Time and time again, we have patients that come to us after years of suffering with symptoms like headaches, jaw pain and constant fatigue attributed to TMJ disorder. It broke our hearts to hear how one of our patients had to miss work, special occasions and life in general due to the pain.

She exclaims, “I went to bed with a headache, woke up with a headache and had constant headaches at work.”

On the suggestion she should see a TMJ specialist, the patient contacted our practice for an appointment. At her first visit, Dr. Klauer gave her a temporary mouth guard and recommended she an ENT for evaluation for sleep apnea.

Along with headaches, some of the other symptoms of TMJ include:

  • Jaw pain or clicking and popping of the jaw
  • Teeth clenching, grinding and gnashing
  • Facial, eye and neck pain
  • Pain with chewing

When patients have symptoms like these, they are not sure if they should go to their regular doctor or see a specialist. Once they are diagnosed, however, we can usually provide them with some immediate relief.

When you come to us with TMJ symptoms, you’ll go through a thorough evaluation so we can customize a treatment plant that is right for you. We provide non-surgical solutions such as:

  • Decompression appliance therapy
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Physical therapy treatments
  • Referral coordination with other specialists

This patient is the perfect example of how TMJ treatments can be life altering. In fact, she even told us that thanks to our team she will be able to celebrate her birthday headache free this year. A happy birthday it is indeed!

Listen to how she describes the difference TMJ treatments have made in her life.
