Hi there, my experience with the Mayo Clinic and TMJ has been a blessing! I have dealt with the chronic pain of TMD/TMJ for the past 29 years and tried just about every therapy possible. I have worn a splint for the better part of those 29 years – I still do – because I am a constant gritter and grinder but since the surgery at the clinic I have noticed my grinding has decreased along with the pain levels. Although I still have pain, it is not because of the surgery and it is absolutely no where near what I was experiencing before my visit and treatment to the clinic in Rochester about a year and half ago.I highly recommend the clinic, they are professional, kind and empathic. I hope you find some relief too.
