All of these people, male and female ages 7 to 70, suffered from temporomandibular disorders (TMD). All of these people had a condition, which involved some dysfunction in the jaw functional system involving the jaw joints (TMJ), the nerves/muscles associated with jaw function and the way in which the teeth fit together. All of these people were helped by a conservative treatment that improved the working interrelationship among all of these systems. Their treatment involved relaxing their facial muscles and changing their dental occlusion, thereby eliminating a cause of their illness, rather than only treating the symptoms.
Note: People with the various symptoms similar to those described above may not have a temporomandibular disorder or may have TMJ / TMD plus other illnesses. Proper evaluation is necessary to determine whether TMJ / TMD can be a possible cause. While these are the stories of many of patients who were treated successfully, it does not imply that all patients with TMJ / TMD experience resolution of their problems through the treatment described here.
