TMJ specialist in Oregon or Washington state
I just moved to Portland from the UK where I had a very good TMJ specialist. Now that I'm in Portland I'm looking for someone here to carry on my treatment or treatment that I feel comfortable with.
My dentist in the UK put me in a splint and successfully repositioned my jaw so that I was basically symptom free. I visited a dentist in the area just for a regular checkup, not for treatment of my TMJ disorder, and she was quite adamant that the treatment I received from the UK dentist will likely only lead to perhaps different but equally troubling problems like arthritis long-term, and she gave me the name of an oral surgeon that she highly recommends.
I'm reluctant to go down that route for obvious reasons so I wanted to know if anyone has had positive results with a specialist in Oregon or Washington? I'm very happy to travel a bit for someone who's good so it's absolutely not important if they're not actually in Portland.
