Non-Surgical TMJ

Dear Patients,

The children are back in school, the leaves are changing, and the Cleveland Browns are winless. What a beautiful time of the year to live in our wonderful city.

In the last 26 years of practice I have seen and treated many TMJ dysfunction patients. My philosophy has always been conservative non-surgical therapy. I have come to understand the intricacy of this joint does not lend well to surgical intervention. My treatment is evidence based and is highly effective. Recently a patient came to me after a consultation with a maxillofacial surgeon stating that he was advising surgery. My response was that the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons recommend that all forms of non-surgical therapy should be attempted before any surgery is advised. Her response was that her insurance would only pay for the surgical treatment. In situations as this I recommend my patients petition their insurance provider as this goes against the best interest of the patient.

Should you or someone you live have a TMJ problem please contact our office for a complimentary consultation
