The only one I'm aware of in Toronto is Dr. Sigesmund. He is also listed on the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain website. I see a specialist in London (Dr. Rondeau) who apparently uses the same type of treatment as Dr. Sigesmund. He may be worth contacting. If you do contact him, please let me know how it goes.
Thanks for the response. I've looked online for a website for Dr. Sigesmund. He doesn't appear to have one although I've found his phone number and will likely give his office a call next week.
I also looked online at Dr. Rondeau, although London is really farther than I want to travel. I'm sure he's a good doctor, but thought I mention to you that most of the websites relating to him list seminars, etc. he gives about how to bill and make lots of money.
Has he been helping you? I'm just starting to become familiar with TMJ problems, but it seems most people need to go back to their dentists very regularly for adjustments. Is this the case?
I'll let you know what happens if I see Dr. Sigesmond.
I've done quite a bit of research on Dr. Sigesmund and have thought about contacting him myself.
I've been seeing Dr. Rondeau for about a year, and have received a small amount of relief. I do think I'm an exception though. Marlene, who also frequents these boards, went to Dr. Rondeau and had great results. You're right though, Dr. Rondeau has started concentrating his time on teaching other dentists how to make money by treating TMJD. If it wasn't for his assistant who deals with me most of the time I probably would've switched dentists long ago.
Yes, once you begin splint therapy you'll need to go back at least monthly for regular adjustments.
Again, I don't know anyone who has seen Dr. Sigesmund, but I would really like to know how you make out if you do contact him.
