Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) can make life miserable by causing all sorts of unpleasant, debilitating symptoms. To cope, many sufferers lean heavily on pain medications which offer only short-term relief, while also causing some troubling potential side-effects. In search of non-medicinal TMD relief, some sufferers are willing to try anything; and some people have positioned themselves to take monetary advantage.

False Hope

Plenty of opportunistic entrepreneurs offer false hope to TMD sufferers. While some provide oral supplements which they market as cures for TMJ disorder; others provide questionable advice.

Author Sandra Carter recently issued a press release promoting her self-help book, “TMJ No More.” Within this book, Carter supposedly offers advice on how TMD sufferers can use exercises and dietary strategies to cure their disorders; in fact, the tricks and tactics are supposed to work so well, she says readers can expect to see results within 12 hours.

Getting Real About TMJ Disorder

Temporomandibular joint disorder isn’t some minor condition that will go away 12 hours after reading a self-help book; it’s a serious, debilitating disorder with a central, physical cause. To get real, lasting relief from TMD, patients need an actual treatment that will address the root source of the problem: a bad or misaligned bite. Exercises and dietary strategies aren’t going to provide much help to TMD sufferers, because they do nothing to repair the root cause of this serious disorder.

Forget all the Hokum

If you suffer from TMJ disorder, you will not find relief from fad products and other gimmicks which make bold, unsubstantiated claims. On the other hand, Dr. Berry offers his patients effective, permanent relief from TMD symptoms by providing a targeted treatment strategy that corrects their misaligned bites.
