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.
"I've had TMJ for years and in 2014 my jaw locked tight. I was referred to Dr. Grabavoy and began splint therapy. One has to be diligent, but at the completion of therapy I am now pain-free and my bite is aligned for the first time in many, many years. I am grateful to Dr. Grabavoy and his knowledgeable, caring staff. I would whole-heartedly recommend the services of TMJ & Facial Pain Center."

"I was referred to Dr. Grabavoy by my general practitioner. When I first came to his office I could barely open my jaw. He helped me tremendously. I am back to 100%. He and his office staff are very professional. I would highly recommend him to anyone with TMJ issues."
— Caroline S.
"I have always known something wasn't right with my jaw but I never did anything about it. I self-medicated my facial pain, neck pain and fluid retention in my ears with sinus meds that gave me a temporary fix to symptoms. 2012 I had extensive dental work that caused nonstop pain. I finally came to Dr. Grabavoy to investigate my issues and symptoms and discovered I was Stage “5” TMJ. OMG! Since I got my splint I have had a huge change in life. I do not have sinus problems and no longer take un-needed meds. I claim a healing! Thank you Dr. Grabavoy."

"I have suffered with TMJD for over 12 years. I saw specialists when I was very young and had no success. The only way I could sleep at night was by taking Tylenol with codeine. After a year of splint therapy with Dr. Grabavoy I am virtually pain free. I can sleep better and no longer rely on prescriptions. This treatment truly changed my life. Driving for an hour to my appointments and the total cost was definitely worth it. I highly recommend Dr. Grabavoy and the entire staff at the TMJ & Facial Pain Treatment Center."

"In January 2012 I began to develop an aggravating case of tinnitus. Within a few months neck pain, jaw cramping and headaches began to follow. After seeking numerous treatments through my primary care physician, as well as specialist, I found Dr. Grabavoy on the Internet. He diagnosed my ailment as displaced TMJ discs. Dr. Grabavoy was very thorough in explaining the ailment…as well as a potential treatment. I was then fitted for a 24hour bite appliance to reposition my discs. He was very professional and patient in taking time to listen to (and address) my concerns. My neck and jaw pain gradually began to diminish, to nearly the point of non-existence. I would highly recommend that anyone who may think they have problems with their jaw or TMJ come in and see Dr. Grabavoy."

When I came to see Dr. Grabavoy I was in daily pain and I could not fully open my mouth. I very much felt like my jaw needed to rest but I was never able to get it to a relaxed position. With the splint therapy I was able to rest my jaw! Over time I began to experience a decrease in pain and I was able to fully open my mouth again. When it came time that my pain was gone and my jaw was ready to have my splint removed I was afraid to let it go! The only thing that convinced me to let it go was my trust in Dr. Grabavoy. He has been wonderful explaining the process and guiding my treatment every step of the way. He talked me through my anxiety and of course he was proven correct. The nightguard that he made is doing a great job keeping my jaw pain free. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Grabavoy and splint therapy to anyone struggling with TMJ. A most sincere Thank You to Dr. Grabavoy and his terrific staff!

Dr. Grabavoy and the entire staff made a huge difference in my life! To go from having headaches on a daily basis to never is a miracle. To be able to eat a sub sandwich is huge! It was so worth the time and monetary investment. I never realized how much pain I had been in until I wasn't in any. Thank you!
— Lauren D.
Before my splint I had a lot of discomfort in my jaw – popping, clicking and migraines. Since I've had my splint the discomfort is gone and so are my headaches. I would highly recommend splint therapy to anyone suffering with TMJD. It's so helpful. It's a great feeling to not be in pain anymore.
— Kristen D.
I was in a car accident and shortly after began to have jaw pain and trouble with my jaw moving properly. I was able to get this problem corrected with treatment at Dr. Grabavoy's. I no longer have jaw pain. The staff and Dr. focused on getting me better and I am thankful I came here for treatment!
— Lisa A.
I started coming to Dr. Grabavoy in 2002 because I had been in an accident. Hitting my face on the steering wheel put my jaw out of alignment and Dr. Grabavoy was able to help me immensely by adjusting a nightguard gradually until the problem was corrected. The staff here is very helpful and understanding and professional. Now my annual visits help keep me well!

I became a patient of Dr. Grabavoy early in 2009. At the time, my jaw was causing me much pain. I was taking over 10 over the counter pain-killers in order to decrease my discomfort. The pain was intense every other day. The pain I had was life changing. I decided to make a consultation appointment with Dr. Grabavoy.
Dr. Grabavoy is very knowledgeable and passionate in the fields of dentistry and TMJ. I felt very comfortable with his projected treatment. Within days of being fitted with the first TMJ splint, I was 99 percent pain free. My experience with Dr. Grabavoy techniques, bedside manner, and treatment exceeded my expectations. His dental assistants and office staff are also friendly, personable, and well informed. My needs were always met by the entire staff. At this time, I am happy to say I am pain free and comfortable again. I would highly recommend Dr. Grabavoy's office for TMJ and dental help.

After months of bi-weekly facial massages, chiropractor visits, and treatment from an orthodontist for the unbearable symptoms of my TMJ, I still was not feeling any long-term relief. My daily headaches, facial pain and neck pain were intensifying and I was afraid that there wasn't going to be anyone to help me. A friend of mine told me about her sister who had severe TMJ. She highly recommended Dr. Grabavoy, even stating that he had changed her sister's life. Even though this sounded hopeful, I was still skeptical considering the bad treatment experiences I recently had. I decided that I would call Dr. Grabavoy's office hoping to speak to him about my TMJ, before driving 1 1/2 hours to his office for a consultation. After speaking with him on the phone, I got a great feeling and decided to come in. That was the best decision I could have ever made. I am so happy that I can honestly say that those TMJ symptoms I came in with are no longer. I am so thankful for finding Dr. Grabavoy when I did. Dr. Grabavoy and the staff are very knowledgeable about the disorder and have been so friendly and helpful. The Phase I treatment was painless and I could not be happier with the result.
