Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the main joint connecting your jawbone to your skull. When the TMJ is misaligned or functioning incorrectly, you may experience pain, difficulty chewing, and a clicking sound when you move your jaw. Assessment by a TMJ specialist is the first step in treatment.
A dental TMJ specialist can help you to achieve the proper jaw alignment through the use of splints, orthodontics, and oral surgery. Dr. Samuel Lasry is a specialist in TMJ treatment, serving the residents of Beverly Hills, Los Angeles. For dental care with the French touch, get in touch to book your appointment.
