Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (tmj) (tmd) / Myofacial Pain Disorder

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder / Myofacial Pain Disorder is a pathological process that can be incited by subconscious habits. Some habits that are notable in leading to Temporomandibular Joint Disorder / Myofacial Pain Disorder is grinding and clenching. Grinding and Clenching increases the pressure and tension placed on the joint and can lead to arthritis in the future. In addition to increasing joint pressure and tension, constant muscle function and use will lead to inflammation of the muscle and Temporomandibular Joint. Any muscle in the body that is over functioned and used will have inflammation and lead down the path of pain. A main form of treatment and path to diminish the stress and strain from grinding and clenching is application of botox into the muscles of the Temporomandibular Joint. Botox into these muscle groups will decrease the stress and strain placed and lead to relief from Temporomandibular Joint Disorder / Myofacial Pain Disorder.

What Our Patients Say About Us

Even our patients who have been told in the past that they are not good candidates for dental implants have found options at our clinic.

Mindy W.

This is a very welcoming center. Everyone seemed very competent and helpful. I had an oral biopsy today. No waiting. The staff were ready for me and all was in place. Dr. Yagoubian was warm , cheerful and I felt in extremely capable hands. I am so grateful I was referred to him. Sincerely, Mindy W.

Raj G.

Dr. Yagoubian is excellent. I was in state for business when my wisdom tooth broke. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Yagoubian's office. Everyone there was professional and courteous. The procedure went smoothly. Dr. Y is highly skilled, meticulous, and a very personable health care provider (a rarity in the field, in my opinion). If you need an oral surgeon, I highly recommend him.

Chahab S.

Dr Yagoubian is an excellent oral surgeon, supported by a very professional staff. They made the experience as stress-free as possible. Highly recommended.

Paul M.

A positive experience from start to end. I got a sense that this was going to go well and it did. Two extractions, two implants, bone graft and removal of four part bridge. Leaving part of the bridge on one tooth. If there were 10stars they would be for Torrance oral surgery group and Dr. Alicia Wolf / Blanco Demtal Group for recommending Ben.
