A Very Special TMD Testimonial – How Jaw Alignment, Bridges and Crowns Helped Florence Eliminate Her Headaches
Below is a video testimonial from a happy patient who was treated by Dr Saidi. Her quality of life has improved, and she no longer suffers from TMD headaches.
“My life has improved because of no headaches and my teeth are easier to manage.”
Florence’s misaligned jaws affected her temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and caused painful chronic headaches. After her initial consultation, Dr Masoud Saidi created a treatment plan which included jaw realignment with a removable occlusal appliance and bite adjustments to treat Florence’s misalignment.
After successful jaw alignment to correct misaligned teeth, Dr Saidi prepared crowns and bridges to replace Florence’s failing restorations and preserve the new alignment of her jaws.
Florence no longer experiences any headaches and has seen improvement in her speaking/chewing abilities. Flo has been a patient of Dr Saidi for over 17 years.
If you’re suffering from chronic headaches, you may be experiencing the effects of Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) or a malocclusion (a bad bite).
