Dr. Grabavoy's Personal TMJ Story

While studying for my doctorate in dental school, I took classes on TMJ and discovered that headaches, jaw pain, popping and clicking, earaches, limited mouth opening, and facial pain can all be symptoms of TMJ. While in these classes, I remembered that as a young child I loved to ride my bicycle really fast down hills. It was exciting to move very quickly and feel the wind on my face. However, I didn’t take into account the uneven pavement. At 6 and 12 years of age I fell and had direct trauma to my chin, which resulted in a very limited mouth opening and loud joint sounds.

Over the years, I would experience periods of pain and dysfunction, which could not be solved by any doctor: D.D.S. or M.D. Taking these classes helped me realize the cause of my symptoms and that I could solve the problem with TMJ treatment. I advanced my training in TMJ and established the TMJ & Facial Pain Treatment Center, which focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of those symptoms as they relate to TMJ. Not only do I have a personal connection, but also I have treated thousands of patients with these problems.
