We are excited to bring you the first of many TMJ patient interviews that we will be featuring here at TMJ Hope. Jessica & I were able to spend some time on the phone talking about her journey with TMJ disorder and TMJ arthroscopy. Here’s our chat:
Stacy: Tell me a little about yourself Jessica.
Jessica: I am 22, live in PA. am a senior nursing student. I have had
TMJ disorder since I was 15. It is only on the right side.
Stacy: How did you get diagnosed?
Jessica: I wish I could remember. When I was in middle school I chewed gum non stop. When I got into high school I started
having problems with clicking and popping when I chewed

started going around trying to get me into braces, but the
dentists said that we needed to find out what was going on
with my jaw.Read More »Jessica's TMJ Disorder Story – A Patient Who Gives Us Hope!
