i have , .had tmj for 23 yrs. i have been to many different DRS. thru the yrs. with no help. i have finally found a wonderful, caring DR. He is the only Dentist in the U.S. that holds a PH.D in his field. He only treats TMJ sufferers.He is a Godsend. i thought i would have to live with this horrible pain for the rest of my life.His name is DR. Ira Klemons, in South Amboy, N.J. i can't say enough great things about him.
This was the best doctor I have ever seen for anything. He was kind, considerate, (not too expensive!) and thorough. I walked away from his appointments with the feeling that I was healing just from speaking to him. I'll never forget how he helped me manage my stress, and get a working splint to ease my pain. A true gentleman, with a great sense of humor!
Dr. David Lerner, Fishkill, NY - he actually had this condition when he was younger himself.
My problem was that I had my lower jaw mis-aligned due to the mal-practice of other dentists who didn't know what they were doing, and who charged me $$$ to make the mis-alignment more permanent by guesswork ortho and restorations.
He has helped me greatly in accuratly diagnosing and reversing this work.
note: Dr. Lerner has just moved to a town further south, Peekskill NY I believe, near the REMOVED, and he is right off the REMOVED.
