Your jaw can open and close smoothly because of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). It is located where your jaw connects to your skull. When the TMJ is injured or damaged, a debilitating condition known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction or disorder (TMD) can develop. If you experience pain or hear noises when you open your jaw, please schedule an appointment with Dr. Husam Elias. At our Southern California Center for Surgical Arts office, Dr. Elias uses state-of-the-art tools to diagnose and treat your TMD. Options for treating your condition include oral appliances (mouth or night guards), bite adjustment, dental restorations, and much more.

To help diagnose a temporomandibular dysfunction at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts, we will carefully listen to your concerns prior to performing a mouth examination. During the exam, Dr. Elias will study the movement of your jaw and look for signs of inflammation, misalignment, teeth grinding, and jaw clenching. Digital dental imaging may also be performed to identify underlying causes that could help us decide your treatment method. Treatment options include oral appliances (mouth or night guards), bite adjustment, orthodontics, or dental restorations (such as crowns or bridges). Dr. Elias can also recommend ways to relieve pain and other issues at home. It is important to attend any follow-up appointments so Dr. Elias can evaluate the progress of your treatment plan.

I took my daughter in for a consult regarding getting her wisdom teeth removed. Everyone was very nice and explained everything in detail. Dr. Pouya is very nice and explained the whole process to us from beginning to end. They were nice enough to schedule her surgery the following week since I wanted her to recover before she went back to school. I am very pleased with the whole office and how well the surgery went. I will definitely recommend Dr. Pouya to anyone needed their wisdom teeth removed.

Fantastic experience start to finish. I had Asian Rhinoplasty by Dr Elias and can not be happier. I love my nose so much, I get compliments from my friends about how cute and how it fits my face well.

I had Silicone breast implants by Dr Elias, I went from flat to fab in under an hour, I love my new addition:)I came to Dr Elias as referral from a friend of mine who had hers done by him a few years ago and they still looked fantastic, so I decided to follow him on IG to see his work, it didn’t take long before I booked a consultation with him. He was thorough, knowledgeable and reasonably priced compared to other places I consulted with in the past. I’m extremely happy with my results, post op care was great, he saw me so many times to check the healing of my surgery. I can’t say enough about my results. I love ’em..

My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room.  Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
