  • Los Angeles Cosmetic Dentist aka "Artist of the Smile" 90210 Full Mouth Reconstruction Beverly Hills & Los Angeles California Full Mouth Reconstruction utilizing Neuromuscular dentistry as the art and science of using the relaxed position of the muscles of the head and neck to place the jaw into an optimal physiologic position. Twenty-five years of research and clinical experience have shown this technique to be effective in treating patients with various levels of head and neck pain. It is also used in finding the optimal jaw position before restorative dentistry and greatly increases the longevity of restorations and natural dentition. The process involves using a sophisticated computer program to record and interpret tempromandibular joint (TMJ) sounds, masticatory (chewing) muscle activity (EMGS) and the path of movement the jaw follows in function. This information allows us to find the most relaxed physiologic position for the jaw and combined with tomography (specialized jaw joint x-ray) helps determine the best bite for comfort and aesthetics. IF YOU SUFFER FROM * Headaches * Unexplained loose teeth * Worn, chipping or cracked teeth * Cracking, chipping or breaking dental restorations * Pain or soreness around the jaw joints * Pain in teeth that seems to move around * Neck, shoulder or back pain * Facial pain * Clicking or grating sounds in the jaw joints * Limited movement or locking jaw * Numbness in you fingers and arms * Congestion or stuffiness of the ears THEN WE MAY BE ABLE TO HELP YOU ...
  • iCAT Flythrough Extreme Headache patient in Orthodontics with Subluxed C2 and Early TMJ ***age patient with chronic unremitting headache non-responsive to meds. Pause video to examine front teeth flaring with thinning or absent labial bone, TMJoint space thinning (most likely due to heavy masticatory muscle contraction during periods of deep sleep (micro-siezures)); notice the significant cervical subluxations. This is not uncommon in orthodontic cases using self-ligating brackets when the tooth size is large, and becomes a debilitating problem when associated with the cervical subluxation and compromised metabolism (common in maturing young patients). TMJ changes are most likely recent.

  • Surface Electromyography of the Masticatory Muscles This video introduces the use of surface electromyography (sEMG) for examining the facial muscles during eating. Electromyograms are recordings of the small electrical signals generated by muscle movement, and EMG is often used to diagnose injuries or other pathologies affecting muscle activity. Our interest has been in using EMG to study the activity and function of healthy volunteers during eating. Electromyograms contain information that can be related to the physical properties of the foods being consumed, and also to sensory evaluations made by the volunteer whilst eating. Thus, EMG may provide an explanatory link between measurements of texture made using instrumentation, and evaluations of texture as experienced by the consumer.
  • "Closed Lock" of jaw corrected without surgery "Closed Lock" of jaw corrected without surgery For more information It is quite disconcerting and even scary for a patient when the jaw gets "stuck" in a closed position. There are many causes of limited mouth opening including pericoronitis, myositis, masticatory muscle spasms, Non Reducing Disc Displacement ("Closed Lock") and others. This can cause pain, prevent normal chewing or speaking and adequate oral hygiene. When the mandible is unable to have normal range of motion it can lead to headaches, neck pain etc. Patients are often told that the only way to fix it is through surgery. All joint surgical procedures have associated risks including infection and anesthesia risks. Long term success rate is mixed since the surgical procedures do not usually address the underlying cause that led to the NRDD. Christine is a pleasant young lady in her 30's that has had jaw problems most of her life. She would have episodes of jaw pain and limited range of motion. When her jaw "got stuck" for several days when she could not even get a fork or tooth brush in between her teeth, her dentist referred her to a Oral Maxillofacial surgeon in Kansas. He was able to "unlock" her through arthrocentesis procedure. However, he cautioned the patient that it is only a temporary relief. He advised the patient that when it recurs, she may want definitive non-surgical therapy and referred her to our office. The mandible locked again in a month's time. Christine hoped ...

  • Medical Massage For TMJ Disorder medicalmassage- To purchase The New Self Stress Management Massage DVD please click the link above www.medicalmassage- Medical massage in cases of Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders As a result of a tremendous exposure to stress, the development of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders has reached pandemic proportions. Subscribe to To Your Health. TMJ sufferers experience high-intensity headaches, difficulty with chewing, painful joint clicking and popping, and other symptoms. With the progression of the pathology, individuals may even develop sleep disorders. TMJ Anatomy The TMJ is formed by the temporal and mandibular bones. Attached to the mandibular condyle is a fibrocartilage meniscus or articular disk, which allows the mandible to move smoothly. The masticatory muscles (temporalis, masseter, lateral pterygoid, and medial pterygoid) are responsible for movement and stabilization of the TMJ. Bruxism: Due to stress, people often develop bruxism. Bruxism is a pathological clenching and grinding of teeth that usually occurs during sleep. Bruxism is caused by the hyperactive contraction of the masticatory muscles. Imagine any other muscles in our support and movement system kept under tight contraction for seven hours. Pathological hypertonus in these muscles will be formed, followed by restriction of range of motion, trigger point development, and other symptoms. With time, hypertonic condition in the masticatory muscles leads to the development of ...

