or teeth grinding can also contribute to this dysfunction and cause problems with other areas in your mouth. It is crucial that once you begin experiencing symptoms, you seek help from a qualified dentist as soon as possible. Without getting help, you may be dealing with chronic pain, headaches, and pain in your jaw. This will only get worse the longer you take to get help.  

What You Need to Know About TMJ – And How You Can Treat It

TMJ disorder means clicking, popping, and pain… but fortunately, a specialist in TMJ treatment Beverly Hills, CA trusts can help you get past the popping and get on with your life. Read on to get the quick facts about TMJ, and see what you can do to ease the noise and the pain before you even set foot in a dentist’s office.

TMJ Disorder Means a Joint Problem

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) sits on either side of your jaw, right next to your ears. When it’s working right, it means your jaw can open and close with ease. However, in the event of a variety of different problems, the TMJ doesn’t operate as smoothly as it should. That’s where the cracking and pain comes from.

There are Several Causes to TMJ Disorder

Do you grind your teeth at night? Have you been stressed to the point of clenching your jaw at all hours? What about any sudden impacts or injuries to your jaw or face? TMJ disorder can be caused by all of the above, and more. When your temporomandibular joint is swollen, injured, or otherwise off-center, you run the risk of developing TMJ disorder.

You Can Improve Your TMJ.

TMJ disorder is oftentimes solved by simple lifestyle changes. Dialing back your chewing gum consumption is a great start, especially if you’re an avid gum-chewer. You can also make changes to your diet, incorporating softer foods so you’re not putting too much stress on your TMJ. If your TMJ disorder is linked to a stressful lifestyle, you may also need to take steps to destress and preserve your TMJ.

There Are Varying Degrees of Treatment

When you need help for your TMJ disorder, you can count on dentists who specialize in TMJ treatment in Beverly Hills. They’ll be able to examine your teeth, your facial muscles, and your jaw to determine whether or not the painful clicking you’re experiencing is linked to TMJ, and they can also help you determine which treatment option is the best choice for you. In some cases, TMJ can be solved with medication or a corticosteroid injection, but in other cases, it may require more intensive dental care.

Intensive Care for TMJ Starts at Stabilizing Your Bite

When it comes to more intensive care for your TMJ, your dentist will need to stabilize your bite. This will involve using a specialized implant so your jaw has a good starting place for further treatment. After stabilizing your bite, your dentist may resort to using braces, or even grinding down (or building up) existing tooth enamel to permanently solve your TMJ.

Beverly Hills TMJ Treatment FAQs

What Kinds of Things Will my Dentist be Looking For? 

When your dentist is examining your mouth to determine what the problem is, there are certain signs and symptoms of TMJ that they will be looking out for. 

  • Problems with the muscle in your face
  • Pain or tenderness in the jaw joint
  • Any pops or clicks when you move your jaw
  • Determining if your teeth have alignment issues
  • Signs of infection, nerve issues, or headaches
  • Signs of cavities or uneven surfaces
  • Issues with grinding or clenching

Some of these are symptoms of TMJ while others are symptoms of other issues that could be causing your teeth and jaw pain. Your dentist will want to take a close look to rule out other causes of your pain before giving you a diagnosis of TMJ. 

Can Stress Affect my TMJ Dysfunction? 

Absolutely. Stress can play a huge part in how serious your symptoms are and the amount of pain you are dealing with. Stress can cause physical symptoms, such as clenching, jaw muscle tension, and teeth grinding. Not only can these factors influence your TMJ dysfunction but they can cause your symptoms to be much worse. 

The best next steps you can take are to get help from a qualified dentist as soon as possible. Call our office to set up an appointment and be prepared to discuss your symptoms and how long they have been going on. We care about getting you the help you need when you are living with chronic pain caused by TMJ dysfunction.

How Is TMJ Disorder Treated?

There are a number of treatment options that are available for patients who suffer with TMJ disorder. The first thing that a dentist will do is to provide relief for the patient’s symptoms. There are several different options for this, including a treatment that stimulates the production of endorphins in order to help with pain relief.

The next step is to stabilize the patient’s bite. This is usually done with an acrylic device that is worn over the patient’s teeth. Since the device is made out of acrylic, your dentist can easily adjust the device in order to stabilize and align your bite without having to adjust the teeth.

