In November 2016, I came to see Dr. Siman because of my TMJ. I was in search for someone who can treat me without surgery. From the beginning to end, my experience was beyond amazing at Millennium dental. Dr. Siman is extremely knowledgeable and confident and has been treating TMJ patients for over 20 years. For someone who has been doing this for so long, he still very much cares about his patients and there well being and comfort. During my treatments , I had questions& concerns and would call the office numerous times. The receptionist would try to answer as much of my questions as she could but if she couldn't, she would say she'd get back to me. Several times, Dr. Siman personally called me back himself to make sure all my concerns were addressed! After my TMJ treatment, I had my top veneers done in his office as well to secure my bite. I was extremely scared and had my doubts but after I had hen put in, I was so happy I had them done by him. He kept them very natural but enhanced my smile on top of fixing my medical issue! Him and his staff are all very professional, kind, and give great customer service! I would highly recommend if you have any TMJ issues to come see Dr. Siman. (I drive from the OC to the valley to see him! It's worth it! )
I am so happy I found Dr. Siman. He is truly a genius when it comes to TMJ. After so many years of suffering in pain, countless dentist, and many night guards. I didn't know where else to turn. I have been suffering for over 6 years with pretty much every symptom in the book. Doctors put me on muscle relaxants and at some point they even recommended surgery. "SURGERY"!! I didn't know where to look. My mom was listening to the radio and it was just crazy enough to try the "TMJ Expert". I called and made an appointment. I'm happy I did the visit was so comprehensive and I learned so much. I didn't even know that some things were related and I dismissed a few things not knowing enough about what was going on. He told me that he could help and to be honest I didn't believe him.( later I find out that if he can't help someone he turns then away). I went in for my first OFFICIAL visit to start my treatment. OhHH it was so weird and I was till skeptical but what the hell. I committed. Oh, my goodness, the first week was rough but sure enough, my symptoms started to slowly diminish. I can't believe it just a few months almost every symptom is gone. My headaches, chronic neck, and shoulder pain, tingling/numb in my finger, clicking, and whatI though were sinuses. Honestly Dr.Siman I can't thank you enough you have given me my life back. You are the real deal 🙂 I can't wait for the next step.
A very happy patient

I wanted to try out a new dentist that could help me with my nightly teeth grinding and occasional teeth cleaning. I heard about Dr. Siman's clinic through a relative. When I first arrived Dr. Siman's clinic, I was caught off-guard by their pristine waiting room. I was instantly greeted by one of their wonderful receptionists and was helped within minutes.
Although I arrived quite early for my appointment, I was taken around back and was prepped to be worked on immediately.After several minutes, Dr. Eddie came into the room, spoke very clearly and worked efficiently. He explained the details about my TMJ and the benefits of proper teeth hygiene as my teeth were getting worked on. I was fitted for the orthotics and left home with my mouth piece. The whole experience was wonderful and the staff was very friendly. I don't see myself going anywhere else for my dental needs for a very long time!
Since I was fourteen years old, I have lived with significant pain due to a dislocated and painful jaw, which was diagnosed as TMJ. Due to this medical condition, I began suffering with excruciating neck and shoulder spasms on a regular basis. In addition, I started living with daily headaches, jaw pain and a severe burning sensation in the majority of my upper body. I once laid in bed for 30 minutes with my alarm blaring, as I was literally unable to move due to a spasm in my neck.
I had been to countless doctors searching for alleviation, including a jaw/pain specialist, chiropractor, multiple physical therapists, dentists, rheumatologists and my primary care physician. No matter how many doctors I had seen, appliances I had worn, bottles of anti-inflammatories and muscle-relaxers I had consumed, years I had been in physical therapy and under chiropractic care, stretching and jaw exercises I had completed, nor tears this condition had caused me throughout my life…there was no relief. The amount of loss I had experienced due to this medical condition was unimaginable.
The only people that truly knew and understood my struggle were my parents. Finally, in 2016, I said to my mother, "I can't live this way." And I meant it. I was in so much pain at that time that I couldn't function.
It was then, that my mother found Dr. Siman.
After all these years of suffering and excruciating pain, the ONLY thing that has diminished my pain and given me a chance at living the rest of my life with quality...is my current treatment plan with Dr. Siman. In June of 2016, I saw Dr. Siman for the first time and began wearing the appliance he created for me. After about two-three weeks, I noticed that my Ibuprofen intake had decreased significantly. I had been keeping a diary of headaches and physical symptoms, and therefore noticed that my frequency of headaches had decreased drastically.
I continued seeing Dr. Siman approximately once per month for regular bite assessments and adjustments. After about four-five months, I was feeling tremendously better. My bite was even and stable, and my head felt lighter and was not in pain!
I scheduled my first dental procedure to put in my temporary teeth in June of 2017. Dr. Siman and his amazing office crew walked me through this process. I then received my permanent teeth in July of 2017. Dr. Siman’s outstanding team including Alex, Sylvia, Gemma and Quinn were all there to support me and make sure that my needs were met.
I have now had my permanent teeth for three weeks, and I am ecstatic! I am truly a different person. My life has changed in so many ways for the better. I can now focus more at work. I am able to spend beautiful time with my family and friends. I now have genuine quality of life. Dr. Siman and his incredible crew gave me my life back. I am so grateful to his artistry, dedication and skill.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions, or would like to receive some additional support. It would be my pleasure to help others in any way possible and to “pay it forward”, as I received so much physical and emotional support throughout this process.

