The following are samples of some of our patients who have graciously written about their treatment and experience. Most of these patients presented in extreme pain and sought treatment for their symptoms.
"When I first came to see Dr.Grabavoy I could only open my mouth 19mm!! that is less then 1 inch!! After my first month of treatment my constant pain was no longer constant. By 3 months I did not have pain at all :)"
— Alexandra L.
"The pain that I was experiencing was causing a lot of problems both at work and at home. I thought that it was something I was just going to have to live with and power through. Due to another underlining condition it seemed like the TMJ pain would be something that would never disappear. On my first visit those fears were put away. Dr.Grabavoy and his excellent team made me feel so comfortable about what I was experiencing and demonstrated a deep knowledge and confidence that was extremely helpful to me. I am so glad for all the help that I received and incredibly thankful for all of their hard work in helping me feel normal again."
— Kevin K.
"When I came to Dr.Grabavoy's office I could not even open my mouth wide enough to eat a sandwich; and after one month in splint therapy, my bite had already doubled and my jaw felt more balanced. Now that i'm done with my treatments I feel like a new person because I'm pain free and my bite/jaw feels great!! Thanks to Dr.Grabavoy and his wonderful staff!"
— Amanda G.
"I'm so happy I found Dr.Grabavoy to fix my jaw. It used to hurt just to do everyday tasks like eat and brush my teeth. Now, I can barely remember what it is like to have the pain!!"
— Alyssa M.
"When I first came to Dr.Grabavoy my jaw popped whenever I talked or ate. My jaw would get locked when I opened my mouth and it hurt so bad once I cried. Within the first week of treatment my jaw felt much better and didn't pop as much. After a month or so the popping and locking stopped completely."
— Kylie B.
"I can't possibly thank Dr.Grabavoy and his team enough for the outstanding care they provided while I was going through TMJ treatment. The process was long, but in the end well worth it. When I came in to see Dr.Grabavoy, I was having issues of vertigo, severe pain in the left side of my jaw that radiated to my ear and back of my head. After a visit to the ear nose and throat(ENT) doctor and then several visits to my regular dentist, who fitted me for a night guard, I soon realized that the problem was still not resolved. That's when I 'Googled' TMJ Specialists and came across Dr.Grabavoy. He literally walks you through every part of the examination process from beginning to end. Dr Grabavoy is also the most knowledgeable dentist I think I have ever met and he and his team are excellent to work with. My process is now complete and will use his practice for my regular dental needs going forward as well."
— Piper K.
"Dr.Grabavoy and all of his staff are some of the nicest people I've ever met. When I walk in the door they are all smiles until I walk out. I went through splint therapy and it was the best thing ever. The relief was almost instantaneous and it wasn't just temporary. I no longer hear clicking everytime I open my mouth, and the headaches have subsided immensely, would recommend 10/10."
"I wasn't sure what to expect when I first came to Dr.Grabavoy. I was hoping for some relief of the constant aching in my jaw. The results have exceeded my expectations. I am pain free. The staff is incredibly courteous. I highly recommend giving Dr.Grabavoy and his staff the opportunity to ease your pain."
— Tom S.
"I am so grateful that my dentist referred me to Dr.Grabavoy last year after I nearly destroyed a night guard in just six months. The quality of my life has improved greatly. I had a headache nearly every day of my life. Many of them were migraines. Now, I've been migraine free for at least six months. The headaches I have now are caused from stress, not TMJ, and they are not nearly as intense. Today I went in to get my teeth cleaned. That used to be torture. Holding my mouth open wide for so long was horrible before. I was in pain the whole time and my jaw would be sore for days. Sometimes I had to take a break before they could finish up. This time, it seemed like I just got there and the cleaning was done! My jaw didn't hurt or lock up even once. It's so nice to be able to move my jaw without pain or clicking. I thank the whole staff here for taking the time to explain things to me and encourage me through this process. I came in fearful of what barbaric treatment would be suggested. Instead, I have been pleasantly surprised by how simple and easy it was. I wish I had known about it years ago."
— Amy R.
"I am very thankful for Dr. Grabavoy and staff for providing help to TMJ. I see this as a great blessing because it was able to stop any future pain that would hinder my daily life. So worth it!"
— Kaitlyn G.
"When I first came here, I was in really bad shape. I couldn't keep my mouth open (if it wasn't locked up) and keeping it closed hurt just as bad. I had been to four different doctors and no one helped. In fact, it made things worse. After getting my splint, I immediately felt better! My relapse was a struggle but getting through that made a difference. Halfway through my treatment, Doctor came across a growth on my jawline. Within 48 hours, I had a biopsy and a CAT-scan. The way he handled everything was so fast and I was so grateful for that. He really does care about his patients. I can now go without the splint and go without pain!"
— Victoria F.
"I have had severe ear issues/pain for more than 20yrs. I had seen multiple ENT's and even had tubes put in as an adult to try and alleviate the pain and pressure. Finally about 2 years ago, I saw an ENT that really wanted to help. However, he began diagnosing me with Miniere's. That just didn't fit with me. He also said he believed I had TMJD and said I should find a specialist. Now, a little more then a year later, my hearing is back to normal, the pressure is mostly gone, and I feel better than I have in a long time. It's been a journey and I never expected 100% back to normal. I would say it is 80%, and I am extremely happy with that. Ultimately, I feel 200x better than I did two years ago and that's all that matters! Thanks Dr. Grabavoy and staff! You changed my life!"
— Sherry K.
"At first I was dealing with a great amount of jaw pain and ear aches. Now it is at least 93% better. It was definitely worth going through the split therapy."
