TMJ is a condition that almost 90% of patients suffer from. It is a dislocation of the jaw that cause pain such as headaches due to grinding or excessive pressure on the teeth. There are different levels of severity for TMJ and not everyone suffers from the same symptoms. If left untreated, TMJ can lead to a condition called lock jaw where the ability to close the jaw is affected and requires surgery.
Dr. David Rudolph is one of the few specialist in Southern California that specializes in TMJ treatment by use of corrective appliances to fix this issue. TMJ treatment will alleviate many symptoms caused by TMJ and correct the alignment of the jaw. This can prevent costly dental surgeries in the future and can promote better oral health.