Thank you, Dr Siman!. I came in because of TMD, and your treatment for my misaligned bite has helped a lot! I believe that Dr. Siman is a dental artist and I highly recommend him for help with TMD (TMJ)! His staff is wonderful also.

Dr. Siman and all his staff are beyond amazing! I'm so happy I found him. I've been suffering with TMJ for years and went to several doctors and they all pretty much told me I had to live with pain. Until I went to see Dr. Siman and he explained what was causing this problem and what should we do. I started the treatment and my symptom got better right away. After around 3 months I was painless. Im still under treatment and he and his staff are always really attentive and extremely nice!!

I have struggled with severe TMJ issues for 16 years.
It started with clicking and popping and eventually my jaw wouldn't open more than about an inch. I had my first surgery at age 18, and two more surgeries after that, which both required me to be on a liquid diet for 6 weeks post-op. My symptoms subsided but at 32 they suddenly returned, clicking and popping quickly progressed to again not being able to open my mouth more than an inch. I also had ear aches and migraines and have never IN MY LIFE had a refreshing nights sleep. This was all such a drain on my quality of life, causing depression and stress and perpetuating the problem.
Upon meeting Dr. Siman I was extremely skeptical. I have met countless dentists, orthodontists (had braces twice), oral surgeons, chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, and I have been a very compliant and consistent patient with several methods of treatment recommended by other specialists but experienced ZERO improvement, and probably about $100,000 and 10,000 hours of my time have gone down the drain. Honestly, I expected Dr. Siman's treatment to be yet another failure.
He made a appliance for me to wear (this is vastly different than any other appliance I have been given, and I've been given a ton. It is meticulously adjusted to a beautiful-mind-John-Nash-obsessive-borderline-psychotic degree. A true specialist is hyper-alert to details that escape everyone else in his field and a true specialist can respond with equally detailed innovations and solutions)
I diligently wore the appliance. At first my symptoms worsened. You have to understand, my body was FREAKING OUT, correcting an issue I have lived with probably my whole life without knowing it. Eventually my body learned a whole new way of "being" or "existing."
It has been almost two months since my first appointment. I am almost 100% pain free, I can open my mouth the normal amount (a miracle), I sleep better, have better posture, and most importantly I'm about a thousand times happier. There is no longer a constant reminder of my suffering and limitations every time I chew, talk, or sing (I'm a singer). You have to live a prisoner of your own pain and disability to fully understand the precious and priceless gift of freedom and peace that I have just been given.
Once I was a cynic, and Dr. Siman has made me a believer.

I have been in treatment for TMJ a little over one year. I come in every so often get checked and I've been stable for some time now. They are always friendly and I don't wait. My symptoms are ALL gone my jaw feels better my migraines are gone, and I have no weird ear pain and sounds that no ENT could figure out. Since I began treatment, I have sent over several friends who have had treatment with Dr Siman and all are beginning to feel better already. Some are nearly cured after just few weeks. More reason why I trust and recommend this doctor. I'm ready to have more permanent work done because up to now, all the treatment was reversible if I wanted to. Of course I NEVER want to go back to the pain I suffered for so many years. But it was nice to know that non of the work he did was permanent or irreversible. I know that I have stopped the damage that my misaligned jaw was causing pain throughout all my body. I can't thank Dr Siman enough for giving me my life back. I am excited for my permanent solution! If you are like me and are suffering with unexplained headaches, migraines, ear pain, ringing in the ears, facial pain and no one was able to help you. You should definitely call Dr Siman. He saved me! Fellow yelpers please don't hesitate to reach out, I know the frustration of finding the right solution can be.

