Dr. Abdulla Provides Safe, Effective & Affordable TMJ/TMD Treatment

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) is a major cause of jaw and orofacial pain. TMD can be triggered by arthritis, genetics, stress, unconscious teeth grinding, jaw injury, or the misalignment of any part of your temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Because the causes of TMJ disorders are vast and symptoms can vary, treatment often involves more than one method for long-lasting or permanent relief.

As a trusted Board Certified Dentist who is dedicated to holistic dentistry, Dr. Angham (Ann) Abdulla, DDS takes a whole-body approach to TMD treatment, taking into careful consideration the many aspects of a patient's life that can affect temporomandibular joint health in order to accurately diagnose TMD and come up with a comprehensive, multi-modal plan to treat its underlying causes.

Laser Acupuncture Therapy Effectively Relieves TMD Symptoms, Including Jaw Pain, Discomfort & Inflammation--Without the Use of Needles!

Dr. Abdulla's holistic approach to TMJ disorder includes the use of laser acupuncture therapy, an innovative practice that blends ancient technique with modern technology to treat jaw discomfort, popping, clicking, and inflammation. Used in combination with other forms of treatment, laser acupuncture offers safe, effective relief from chronic and acute TMJ pain.

Both laser acupuncture and traditional acupuncture reduce pain sensation through the direct stimulation of a nerve, which in turn releases endorphins, neurotransmitters, and additional biological reactions. However, unlike traditional acupuncture methods which rely on needles to stimulate the nerve and require up to 30 minutes of needle penetration, laser acupuncture uses a low-level or "cold" laser and only needs to be applied to each targeted area for 15-90 seconds. This makes laser acupuncture therapy a great option for TMD patients who experience needle phobia, prefer non-invasive treatments, and wish to avoid pharmaceutical drugs or want to stop relying on pain relievers and muscle relaxants.

I have been going to Dr. Abdulla since I was very young. Recently I have been having TMJ problems, to the point that it was becoming difficult to chew my food. I started TMJ physical therapy with Dr. Abdulla and was already feeling much better after my first session! She is very gentle and has the right technology to bring relief (ultrasound and laser acupuncture were part of my session). I will definitely be back for more TMJ sessions!
