Chronic pain can be debilitating, hindering the ability to go about life as usual. It can manifest in many different ways, such as disabling headaches, migraines, jaw muscle soreness and locking of the jaw joint
A common medical issue for millions of people around the world, jaw clenching is characterized by involuntary grinding and clenching of the teeth which can cause varying levels of discomfort to those affected.
Laser therapy is a relatively new treatment for TMJ that has shown promising results. It works by stimulating the cells in the area and promoting healing. Some studies show that it can be as effective as surgery, and has the added benefit of being non-invasive.
If you suffer from frequent and painful migraines, it is important to know if they are caused by a TMJ disorder. You may experience facial tenderness and muscle spasms, as well as headaches in your temples and around your eyes.
Inflammation can affect the TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, resulting in pathologic change and symptoms of pain like headaches, jaw pain or challenging chewing.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
TMJ-related sleep apnea is a disorder that can have severe impacts on a person’s health. It’s due to the interference with airway pathways during sleep, leading to pauses in breathing and inadequate oxygen intake.
Teeth grinding, or bruxism, is a common dental issue relating to TMJ, which can cause significant damage to the teeth and gums. It usually occurs unconsciously during sleep and is often caused by stress or anxiety.
Snoring can lead to sleep deprivation, which can in turn cause daytime fatigue, irritability, and difficulty concentrating. In severe cases, it can even contribute to accidents.

Our Basic Philosophy & System of Treatment
Here at TMJ Therapy Sleep Solution in Southern California, we know that in the absence of trauma, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain is almost always the result of structural problems, which makes it a medical condition.
Typical treatment focuses on symptom management rather than discovering and treating the underlying cause. Unlike this palliative/pain management approach, the treatment philosophy of Farshid Ariz, DMD is to determine the origin or cause of the patient’s symptoms through comprehensive evaluation and diagnostic evaluation, and then provide the ideal therapeutic care modality for the rehabilitation of the injured structures.
Taking this approach, we treat the injured structures by providing custom-designed orthopedic appliances (orthotics) to help rehabilitate the joints and address structural problems. The result is improved function and breathing and the elimination of related symptoms.