My first molar was getting sensitive to cold at an alarming rate so I went in to Dr. Siman's office for a consultation and visit. We found that my night time grinding has caused recession of my gums which led to sensitivity of my tooth. We feared my grinding may have caused enough trauma that I would need a root canal.
First things first, Dr. Siman asked me about other related issues to grinding such as headaches, neck aches, clicking or popping from my jaw... so it was relatively easy to see that I've been suffering from TMJ and it almost caused me to lose a tooth!
He set me up with some TMJ Treatment, made me an orthodic for my mouth to "reset" my jaw and limit my grinding. This is no night guard...this is a bit more technical and defnitely larger than I had imagined, but after wearing 90% of the day and 100% of the night for 2 weeks, I can honestly say that it has helped my headaches, jaw tension and neck pain. At first I was concerned with its size, but after a day it felt completely normal.
I plan on wearing it as prescribed for the next month and hopefully only at night going forward.

I have suffered with TMJ/TMD for about 7 years. Jaw clicks, headaches, neck aches, even vertigo and anxiety were all part of my daily life. Having conducted my own research, I concluded the problem was TMJ/TMD. I had brought this up to several dentists whom all shrugged at the idea as I knew more than them at this point. One day I heard about Dr. Eddie Siman on the radio, specializing in TMJ/TMD treatment. I called the number and scheduled my consultation. Dr. Simans' staff is very warm, friendly, and professional. During my meeting with Dr. Siman, he explained how TMJ/TMD can upset the whole balance of the body both mental and physical. Everything he spoke of was exactly what I was dealing with. The CT scan results showed my jaw was horribly out of alignment of which I thought was my natural bite. Dr. Siman used a tens unit to relax my jaw and took an impression of a relaxed bite. He created an appliance custom to my bite similar to a retainer but much stronger. After the first week, the clicking in my jaw while eating was gone. The device is not made to correct your teeth, but more to provide an adjustable landing for your natural/relaxed bite. I am finding now that while orthodontics as a teen straightened my teeth, the braces did so at the expense of my jaw and ultimate wellbeing. I am now facing more orthodontics to correct my bite to conform to my natural jaw alignment.
A note to parents: Let your children grow into their skulls, if their teeth need straightening, let them make that decision as adults.
If you were forced into braces by your parents and now suffer from TMJ/TMD, I highly recommend Dr. Eddie Siman. He has really changed my life and I am eternally greatful.
Thank you Dr. Siman!

I had many years of pain in my ear and jaw because of TMJ. I went to many doctors with no success. I finally came across Dr. Siman and he has finally fixed my terrible pain. After visiting Dr. Siman after a few times, not only is my pain gone, but I feel like a million dollars. So happy I came to Dr. Siman after all these years.

