Holistic TMJ Solutions in Newport Coast

The Alternative You’ve Been Seeking

Have you been living with a condition like TMJ because you just didn’t like the standard treatment – or found it uncomfortable or not especially effective?

Or maybe you’ve been newly diagnosed and are exploring options beyond a night guard, hot/cold packs, and pain pills for TMJ disorders (TMD).

Here at the Laguna Hills Center for Sleep Apnea & CPAP Intolerance, we take a holistic and personalized approach to treating OSA. Instead of managing symptoms, we strive to address root causes to bring long-term relief – and to do so in gentle, minimally invasive, and cost-effective ways.

Frankly, we think it’s a better way to support our patients’ oral AND whole body health and well-being.

Real TMJ Pain Relief the Drug-Free, Surgery-Free Way

While you often hear people refer to jaw joint pain as “TMJ,” the term is actually shorthand for the joints themselves – the temporomandibular joints. Like any joints, they can become damaged over time, whether from injury or just the repeated long-term stress of a clenching or grinding habit (bruxism).

Such TMJ disorders – TMDs for short – can become extraordinarily painful, to the point of limiting daily activities. Chronic headaches, along with jaw, face, neck, and shoulder pain, are common.

While surgery may be called for in some severe cases, most of the time, some form of splint therapy is used to either realign or stabilize the bite, relieving the TM joints. But at the Laguna Hills Center, we don’t stop with just that.

Wanting more satisfying solutions for her patients, Dr. Ann Abdulla has devoted herself to deepening her TMJ knowledge, becoming expertly trained in a wide range of proven methods for treating TMDs comprehensively and holistically. Her customized treatment plans often bring together multiple therapies, including

  • Physical therapy-type exercises to relax face and jaw muscles.
  • Meditation to reduce stress and manage stressors.
  • Ultrasound therapy to deliver pain relief to neck and face muscles.
  • Custom, lightweight, and flexible splints to realign the jaw during sleep.
  • Myofascial trigger point release therapy, which applies external pressure to specific points around the face and neck, releasing stored tension.

Many patients notice improvement after the first visit and each subsequent visit. Most typically report that they are pain-free within 6 to 8 weeks.

That sounds better than a lifetime of night guards and pain pills or intrusive surgery, wouldn’t you say?
