... I am not surprised - my trips to both NYU's and Columbia's dental schools was futile as well - yet several dentists suggested I try them as well as one in NJ. I don't think tmj training is provided by some of the dental schools - maybe just the basics - but advanced training in it is probably left to practicing dentists to pursue on their own. That's probably why there are... (4 replies)

... oni, you sound like me before I got in a splint. My teeth and bite never felt comfortable once the dentist started messing with it. I wish I had found my current tmj doctor 2 years ago before all the others got ahold of me and my money. I truly think I would have been an easy case at that point. ... (7 replies)

... leaning towards crossing Dr. Gelb off the list so far based on what I've read on the board, unless you think I should still consider him for my relatively "mild" TMJ problem. For the others I'll see if they are covered under my medical insurance. ... (6 replies)

... Hi ladies - oh I hate mornings LOL Stillhope - I tried the OTC mouthguard when I still had my teeth and the pain was still primarily located on the anterior bridges and only slight adjustments had been done to back teeth - but I found I needed more bulk toward the cheek on one side only, my right. The bulk on the one side made my muscles on that side stretch a bit more but... (82 replies)

... I went to NYU as well - what a waste! I was told there was a 3 month waiting list for the tmj clinic - so I went to the pain mgmt clinic for meds every other week - each time a new student dentist which are supposedly grad students asked me to describe what my problem was - I wanted to scream "its in the file from my last appt - please don't ask someone who can barely open...

... dental school. Just in case anyone else in the New York area is looking for honest dentists with integrity to do a good job if I had it to do over, when I hear NYU dental school I wish I had run the other way. Another marketing tool I have seen advertised by their dental clinic are implants. ... (7 replies)

... So Dr Bassiur is accepting new patients; I guess the online sites are wrong or have not been updated recently. Its a good thing you called. I went to NYU's TMJ dept and their TMJ Pain Mgmt clinic - I got lost in the shuffle so to speak; no one seemed to know what dr I should see even though Dr Tannenbaum gave me the names of several to ask for; then they gave me tel numbers...

I don't know what his fees are, but any tmjd specialist is expensive. Try to get it covered under medical --mayofacial pain disorder, MPD. take care!!! J. (14 replies)

Anti-Depressants
May 13, 2009
... After 1 1/2 yrs of no sleep due to pain and overall muscle twitching and spasms I fianlly went to NYU's TMJ Dept's Pain Mgmt Clinic and the dr there explained how certain anti-depressants could affect the pain center located in the brain and break the chronic pain cycle that can develop over time. Although many drs had tried to prescribe them at the onset of my symptoms I... (4 replies)
... I have heard others here say neurontin is good for this (tmj) type of pain. I take triavil (perphanizine/amitriptyline combo ) which was prescribe by a dr at NYU's tmj pain mgmt clinic - and recently Luvtocamp pointed out that triavil can cause permament tardive dsykinesia (especially for woman) - which is a muscle movement disorder - which seems conflicting as then why would...

TL- how are you

... Oh - good luck with the dentist - I hope he starts to take more charge of this finally and does something. Yes I did try going to NYU Dental School - I first got referred to a chairman of the school who had a private practice on the side and he said it would be cheaper and better to go directly to the school - gave me names of drs or professors to ask for - but when I got...
