I Googled TMJ, You Got Me Out of Pain & Changed My Life

Dear Dr. Moreau,

I really wanted to tell you how much you've changed my life. I know we joke in your office, but your wisdom/knowledge/expertise is absolutely phenomenal!

I remember the day I "googled" you in my classroom. I was literally sitting in front of 28 teenagers crying because of the pain. I know I was a WRECK when I first went to your office. I bet you wished your name didn't come up first when I googled TMJ. I was pretty much a pain in the *** calling your office every single day! I'm sure Jessica dreaded answering the phone some days. But, you hung in there with me, and thank God that you did.

I love that your immediate goal was to get me out of pain. This orthotic has changed my life. I meant it when I said I freaked out the day I lost the orthotic! I tell everyone who mentions TMJ about you and have posted it all over my Facebook.

...also I can't begin to say enough about your staff. As NUTS as I was in the beginning, they didn't hold it against me.

Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for listening, believing and helping. You're a great listener and it really meant a lot when you understood. You're my hero!

Sincerely,
Your 29-year-old googling pain-free smiling patient,
Aimee

Patient Happy With New Dentures + Headaches Gone


In this case, this patient's "old" dentures (left) were made in 2007...not that long ago. She reported having difficulty eating food because her teeth touched unevenly all the way around. You can also see here that the teeth are all flat and have no definition where the teeth transition to gumline. Additionally, the patient reported having headaches several times each week. This was due to her uneven bite.
The "new" denture we made her (right) has good occlusion - the way the upper and lower teeth meet when she bites down. The teeth have a very natural shape and roundness to them. They actually look like they're growing out of the gum tissue. The gum tissue has natural-looking stippling and the shading even simulates a halo of blanching in the transition from teeth to gums. And because they were fitted to her most comfortable bite position, spread evenly around the full arch, she is not only very happy with the aesthetics of her new prosthesis, but she is also headache-free.
This is the result of choosing a dental team who has the experience, knowledge, lab technicians and aesthetic eye to make it all come together in a denture that is beautiful, comfortable and functional.
