“On top of ear aches, neck aches, and back pain, I couldn’t eat anything that I wanted… I noticed that it was just getting worse and worse…Thanks to Dr. McMillan I am totally symptom free and I am loving it.”

– Katie A

“I clench so hard that when I finally relax, the muscle swells and blocks off the eustachian tube in my right ear, and the ear cannot drain. The headache that is a result of this blockage is the worst pain I have ever encountered. Since the beginning of treatment, I have only experienced one of those headaches…”

– Paula O

“My jaw pain was so intense it was sensitive to touch and I couldn’t eat. I found a doctor who told me it was arthritis and uncorrectable. Little did I know that when I found Dr. McMillan, I’d found help and hope and a cure for my migraines…”
– Jennifer O

“If it were not for TMJ Therapy, I would likely be unable to maintain my health or career, because I would be using excessive amounts of pain killers that would not have cured the problem. I owe my life to TMJ Therapy…”
– Brian M

You have given my life back to me. I have a better understanding of my own body than I have ever had. I now understand correct posture, and the massages have made it possible for me to improve my posture. I don’t know where I would be without everybody at TMJ Therapy.

Thank You!!!

What symptoms brought you to see Dr. McMillan?

For several years, I had problems sleeping because it felt like my face was on a rock pillow. My jaw ached all the time, and every time I opened my mouth, my jaw would pop and crackle. One day, I was attending a band competition for my kids, and as I opened my mouth to take a bite of my sub sandwich, my jaw locked open. That was, to say the least, and embarrassing moment. My dentist told me, after X-rays, that I had TMJ and the only choice I had was surgery or “live with it”. He said it would continue to deteriorate until I wouldn’t be able to ear or talk. But he said the surgery would likely make it worse.

I found Dr. McMillan, an expert in the field, and I can’t believe the change. He explained in detail the whole problem and after fitting me with a custom appliance that I wear only at night, the improvement has been amazing. I had no problem adjusting to the appliance, and it is actually easier to sleep with it than without it.

I recommend anyone with TMJ problems to see Dr. McMillan. I came all the way from Florida, and it was well worth it.

What symptoms brought you to see Dr. McMillan?

Continuous, severe migraine headaches, dizziness, nausea, sore facial and jaw muscles, extreme pain, extreme wearing of teeth due to clenching, and grinding. I was desperate for relief of any kind. I had already seen 9 different doctors in 9 different fields! Nothing was working!

How do you feel your condition has improved?

Dramatically. I came here as a last ditch effort to try to find something to help me survive constant pain. My pain has lessened dramatically and I have also learned to change my lifestyle to prevent triggers to clenching.

Wonderful. Every person treated me with kindness and respect. I always met smiling faces. They cared about me and my medical issues. They were great to reschedule when I had problems getting to appointments.

Overall, how would you describe your experience at TMJ Therapy?

It works! I am so grateful I was told about TMJ Therapy and Dr. McMillan. I use my retainers everyday and I have to have my upper one to sleep. Without it, I feel the consequences right away.

Is there anything else you would like to let us know?

I am so happy that Dr. McMillan is here. I will continue to be a patient at his practice for as long as he is available. He, through his knowledge, skills and compassion has helped me to improve the quality of my life immensely and my ability to deal with pain and stress. Relief has brought me hope again!