Once the patient’s painful symptoms have been alleviated and their bite stabilized, the next step the dentist will take is to permanently adjust their bite into the right position. There are several ways this can be done:

  • Coronoplasty – This procedure is for bites that are only slightly misaligned. The dentist smooths and reshapes the teeth’s enamel.
  • Orthodontics – Braces and other orthodontic devices move teeth to the optimal position, permanently correcting the teeth’s position and bite.
  • Removable partial dentures – These partial dentures fit on the patient’s back teeth.
  • Reconstruction – The dentist will use crowns to make the teeth higher, permanently realigning the patient’s bite and providing support for the jaw.

“I had an appointment with TruGlo Modern Dental yesterday and this was one of the best experiences I have had. I got my deep cleaning and some x-rays done. Nora and the staff there did an amazing job. If you are thinking about choosing a dentist/dental office TruGlo is the place to go. They have an amazing staff who are highly competent in their fields and provide the best service. Also, I went to the Beverly Hills location this one is fairly new but their Hollywood location is just as good. My entire family goes here and we always have the best experience!” – Sumera C.

Rhonda is kind, knowledgeable and thorough. Her office staff is confident, positive and helpful. Rhonda explains the necessary procedures in detail - it feels like being in a top notch teaching hospital full of fun science enthusiasts. Rhonda and her hygienist Amani instill confidence and continue to inspire me to practice good hygiene and self care.Update. I cracked my front tooth! And was so sad. Didn’t want to smile. But Rhonda is an artist and sculpted new veneers and made my new smile so natural and lovely. She’s simply the best!

I'm 53 years old and one of these fools that didn't go to the dentist for 15 years. I simply have crazy anxiety about the dentist. I finally started seeing Doctor Kalasho in 2022 and later Dr Yalda in 2023-4. Both doctors are at the highest level of expertise. They are both very welcoming doctors with a great chair side manner and I believe offer the highest level of skill and experience you can get from a dentist. The entire office is friendly and after a few visits I am completely over my anxiety about visiting the dentist. I have had 4 crowns 3 extractions 1 wisdom tooth pulled and 1 root canal done. I was never once in pain from the procedure or the anesthetic injections. Take it from somebody that used to be terrified of the dentist I love going to TruGlo. You could not be in better hands! Thank you TruGlo!

Dr. Kalasho, Dr. Ginsberg, and staff Nora, Diana, Misha, Lesley, and Ariana at the Hollywood location are all amazing. I have always been scared of dentists, in particular dental cleanings. Nora always does an amazing job, and makes sure nothing is missed. I saw Dr.Ginsberg today to treat a cavity, she was amazing, very sweet amazing bed side manner ( all of them do by the way). Whether its the hollywood location or bevery hills location, I know I am in good hands and will be taken care by the most amazing people who go above and beyond.

Cannot recommend this place enough! My sister kept telling me how amazing it is so I gave it a try. It’s easy to park in the nearby parking garage and the building is very secure. The offices are SUPER modern and nice! I have anxiety with dental procedures and they made me feel super calm (they even have weighted blankets to help lol) — they use numbing for cleaning so they can actually get everything squeaky clean without it hurting! This is hands down the best dentist I’ve been to. Amani is my dental hygienist and she’s AMAZING! Highly recommend this place!

I’ve been coming here for over 5+ years and genuinely could not recommend this office more. Everyone is so kind, especially Norah, Dr. Khamis, Nora, Ariana, Lesley, Diana, and most of all Dr. Khalasho who has become my friend over the years and worked nothing short of miracles. She saved my tooth from having to be pulled and it was ALOT of work and still going strong all these years later. They have the best and latest technology always! They use this face roller when getting numbed and don’t even notice the needle! This review is SO overdue! Thank you Tru GLO!

Thank you to TruGlo for their amazing treatment and care. I was having a horrible toothache and had not been to the dentist in quite some time. I called TruGlo and was greeted in a professional and friendly manner. They were able to fit me in that same day for immediate treatment. The Doctors and staff were professional and super friendly. I was able to get treatment which helped me feel better almost immediately. I'm now follow up plan to help get my teeth and smile back in tip top condition. Their membership plan also saves me a lot of money over the whole process. I couldn't recommend TruGlo more. Special shout out to Leslie, Arianna, Misha, Dr. Yalda & Dr. Kalasho. 🙏🏻🤗😁