  • Trigger point injection treatment for tinnitus, part 3 After spray and stretch of the muscles, I palpate the muscles to find the trigger points. They are harder than the other parts of the muscle and usually a little painful compared to the rest of the muscle. The most important trigger point for Jaana is in the sternocleidomastoid muscle, in the middle part of it. It is a common tinnitus triggering place for other patients too. The trigger points are not in the same place in everyone and they have to be located by fingers all round the neck and in the masticatory muscles. I use Lidocain 1% and inject 0.2-0.5 millilitres to each point, usually 2 to 5 points in one session (Marja Estola).

  • Bruxism, Migraines and Headache Solutions Bruxism is Teeth Grinding! The main factors that cause teeth grinding are... Number one... Environmental stressors. That includes all the stress that life brings you.. whether it's getting married or a divorce, preparing for finals in school, when your best friend is getting married, when someone close loses a job, or when the economy goes into recession etc. The second most common factor that causes teeth grinding is an interference in the masticatory system... WHAT? Sorry for that dental jargon. That just means that your bite isn't exactly perfect. Teeth that mesh (or don't mesh) together is what I'm talking about. See, the lower jaw bone is called the Mandible. The Mandible has an upper part (the Condyle) that is part of the TMJ (Temporo Manibular Joint). When the Condyle is in the right place and at the same time when the teeth fit perfectly together without interferences when chewing, you basically have a perfect bite. The more your bite is off... the higher the tendency you have to experience teeth grinding. For more information, visit:

  • Face, Head and Neck Self-Massage This video is not a complete instructional self-massage video, but only a 10 minute routine that everyone can implement in order to promote skin health and stress management. If you would like to see the full instructional video please follow this link Materials presented in this video lesson can directly improve your ability to manage stress and tension headaches, and is a great contributor to facial skin health and anti-aging efforts. These techniques are not a substitute, but are an important clinical addition to estheticians' customary skin care methods. Facial expressions are achieved by constant constriction of facial muscles. With time muscles accumulate tension and as a result we carry much stress in our head, face and neck areas. For example, chewing or masticatory muscles can accumulate so much tension that it will cause Temporomandibular joint or TMJ dysfunction. Fascia, the outer layer that covers and separates muscles, also accumulates tension. Fibers of fascia don't have the potential to constrict like muscles. Its tension is always the result of metabolic insufficiencies due to muscular tension. Consequently, the vessels within muscles are not providing the fascia with sufficient blood supply; in other words, the condition at which the demand of blood supply is much higher than available. Insufficiencies of blood supply to fascia are not only responsible for the accumulation of tension, but also significantly disturb the nutritional supply ...
  • Treating Sinus Headache Sinus Symptoms Jaw pain comes from many sources. The first question that needs to be addressed is... is it a bone tumor, cyst or cancer? Out of 17 years or so of treating patients, I have only found a handful (6-8) of Tumors, which mostly are Benign, but may be malignant also; I think I've had about 3 being malignant. So, the first thing that should be checked out, is the cancers and tumors. You typically don't have to ask for that, we Dentists routinely just look for that first. When you report to your Dentist that you have TMJ jaw pain, he/she should take a panorex xray to check for tumors or cancer. When tumors/cysts are ruled out, then the TMJ exam can begin. Most of the time, when you have Jaw pain, it is muscle pain. Let me say that again... Muscle Pain. The jaw muscles (masticatory muscles) are usually fatigued from over working. How do they overwork? When people clench or grind their teeth too much day or night. Most of the time, people grind their teeth at night. People can have fatigue or overworked jaw muscles just by Tension and stress in their lives. Most don't realize that they are clenching when in fact they are. Also, sometimes it seems that just the tension causes muscle to ache, even though clenching is not happening. Then you have the patients that have accidents or trauma that causes the pain, one way or another. Please read the Causes of TMJ and/or TMJ treatments to understand more thoroughly about your TMJ concerns. Then if you want to try an easy Home Remedy, When ...
