San Carlos Dentist Attends Seminar With Top TMJ Specialist

SAN CARLOS, CA--(Marketwired - January 31, 2015) - Dr. Ghina Morad, who provides San Carlos comprehensive dental services, recently attended a seminar with world-renowned temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) specialist Dr. Mark Piper.

Patients with TMD often grind or clench their teeth and experience joint pain, headaches, teeth sensitivity and poor range of motion in their jaw. A common treatment for TMD is a custom oral appliance that relieves pressure from the patient's jaw.

Dr. Morad offers both headgear splints and Botox treatment for patients with TMD. The Botox injections are used to relieve jaw tension that causes joint issues.

Dr. Morad said the December 2014 conference gave her a better understanding of TMJ problems and orthodontic approaches to therapy. The seminar leader, Dr. Piper, is a graduate of the Harvard Dental School and operates the Piper Education Research Center. Through the center, Dr. Piper gives seminars every year on the latest techniques in treating TMJ disorders. "Because I offer orthodontic treatment and TMJ treatment, the seminar opened the door to more therapeutic approaches to managing TMJ pain and diseases," Dr. Morad said. "It fits perfectly into the dental facial orthodontics that I offer as part of restoring patients' oral function."

Dr. Morad purchased her practice, Dr. Morad Family & Orthodontic Dentistry, in 2003. She offers preventive dentistry, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, pediatric dentistry, orthodontics and TMJ treatment. Her individual services include cleanings, dental sealants, metal-free fillings, onlays, crowns, bridges, teeth-whitening treatment, veneers, root canals, implant restoration, traditional braces, Invisalign and ClearCorrect.

Dr. Morad graduated first in her class from Boston University, earning membership into the prestigious Dental Honor Society. She began practicing in 1996 and worked in the Bay Area before starting her own practice. She also taught as a clinical instructor at the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. She has completed courses in veneer design and preparation, orthodontics, digital smile design and advanced specialized dental-facial orthodontics.

Dr. Morad uses digital X-rays for instant results and clearer images, digital intra-oral cameras, and the DIAGNOdent laser-cavity detector. She also provides oral conscious sedation.

Dr. Morad is a member of national dental honor society Omicron Kappa Upsilon and was nominated for the Best of the Bay and featured on Top Doc, a segment on "The Dr. Oz Show."
