Treating TMD in Beverly Hills, CA

Touch your face, just in front of your ears, while opening and closing your mouth. The movement you feel is your temporomandibular joints working. If the pressure of your fingertips causes jaw pain, you may have TMD – temporomandibular joint disorder. The chiropractor at Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills is trained in treating TMD with drug-free, biological techniques. Patients in the Beverly Hills, CA area smile comfortably with this effective treatment.

Understanding TMD symptoms

While TMD originates in the jaw, the condition may cause symptoms all over the body. This can easily lead to misdiagnosis, or pain-masking medications with conventional medical treatment. Our group of dental specialists works closely with our staff chiropractor to help patients find relief from:

  • Facial tenderness, aching, or swelling
  • Earaches
  • Ear noises
  • Jaw noises
  • Discomfort chewing
  • Difficulty opening the mouth
  • Jaw locking open or closed
  • Stiffness in the neck and shoulders
  • Headaches

Chiropractic approach

Problems with the jaw joint occur when muscle tension pulls the jaw to the skull tightly and out of balance. This misalignment compresses discs that cushions the TMJs, and increases pressure on the joints. Ligaments stretch, allowing misalignment to progress further. Without treatment, the disk degenerates, resulting in nerve irritation.

The best treatment plan is an overall wellness approach that includes chiropractic adjustment in addition to dental bite balancing. Dr. Joseph Canul improves range of motion and alleviates nerve irritation with a proprietary technique of gentle skull, jaw, and upper spine manipulation. He may also incorporate soft tissue therapies to break up adhesions on ligaments and muscles.

Many TMD sufferers become discouraged with medical treatment that does not address the underlying cause of their discomfort. They want an alternative to medications that dull the senses and have systemic side effects. They find compassion and solutions at Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills.
