Center founder Dr. Ann Abdulla encourages people to seek treatment as soon as possible once they notice symptoms such as head, jaw, face, or neck pain; popping sounds upon opening and closing the mouth; and chronic headaches. Left untreated, the condition can lead to serious misalignment of the jaw and issues with basic functions such as chewing and speaking.

It’s important that those with TMJ issues see a specialist in treating TMDs, since the TMJ structure is complex and requires expert knowledge of how the bones, discs, tendons, and jaw muscles interact with each other.

Dr. Ann Abdulla has received advanced training in diagnosing orofacial conditions. She has over 25 years of experience in the sector and is committed to devising holistic treatment plans that address the sources of discomfort as well as the symptoms.

According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, TMDs affect up to 12% of Americans, mostly women and young people. Other symptoms include muscle spasms, facial swelling, ringing in the ears, decreased mobility, and stiffness in the neck or shoulders.

Taking a non-invasive approach to orofacial and dental care, the Laguna Hills Center offers non-surgical treatments and personalized care plans designed to deliver lasting relief. These include varying combinations of oral appliance therapy, exercises, stress management, and relaxation techniques that support healthy jaw function.

Oral appliance therapy is an especially effective treatment often recommended by the Center. Using custom-fitted oral devices that can be worn at night, they target the cause of the condition at its source. This treatment can be supported by ultrasound and myofascial trigger point release therapies that deliver targeted pain relief. For treatment-resistant cases, the team can perform Botox injections.
