Patients who suffer from dental joint problems are very poorly understood by the wider dental community, and are very often passed from pillar to post with no real treatment and continued suffering. The symptoms people can suffer from include some or all of the following
• Painful clicking joints
• Worn front teeth
• Back ache, neck ache and regular headaches
• Broken and chipped teeth
• Pain on eating and chewing
• Loose dentures
It was probably because I had dental treatment that actually lead to me suffering some of the above symptoms in 1998 that I became very interested in the subject. I have since completed numerous post graduate courses and have successfully treated lots of similar patients, stopping all the pain they have previously suffered, when no other health care professional has been able to help them.