I went to see Dr. Siman when I began experiencing HORRIBLE pain in my ear due to my TMJ. He is kind, patient, incredibly informative, and very professional. He gave me confidence that not only would he help my problem but that he would bring me on the journey to fixing my problem. Now, a mere month later, I am thrilled to say all my aggressive TMJ symptoms are gone. I thought I was going to have to live in extreme pain and endless dosages of Advil, but thanks to Dr. Siman, I am feeling great. I used to not even be able to open my mouth in the morning, but now with his apparatus, I have no pain at all in the mornings, or throughout the entire day. I am incredibly grateful to Dr. Siman and his amazing, kind, and generous staff (Karina is wonderful!). I realize I still have a bit to go, but already the changes I have seen and feel only in one month makes me a lifelong fan of Dr. SIman. If you or anyone you know is suffering needlessly from the pain associated with TMJ, RUN don't walk to Dr. Siman, he will having you smiling before you know it. 🙂
Dr. SIman is clearly the best dentist I've ever had So thorough and detailed! He has everything that you want a dentist to be like and concerned for my comfort while in his chair. I heard about him based on a friend recommendation. I had pretty much grinded down my teeth due to severe tmj. I did not feel discomfort during my preparation for my crown fitting. He performed restorative work and did an outstanding job. People are always telling me what beautiful teeth I have.
I have been having tmj issues for around three years. Only in the last year did the pain get so bad that it began affecting my everyday life. It was a struggle to eat, exercise, drive, and even lay down on the couch. The pain would get so bad that it affected my mood and I would go nuts basically. Apparently the TMJ issues are caused by a mis aligned bite. I went to Dr. Siman and he created an orthodontic device that sits on my bottom teeth. This in combination with the in office tens treatment fixed the mis alignment and my pain began to subside. If the pain is too much and you just want it to stop, go visit Dr. Siman!
I'm a regular patient at Millenium Dental for TMJ-related treatment. I feel like I need to set the record straight: negative reviews are overwhelmingly the product of the fallout from a Groupon inundation. This small business is not alone in that regard; it's something of a phenomenon if you google "The Groupon effect on Small Businesses." In this case, people intent on a mass-mailed whitening treatment found this practice struggling to respond to literally hundreds of calls a day and this doubtless translated into unavoidable delays when they arrived. Also, any medical professional worth his/her salt is obliged to tell their patients when they notice a cavity or a bad tooth or the beginnings of gum disease even if the sole reason they're in the dentist's chair is to receive a promotional whitening. Unfortunately, this ethical requirement can be viewed as "upselling" by some.
What I can do is provide an observation by a returning, regular patient of over two years, and hope that my review can help the reader decide whether or not they can benefit from a visit to the people at Millenium Dental. Hopefully my testimony can work to provide a more complete picture than a snapshot taken in a moment of frustration.
The office people at the front desk at the Sherman Oaks location are incredibly warm and welcoming, but also efficient, finding just the right touch. Dr. Siman and the other doctors never talk down to me or launch into medical jargon; they keep their diagnoses simple and include you as a partner in the process of determining what courses of treatment they recommend, any alternatives that may exist, and the long term plan for wellness and maintenance. This seems to me to be precisely the opposite picture painted by people who felt the focus of their visit was unnecessary treatments. The practice itself is clean and modern, with the attractive decor, tasteful music and friendly staff creating what I find is a soothing ambience. As to the efficacy of the treatment itself, Dr. Siman's expertise in TMJ treatment is unmatched. My jaw functions in a healthy way, and my quality of life is improved thanks to his skill in practicing Neuromuscular Dentistry. I cannot recommend Millennium Dental highly enough, as I'm a patient with a great many horror stories of bad experiences from dental offices all over the USA and even Australia. Millennium Dental is a gem and has earned my respect and my enthusiastic thumbs up.
Before coming to see Dr. Eddie Simon, I was told by my previous dentist that I basically had to live with the pain of my TMJ disorde - that since my nightguard wasn't effective, my only other option was to undergo surgery. After doing some research on the internet I discovered that Dr. Simon uses advanced technology to help TMJ sufferers live pain-free lives and decided to pay him a visit. And boy am I glad I did! The appliance that he designed for me is priceless! Not only does it get rid of my TMJ pain but its also comfortable to wear at night! I honestly don't know what I would have done without it. Thank you so much!! 🙂
When I first started seeing Dr. Siman I was suffering from daily headaches, neck tension, tinnitus, and jaw muscle tension with occasional clicking. I had to do physical therapy for the muscle tension and saw an ENT for the hearing problem. The hearing test came back above normal and there was nothing he could treat. Still suffering from tinnitus and knowing it was more than just my allergies causing it, I came to see Dr. Siman.
Once I received my Orthotic that he specially fitted to my jaw, I became addicted to it!
The ringing and sensitivity in my ears stopped by that same evening and the temporal and facial muscles relaxed after a few days, less than a week, that I was no longer living on Advil daily like I previously was.
I highly recommend Dr. Siman and his treatment for TMJ!!!!
I have been suffering from TMJ ever since my mid-twenties. I have seen numerous doctors such as chiropractors, E.N.T., oral surgeons, and various other doctors that claimed treating TMJ and no one have been able to fully relieve my symptoms. I was searching the internet and found Dr Siman's website. I went to his office on an emergency basis as my pain was excruciating. I had missed days of work due to the debilitating problems my TMJ was causing. Dr Siman did an examination and palpated my jaw muscles. Dr Siman knew right away that I was suffering from a misaligned jaw and therefore causing all these crazy symptoms. Dr Siman recommended for me to have my jaw realigned to a comfortable position with an orthotic device. Dr Siman relaxed my jaw with a special apparatus and got my appliance a few days later. I have been symtom-free ever since. Dr Siman's approach to TMJ is very hollistic, pain free, and none surgical. Dr Siman is the BEST. I cannot thank Dr Siman enough for all he's done for me. To all TMJ sufferers, stop looking this is the place to go.
