For several months my right side of my jaw would pop every time I chewed something.
One day the popping stopped and I was so relieved. However only to have it come back a few days later with extreme pain on the left side.
I could not even open my mouth wide enough to eat a sandwich or open half an inch at that.
I immediately started looking for a dentist in my area to see. I contacted Manvel Dental and Implant center and made an appointment to see Dr. Collins.
I was able to get an appointment quickly. I explained to Dr. Collins about the extreme pain I was experiencing and that it felt like I was being socked in the face really hard in my jaw.
I was educated on TMD (temporomandibular disorder) which causes pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement.
Dr. Collins extensively talked to me about how he can possibly relieve me of pain with Platelet Rich Therapy. Since I wanted relief NOW I agreed to do it.
After I was given the therapy within 30 minutes or so I could open my mouth a bit more and the pain was gone. However, the pain came back about 10 days later.
Dr. Collins advised me that it could take up to 3 treatment of therapy to resolve the issue.
I just completed my second session and I am able to open my jaw even further. I am ecstatic at the progress I am getting with this therapy.
My jaw movement has improved and the pain is very minimal.
I have scheduled my third session of therapy and love being part of a new medical breakthrough that I believe can help so many people with a variety of jaw problems.
I want to personally thank Dr. Collins and his team for helping me to resolve my TMD jaw pain.
I edited this since I had the terminology wrong.
