If you find yourself waking up with headaches or a sore or stiff jaw, or have trouble eating, speaking, or opening and closing your mouth, you may be suffering from a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Your TMJ connects your lower jaw to your skull and its cartilage can become damaged. If you are experiencing the symptoms of a TMJ disorder, our dentists, Dr. Arnold R. Balber and Dr. Rica Adorable, can create an appliance to help alleviate the problem. To learn more about TMJ appliances in Woodland Hills, call 818-348-1494 today for a consultation.
