TMJ Treatment Review - Bonita Springs, FL

TMJ - Raymond

Dr Eck Bonita Springs FLRaymond Shares His Experience With TMJ

What Brought You Into Bonita Dental Care?

I convinced myself that the reason I had those headaches was because there was a hairline fracture in one of my teeth, because no doctor could find anything else. Other than putting me on meds that made me drowsy, it wasn’t really curing anything. So I was in here having a cavity fixed and I mentioned to him, “Listen, could you take a really good look, because I swear I have a hairline fracture. I can’t think of anything that could cause that kind of pain.” And he kind of looked at me and said okay.

How Did You Feel After Your TMJ Treatment?

I walked out of here and never had another headache. He rescheduled me a week later, did some fine-tuning and a month later did a little more fine-tuning, but I never had those headaches again.

What Did Doctor Eck Find?

He checked them out and said, “I don’t see a hairline fracture, but I think I know what your problem is.” And I said, “Good, because if you do, you’re the only one that does.” And he says, “Let’s take an impression, let’s take a mold.” He says, “You’ve got TMJ.” And I said, “what the heck is TMJ?” He says, “the reason I know you have TMJ is because I had TMJ.”They just ground down all the teeth and it maybe took an hour and a half. He brought the carbon paper in and said, “bite down on this, grind a little bit, we’ll take a little bit more off.”
