Live in Los Angeles and Have TMJ Dysfunction?
TMJ stands for the Temporomandibular Joint. It is the joint that attaches your lower jaw (mandible) to the temporal bones in your skull. The TMJ serves as a hinge for the jaw and moves together every time you use your mouth. Any disruption or damage to these joints could lead to a medical and dental problem known as TMJ Dysfunction or TMJ. This is a chronic illness that affects 75 million people.

Los Angeles TMJ Specialist Dr. Siman Offers Relief
With Dr. Siman’s advanced studies and expert training at the prestigious LVI institute for TMJ and full-mouth reconstruction dentistry, he has become a renowned doctor worldwide. In his Millennium Dental practice near Beverly Hills, he takes the utmost care to add to your comfort. In his diagnosis, Dr. Siman determines if your bite is significantly contributing to your symptoms. He can create a provisional new bite for you that will alleviate your symptoms and also make you feel comfortable.
Dr. Siman believes, it is important for you to be comfortable with the new bite before a commitment is made to receive full mouth reconstruction. If Dr. Siman's assessment indicates that your symptoms of jaw pain, neck pain and/or headaches can be improved with corrective bite (occlusal) treatment, he may use an orthotic first to stimulate the corrected-bite position. An orthotic is simply a comfortable repositioning appliance that can be bonded to your teeth and act as an extension of your teeth. It not only alleviates your symptoms but also improves the function and aesthetic of your teeth. Once patients experience significant relief from symptoms and obtain the desired results, then Dr. Siman may recommend full mouth reconstruction to sustain the optimal bite permanently.
