Consulted Dr. M. R. Pujari (Dentist) for Dental ExaminationsTmd
I do not recommend the doctor
Problem i was facing: Whenever i swallowed anything i used to get pain around my ear and tooth area.
Doctor diagnosed TMD and suggested to put braces for 1 year and said there is NO permanent alternative for this issue and it will costs minimum of 27,000 rupees.
Therefore, I took a second opinion. This doctor diagnosed TMD with Occlusal interference. He removed the interference by using his instrument and everything got ok after that. All the pain disappeared.
Neither I had to put any braces for a year nor I had to pay such a huge amount for treatment. I won't recommend him. And i am not sure how he has got so much recommendations.
PS: I am reviewing this after 2 years now, just to make sure the problem did not reappear.
Dr. M. R. Pujari replied
My friend treatment never changes. I never force treatments on someone. I always give advice for best solution and provide treatment with patient consent. I am TMJ specialist. So my diagnosis cannot go wrong. For TMJ splint is temporary solution. Braces are permanent solution. If you have escaped now from pain then it is good but remember you will get it after 5-10 years that time your age won't permit for braces and you will regret.
Very disappointing to see that you guys get easily fooled by other dentists who are not even specialists. Any shortcut to dental problems will lead to huge damage one or other day.
