Veronica presented with facial pain and headaches that no one could discover the source of. Her neurologist was very thorough, even taking an MRI to rule out any vascular or neoplastic disorders. But, like the majority of neurologist, he had no training on how the jaw can refer pain all over the head and neck region. This is not something that is taught in medical school. Our intention is to look for the root cause or causes of someone’s issues.
Bill was really only aware that he sometimes would clench his teeth. He had no idea that that could be related to his jaw locking and tooth pain. Conservative therapy as well as an earnest desire to resolve his issues was all he needed to bring him back to normal.
Carole presented with snoring and witnessed apnea. She had no idea that that could be related to her fatigue and depression. A sleep study confirmed a very significant Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Oral Appliance Therapy gave her the opportunity to come back to who she really was, a positive, energetic, and bright Soul.
Dena was very self conscious about her jaw clicking, and really had no idea that the entire musculoskeletal system was all connected, including her jaw. By treating what the body had considered its greatest orthopedic concern, it allowed our referrals to treat her neck, back and sleep issues. The #1 cause of insomnia is pain (at 40% of the population of insomniacs).
Had Migraines for over twenty five years. The pain was so intense it actually woke her up from her sleep! Typically we see patients who go to sleep to reduce their migraines, but not in Gloria’s case. A diagnosis and custom treatment plan was made for her that brought her relief from her migraines within a few months.
Jill was a blessing to have in our practice. To me, she embodies the power of the Will. She was and is so willing to take ownership of the issues that she was presented with, and treat them, until she received the resolution she had so long wished for. As she mentions, it was not an overnight correction, but I have yet to meet someone that did not have more than one issue they were dealing with.
Kay is a delightful person that has a true passion for cooking and living life. She had to limit not only her diet because of her jaw pain, but also her passion for cooking because of chronic back pain and headaches. Within a few months she was able to eat and more importantly, cook as she did before.
Kevin’s main issues were jaw clicking and jaw locking with pain. His headaches had seemed to come on at times of day he had no idea could be related to the jaw and neck.
Kim had a long history of migraines and tinnitus and lower back pain. It was never considered that this constellation of symptoms may be related to her TMJ. By evaluating her symptoms and finding the root cause, she was able to have full resolution without the need for medication or surgery.
Lonna’s greatest issues were fatigue and depression. She was diagnosed with Sleep Apnea, and tried the CPAP. She couldn’t comply with it, tried as she did. She tried other oral appliances, and though very well intentioned, did not take in the whole person. We evaluated all the areas of blockage in her airway as well as her sleep clenching habits. She was able to tolerate the Oral Appliance we made for her.
Robert presented with very severe sleep apnea, that was partially caused by being overweight. He could not tolerate the CPAP, even though he really needed it. By treating the apnea correctly his migraines resolved almost immediately and he was able to loose weight effectively, to the tune of 80 lbs. in less than one year!!
Suffered with extreme fatigue, depression and a host of other issues, seeking help from a myriad of specialists. She was finally diagnosed correctly as having sleep apnea by her sleep specialist. She tried all kinds of masks for the CPAP, but could not tolerate any of them for any length of time. By treating the source of her issues, her life has turned around.

Was diagnosed with Sleep Apnea and could not tolerate his CPAP. In his comprehensive examination we discovered that he also had Tension Type Headaches as well Jaw pain, never realizing that they could all be related. By designing and executing a custom made treatment plan that focused on his individual needs and issues, he no longer has headaches or jaw pain, and even his blood pressure has reduced significantly!

Had Tension Type headaches for two years, and ear pain. The pain was so intense she would have to stay in bed for over a day each time. We discovered the underlying structural problems as well as food triggers that she stayed away from, and has seen the results for herself.
Originally came in as a Snoring and Sleep Apnea patient who could not tolerate the CPAP. She had started therapy with another dentist for her Sleep issues, but was unhappy with her overall results. Her issues were treated by making an accurate diagnosis and treating the whole person, and she now benefits from being pain free, as well as no longer snoring, or having sleep apnea.
Had Jaw and ear pain, as well as movement ticks. Her neck pain and jaw locking was overlooked ever since she was a teenager. She was either told that she had nothing wrong with her, or that she needed jaw/facial surgery She now benefits from a resolution to all her symptoms with no surgery and NO medications.
