Los Angeles Facial Features
Improve Your Facial
Do you have a double chin, excess skin around your neck or a weak jaw line that you feel insecure about? Have you considered plastic surgery to correct these flaws? If so, you may be treating only part of the problem. It is possible that you have these problems as a result of TMJ syndrome. By correcting your misaligned joint, you can also improve your facial features, without the need for surgery. TMJ therapy may be the face lift that you have been looking for!
Without realizing it, you may be suffering from TMJ disorder. The symptoms of TMJ can masquerade as other problems, so it is often misdiagnosed. Headaches, back pain, cracked teeth, vertigo and numbness in hands are just a few of the ways that TMJ can present itself. Depending on how severely misaligned the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is, helps to determine the severity of one’s symptoms. One symptom can arise or several can present themselves. The individuality of each person’s pain is another reason TMJ can go undiagnosed. However, if you seem to be experiencing some of these issues and you also have facial features that are less than desirable, as previously discussed, you may be the perfect candidate for TMJ therapy.
TMJ therapy is completed through the field of neuromuscular dentistry. At Millennium Dental in Los Angeles, California, Dr. Eddie Siman is a TMJ specialist, with advanced training in diagnosing and treating TMJ disorder. Dr. Siman’s focus is finding the most relaxed position for your jaw to be in. Your bite is analyzed through the use of diagnostic testing and state of the art technology. Once your comfortable bite position is determined, an orthotic is created specifically for your needs. An orthotic acts as an extension of your teeth and it will then, in turn, create a more comfortable bite. Your TMJ symptoms will be alleviated and your facial features will be improved. The way your jaw and teeth support the soft tissue of your face directly effects how you look. This is why double chins and excess skin can appear when the jaw joint is misaligned.
Before you invest in cosmetic surgery, which can be invasive and painful, consider cosmetic dentistry to help improve your facial features. You may be surprised to learn that your features can be easily improved, along with creating a healthier you. The non surgical approach to TMJ therapy can give you a new lease on life.
