patti-testimonial“Dr. Malin is very knowledgeable and has great expertise in what he does.”

“As a child, I had a space between my front teeth and an overbite. In grade school, I began orthodontic treatment, including a headgear which eventually reduced to a retainer. By high school, my teeth looked great but I began having headaches and my jaw would lock up. I would put my head back while washing my hair in the shower and my jaw would lock. It would be a painful hour or so before I could work it loose.

“The pain and headaches continued for years. I sought help from the medical community, but if the letters “T”, “M” and “J” appeared in any combination on my diagnosis, insurance wouldn’t touch it. I saw a dentist and was told I needed an MRI. I paid for one out-of-pocket, and the results showed that my jaw was dislocated on both sides. The disc on one side was completely gone, and on the other side the disk was in fragments.

“I went to physical therapy where they iced and massaged my jaw. I went to a chiropractor. I took lots of ibuprofen. I had an orthotic made by a dentist which helped but which broke easily. I went to a major teaching and research hospital. They suggested irrigating my jaws to remove fragments of the disks. I decided against anything that invasive.

“I also had many ear infections during this time and had to have tubes put in my ears. In hindsight, I see that my Eustachian tubes were being narrowed by the pressure from my misplaced jaw.

“Enter Dr. Leo Malin. I came to his office on referral from my brother. I found all the staff to be very personable and professional. Dr. Malin is very knowledgeable and has great expertise in what he does. His neuromuscular approach combined with his technical knowledge and experience is what gave me back a life free of jaw pain and headaches.

“Using special technology, he determined where the bite should be so my muscles were not firing. Then he provided me with an orthotic that really worked. It gave me my life back, getting rid of the tension headaches and jaw pain. Without it, I would have been on a liquid diet and pain medicine forever.

“While the orthotic relieved my jaw pain and served as a means to make sure my bite was correct, it was not ideal aesthetically. What happened next was an absolute God-send. Dr. Malin did a full-mouth reconstruction so that not only my teeth came together and I had no pain, I had a beautiful smile!

“My mouth and jaw feel great, and I can now confidently smile and converse without a second thought. I had forgotten how fantastic that feels!”
