Dr. David Shirazi
Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders (TMJDs) refer to a complex set of conditions that can cause pain in the area of the jaw joint and associated muscles and/or problems using the jaw. Both or just one of the TM joints may be affected. TMDs can affect a person’s ability to speak, eat, chew swallow, make facial expressions and even breathe.
The American Headache Society (in which Dr. Shirazi is a member of) has classified headaches into three main groups. Those groups are: Primary Headaches (The vast majority of headaches: Tension Type, Migraine Type, and Cluster Type headaches)
Sleep apnea specialist Los Angeles says it can be a serious sleep disorder. People who have sleep apnea stop breathing for 10 or more seconds at a time while they are sleeping (one apneic event). These short cessations in breathing can happen up to 800 times or more every night.
The noisy sounds of snoring occur when there is an obstruction to the flow of air through the back of the mouth and nose. This area is the collapsible part of the airway where the tongue and upper throat meet the soft palate and uvula. Snoring occurs when these structures get close to touching each other and vibrate during breathing. When they do touch each other and don’t vibrate, then that individual has one apneic event.
A power mouthguards’ technology is intended to help physically place your jaw in the most optimal position, thus improving overall reaction time, performance and airway.
Some have experienced chemical reactions to the materials and plastics found in “other” brand name Aligners, whether due to the plastic themselves, or the processing. Our hypoallergenic materials make the use of aligners more safe and less likely to have a biological reaction that is unexpected, especially when other liquids such as saliva interact with them.
FACE, JAW, AND AIRWAY FOCUSED ORTHODONTICS Most people associate orthodontia with the application of braces to correct crooked teeth, especially in children. Dr. Shirazi, however, treats a wide variety of conditions in people of all ages WITHOUT BRACES.
