For many years my jaw has often cracked and popped when I ate. As I get older it is doing this more and more. Sometimes, now, it even feels like I have lockjaw. The only solution I’ve ever been given is to break and reset my jaw. Recently I came across your website and started [...]

I have always had problems with my jaw popping and cracking. Recently, it has gotten significantly worse and occasionally feels like I have lock-jaw.

I’ve seen three different doctors in the practice I go to, and they’ve each tried something different, and nothing has worked. Now [...]

Although I just turned 60 yesterday, up until last week I still had all of my wisdom teeth. The fillings in the top two were broken. My dentist said it would actually be easier to remove the teeth than it would be to repair the fillings, so I went ahead and had them pulled. The [...]

I found this blog because I was looking for information about TMJ. I could really use some expert advice, and unlike some of the dentists I have dealt with in the past, your credentials seem impeccable.
Even though I am only in my early thirties, my teeth are a mess. I have a long-standing teeth grinding [...]
