I used a fonominal oral maxilofacial surgeon named Dr David Hoffman in Staten Island NY. I had 5 unsuccessful jaw arthroscopies and lots of issues with my TMJ until I found Dr Hoffman he takes care of everything from wisdom teeth to complete facial reconstruction the man is amazing.
He's really wonderful and has been specializing in TMJ/maxillo-facial realated problems for decades. The surgery he did on me was one of the newest and least-invasive surgeries available. That was over a year and half ago and I'm still at nearly pre-TMJD status. He is also very honest and won't give anyone a run-around or perform any procedure that he doesn't believe necessary or won't have a reasonable chance of success.
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.
