TMJ Success Stories

TMJ Success Stories

As a TMJ treatment Dentist with over 30 years of experience in practicing dentistry, I have had the privilege of treating many patients with TMJ disorder with a high degree of success in reducing and even eliminating pain completely with MAGO Therapy, a proven treatment approach that I use at my dental practice in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.

MAGO is an acronym for Maxillary, Anterior, Guided, Orthotic. If you or someone you care about has TMJ and you’re searching for relief from pain and symptoms, I urge you to consider the advanced treatment option called MAGO Therapy. This non-surgical, non-invasive therapeutic approach is one of the single most effective and proven methods for providing long-term TMD relief.

I completely understand how suffering from TMJ & facial pain can get in the way of being able to properly function during your day. When you are in pain, it is difficult to think about anything else. But can you even imagine what it must have been like for my patient Jane Youngberg, who says she struggled for over 40-years with headaches, jaw pain, molar pain, neck pain, and back pain before we met and put her on a successful treatment plan that finally changed her life. Here’s a spotlight on Jane’s case followed by three more patients, all of which came to me in a state of frustration and hopelessness.

About Jane Youngberg’s TMJ case:
For 40 years Jane struggled with TMJ pain, she saw neurologists for headaches, had MRIs for neck and back pain, asked multiple dentists about tooth pain; they all said that nothing was wrong, except that she grinds her teeth. She even had one dentist tell her she had psychological problems. Jane shares how she can now sleep through the night, she’s able to chew on both sides of her mouth and can easily turn her head in both directions.

About Jamie’s TMJ case:
Jamie experienced a decrease in TMJ pain in just 1 week of working with me. Her jaw was always sore, she had severe neck pain and was on a liquid diet. Now, after just 1 week of MAGO therapy, she is eating soft food, her jaw is not locking up anymore and the tightness in her neck and jaw is virtually gone.

About Cheryl’s TMJ case:
Cheryl now has a significant decrease in headache pain and jaw pain as a result of MAGO Therapy. Cheryl spent 5 months in treatment and was able to begin working with me to stabilize her jaw with BioRejuvenation dentistry using Bioesthetic principles.

About Glenn Bellman’s TMJ case:
Imagine feeling completing hopeless about your TMJ condition after seeing 12 medical practitioners and you are still unable to have pain relief from this terrible debilitating condition. Seems unimaginable, right? Well, it happened to one of my patients, Glenn Bellman and I had the privilege of being the final practitioner that was able to help get him restored, pain free, and back to enjoying life again. When I think of all the patient’s I’ve had the privilege to work with over the years, this patient’s story in particular reminds me almost daily, as to why I became a Dentist and why I am so passionately focused on TMJ diagnosis and treatment to help people get their lives back.

Glenn was able to experience an incredible transformation and after almost three years of unbearable pain, restricted breathing, difficulty swallowing, and tingling in the arms and torso, was finally able to find relief and return to living a normal, healthy life as a result of my TMJ treatment protocol. The 12 medical practitioners my patient saw with no success, included a Periodontist, 2 Oral Surgeons, Endodontist, Chiropractor, Ear, Nose & Throat Doctor, Neurologist, A Facial Pain Specialist, Message Therapist, Acupuncturist, and a Hypnotist.

Don’t just take my word for it, you can hear directly from these four patients on their case and success stories.
