TMJ / TMD

Return to Case History

Rachel

Rachel is a registered nurse at a Kansas City area hospital. One of her many TMD symptoms was unresolved constant ear pain. Rachel has had TMJ surgery several years ago that failed to resolve her symptoms. Rachel had orthotic therapy to correct her bite and solve all of her symptoms. She is now in Phase 2 stabilization treatment with braces.

Rachel writes:

I was having jaw pain, ear pain and it felt like my jaw was locked open. My family doctor told me to go to a dentist. My dentist told me to see a specialist. Today, I am so much better. I can open and close my mouth without pain. I eat without pain. I sleep without pain. Thanks, Dr. Raman. I can say 99% better.
