TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

Are you experiencing signs of a TMJ-related problem? Our Encino, CA dental team can help you. We offer TMJ and bruxism treatment for anyone who is experiencing pain or discomfort due to a TMJ-related issue. Below you will find information on TMD, bruxism, and how we can help.

What Is TMJ (TMD)?

TMD, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, is characterized by pain and discomfort associated with the TMJ (jaw joint). This pain or discomfort is typically derived from stress to or injury of the TMJ and can manifest in a variety of ways. Common symptoms of TMD include headaches, migraines, jaw pain, neck pain, earaches, sinus problems, and more.

TMD can dramatically decrease your quality of life. If left untreated, the pain and discomfort can become debilitating, depending on the severity of the injury or stress to the joint. While we can perform X-rays and other examinations to determine what is wrong with your jaw joint, we often cannot tell where the problem originated and how the jaw became stressed or damaged. However, we can treat the pain, take pressure off the joint, and allow the TMJ to heal.

What Is Bruxism?

Bruxism is a common factor in jaw joint discomfort and other problems. Bruxism is the unconscious grinding or clenching of the teeth during periods of time when the mind is preoccupied — such as during work or sleep. This grinding and clenching can cause TMJ-related pain such as headaches and jaw pain as well as damage to your teeth. If you think you may be suffering from bruxism, please contact our office. The sooner we diagnose and treat the problem, the sooner you will be able to live comfortably and save your teeth from damage.

Migraine And Headache Solutions

We know that TMJ pain and the side effects of bruxism can be uncomfortable. Our team offers a variety of solutions to help alleviate your discomfort and eliminate pain. We treat TMJ issues and bruxism with mouthguards. These mouthguards are designed to temporarily reposition the lower jaw in order to reduce stress on the joint and guard the teeth from further damage. We also employ various medications and teeth adjustment techniques if needed. In some severe cases of bruxism, we may even recommend a full-mouth reconstruction procedure to solve the problem. If you are in pain due to TMJ-related issues, please do not hesitate to call our office and ask for help.

Dr. Moin and his team are absolutely wonderful. Their office is modern and high tech. Staff is very knowledgable, helpful and friendly. i have had quite a lot of work done at Dr. Moin’s office. I recommend Dr. Moin and hope you have a similar experience.

Dr. Moin is a wonderful dentist. He is professional and does excellent work. Everyone in the office is friendly and helpful – so much so that my 6yr old asked if we could go back. We went to him on a family recommendation and I would highly recommend him to family and friends.

-Suzie B, Acton, CA

My family has been going to Dr. Moin since 1996 and since then, he has been and still continues to be a great dentist. He does an excellent job, whether it’d be extracting a wisdom tooth or simply filling a cavity. You should definitely have Dr. Moin as a dentist; you’re in good hands.

Finally, I found a dentist that is compassionate about what he does. His entire staff is courteous, professional, and caring. I’ve been to many dentist through recommendation of friends and although it wasn’t a bad experience, I haven’t experienced service to this degree. I am a professional in the health care field, and because I work nights and long hours, my bad habits include coffee and drinking soda to stay awake. As a results, I destroyed the enamel on my teeth and soon was embarrassed to smile. I came to Dr. Moin through a referral and was immediately greeted by a friendly, warm staff. I sat in the room with Dr. Moin and explained my concerns and needs. He took the time to listen then explain the procedure and informed me of his 20 plus years experience in cosmetic dentistry. I had an inner warmth and security that somehow validated was he was saying, so proceeded with getting Veneers. Let me tell you, choosing Dr. Moin was the best decision I made. The quality is superb and the price could not be beaten. Colleagues who also have Veneers were shocked about the difference in what they paid compared to what I did and some can’t even tell that I have Veneers. I must say, I highly recommend him to everyone!!! Thank you Dr. Moin and Staff.

Going to a dentist is not always the first thing in your to do list. However, Dr. Iraj Moin makes going to a dentist a pleasant experience. There is never a wait. The office staff are always friendly and they remember you. Dr. Iraj himself has a great personality and very knowledge on his field and the procedures he performs. My overall experience is excellent and my entire family has him as a dentist and we are pleased with him.
