“TMJ became a problem for me in 2014, when I woke up one morning, yawning. That’s when my jaw started cracking loudly every time I opened it beyond normal talking, and only became worse over the next 4 years. In the first months I experienced dizziness and ringing in my ears. Those symptoms subsided only for headaches, tension in my muscles and difficulty chewing/opening my mouth to take their place. The doctor at my college recommended muscle relaxers, my primary care provider offered little in the way of advice. So, 4 years later, I took to the internet, that’s how I found Dr. Oshetski.
As a financially independent undergraduate, I knew that treatment would be costly for my limited means, but I was determined to start addressing the problem as it was noticeably worsening. Dr. Oshetski and his entire office were professional, welcoming and accommodating.
I was required to have my wisdom teeth out, and after hearing so many horror stories leading up to my extractions, I was nervous to (only) be sedated. As it turned out, I had nothing to fear, all went well and I experienced no pain during or after surgery.
I had 3 DTR adjustments, which have significantly reduced my cracking and popping. I no longer have trouble chewing, talking, kissing, or brushing my teeth. My headaches have nearly disappeared. I was able to witness how my muscles spasmed prior to DTR treatment and how, after my final appointment, my mouth was finally functioning properly again.
I recommend Dr. Oshetski to anyone seeking dental care of any kind. I’ve never had a better dentist, and I don’t plan on going anywhere else. It’s a beautiful office with a caring staff. If you suffer from TMJ/D, I would start with a consultation and go from there!”
