The pain of TMJ symptoms are speaking to you. See A Specialist.
Can you hear the game show announcer? “Unloading the dishwasher, shoveling the driveway, calling your mother.” The contestant replies, “What are—things we love putting off.” The crowd laughs. It’s human nature. We love to put things off that we need to do. There is always something else we need to do, but, sometimes, doing that can lead to even bigger issues. The dishes pile up, the snow keeps falling, and mom is still waiting for that call—getting angrier by the day. The same holds true for your health. How long are you willing to deal with an issue just because you are “waiting” to see if it will get better—especially when it comes to chronic pain? Perhaps you have had a clicking in your jaw, ringing in your ears, pain when you bite into one of our famously large Buffalo burgers? Are you putting up with the pain of headaches and sinus pressure that are plaguing your work and social habits? These are all symptoms of TMJ, and it will only get worse the longer you wait to take action. Queue the game show announcer, again. “Chronic pain, lock jaw, missed work, and an even longer wait until you are free from pain.” “Things that could happen if I keep putting off going to see a TMJ specialist.” Don’t put it off any longer. Simply put—it’s going to take a longer time to free you from your pain—the longer you wait! Call us, say hello to Dr. O’Day and goodbye to TMJ. The doctor will free you now. Doctor Francis O’Day
