Neuromuscular TMJ Patient Testimonial

TMJ Michigan Testimonial“Dr. Mulder – I want to express my appreciation to you and your team for the personal and professional care I have received over the past 6 months. The treatment I have received has made a significant difference to my health and well-being. I have known for many years, having been told by 5 other dentists in E. Lansing, Chicago, & Los Angeles, that I clench my jaw and grind my teeth. No one has offered a solution to this problem, which has lead to upper and lower jaw pain as well as neck and shoulder pain. When I moved to Grand Rapids in July 2006 I was referred to you by a friend who has been a patient of yours for over 20 years when looking for a dentist.

At my first checkup and cleaning you suggested that I spend some time with you consulting about my dental problem, which was immediately evident to your training. You took the time to completely explain TMJ what and how it affects one and then a treatment plan. I must admit I was a bit skeptical but decided to try your approach. The TENS treatment was not at all uncomfortable and relaxed my jaw muscles such that bite molds could be taken with the jaw in the proper position. Then a split was made for me to wear to help reposition my jaw.tmj specialist patient review

In less than three months of using the splint with regular 2- 3 week review and adjustment of the muscles in my jaw have readjusted and now I only wear the splint while sleeping. The jaw pain is gone and the neck and shoulder pain has diminished. That won’t go away completely because I have degenerative disks in my neck but I can definitely tell a difference. All of this accomplished without the use of medications, which is important to me.

I look forward to continued treatment and correction of the issues to my teeth from the clenching and grinding over the years, which has ruined a number of teeth. I look forward to feeling confident to having a nice smile and strong teeth.

– Thank you, Tom from Grand Rapids, Michigan

TMJ Pain and Symptoms

TMJ encompasses many jaw misalignment problems that can cause a laundry list of TMJ symptoms and lead to tooth loss and bone deterioration. Years of worldwide research resulting in breakthrough treatments has helped TMJ get the attention it deserves.

5 star review“I discovered I had TMJ in 1987. I was grinding my teeth at night while sleeping. I also was experiencing jaw pain, migraines, clicking and locking of my jaw as a result of my TMJ. I had surgery in 1988 to alleviate the pain. In 2000 I was able to receive a jaw reconstructive surgery. The surgery was a huge success until 2014 when I started having pain, migraines and could not chew my food. I went to see Dr. Mulder who began treating me with therapy and a neuromuscular orthotic designed to realign my jaw. I immediately felt relief and after the 2nd treatment I could enjoy chewing food again! His treatment is working and I feel so much better. Thank you Jerry and your entire team for returning the pleasure of eating food back into my life and relieving me of all the jaw pain I was feeling.” – by Lupe S.
 
5 star review“I had some serious TMJ problems which, because of unusual spinal problems, promised to get more serious–something, I assure you, I did not want. Both my splint (worn at night) and my orthotic partial work perfectly to keep my jaw aligned regardless of my spinal condition.. This is great because I still have more spinal issues to get through (and am working hard on them). So the dental science is really good. And everyone here is top notch – spirited, friendly, timely, available, and open to questions” – Sandra W.

I finally called Dr. Mulder because he had the experience and knowledge I needed. Finally, I had an answer, it was TMJ. He did several tests and had a neuromuscular orthotic made for me. My jaw pain and irritation is gone. I feel great now! I’m so thankful he could and did solve my issues!” – by Charles W.

5 star review“During the making of my bite, assistants were handling most of the job and I wondered if it would be any different than the other 2 bites that were made special for my TMJ . Came back for final fitting and using for next month. Results were amazing, my bite fit like a glove and after a few weeks it had already made a difference in relaxing my jaws.” – Donna A.

5 star review“I had severe pain in the left side lower jaw for about 4 years. It was bad enough that in order to eat I would have to take numerous pain pills. I went to my family doctor when it first started & over the next 4 years was sent to a couple of ENT’s who gave me pills to stop the pain, but didn’t work, I didn’t know what to do, then when I had my yearly appointment with my sleep apnea doctor, I mentioned the jaw pain I have & he told about Dr, Jerry Mulder, who he sometimes refers people to have appliances made & the rests is history. Since my first visit, which answered all my questions, I was fitted for a lower splint, the pain has been diminished . now I can eat normal without any pain pills. This is a total relief. I feel much better now. I would recommend Dr Mulder to anyone who has TMJ issues.” – Patrick K.
 
5 star review“My entire family sees Dr. Mulder, we love him and his entire staff! Not only do we have fabulous, healthy smiles, but Dr. Mulder has also helped us with special appliances for TMJ and sleep apnea. I will continue to recommend him to everyone I know!” – Natalie M.
 
5 star review“My specific case of TMJ was very difficult to treat. Years of my jaw being in the wrong position took its toll on me. Dr. Mulder was persistent in my treatment and my symptoms have drastically improved.” – Kristin V.
