Jaw -TMJ

 How Dr. Specht’s Treatments Have Changed My Life 

I was first introduced to Dr. Specht by my boyfriend about 13 years ago. At the time I had a terrible case of TMJ. I was taking at least 8 aspirin a day to lessen the pain of my aching and cracking jaw, and I could barely open my mouth to eat. It sounds like a great diet plan, but it was horrible. I had spoken to a few dentists and other doctors who all told me I needed surgery, and the results were not guaranteed. There was no way that I was going to take those risks, so I had resigned myself to the fact that pain was just going to be in my life forever. 

My boyfriend told me I should go see Dr. Specht, but I fought the idea for months. How could he fix a problem that everybody else said required surgery to repair? So I continued to suffer... and resist the idea of treatment. 

To make a long story short, the pain was getting to be so intense that I agreed to try Dr. Specht. I hate to be wrong, but in this case it was a pleasure. In only 2 visits, the TMJ that had tortured me daily was gone. He stuck his thumb in my mouth, dug around for a few minutes, and voila, I was pain free. In the 13 years since, there has only been one instance where I felt a little twinge of pain in my jaw again, so Dr. Specht treated me right away and it disappeared. 

TMJ was the problem that first brought me to Dr. Specht 13 years ago, but since then he has treated me (and my family and friends) for several different issues from car accident related neck and back problems to marathon training to job-related anxiety, and so much more. As a matter of fact, neither my husband nor I have been to a traditional “medical doctor” in the last 13 years. We haven’t had to. Dr. Specht keeps us in tip-top shape! 

With gratitude to the Doctor and his staff,

During one of my visits to Dr. Andrew Specht, I had mentioned my oldest son grinds his teeth, and that he also had a hole on the bridge of his nose. Was there something he could do to help him? Dr. Specht said he could test to see if it was an emotional or structural issue for the teeth grinding. As for the hole on his nose he would also see what he could do to heal it. 


The results were such that with one visit, my son no longer grinds his teeth, and the hole on his nose had begun to fill in like it was healing and the infection was going away. 

Now the interesting part of this is, that I had taken my son to our family dentist for the teeth grinding. They had tried rubber mouth peices, chewing gum, eating hard veggies and hard fruit before going to bed, in hopes of tiring out his jaw. Nothing had worked. 

My son had been grinding his teeth since he was about 5 years old. Finally, 10 years later, after many mouth peices, severe headaches, many sleepless nights..............after one visit to Dr. Specht, my son at age 15 no longer grinds his teeth! The hole on his nose, which he had been born with, had always been infected. The doctors said that it would heal as my son got older, or they could do surgery on it. Finally, there was also some closure to that. 


My son is now 18 and the damage to his teeth has stopped since he no longer grinds his teeth. 

I have challenged Dr. Specht with many different medical problems over the years and he always, always heals. 

Thank you ever so much for all your healing. 

Sincerely Grateful,
