As far as dentists go, Dr. Han is a superstar!
I am a long-time teeth grinder and clencher who has worn a pliable night guard for many years. After I received two dental implants and a new bridge over the past two years I developed TMJ. I suddenly began to experience a loud clicking in my left jaw when eating. My family dentist gave me a new bottom night guard in hopes of mitigating the clicking problem. After almost a year with no relief I found Dr. Han. During my first visit Dr. Han determined that because of the previous dental work my bite was very much distorted. In fact my back teeth were not touching at all when biting. After performing several tests Dr. Han very patiently and clearly explained what was going on. He then crafted his custom Bite Stabilizer (made of rigid acrylic) for my upper teeth. I began wearing the Bite Stabilizer which was very comfortable and fit like a glove. After a few days Dr. Han even called me on my cell phone to see how I was doing. After wearing the Bite Stabilizer for a few weeks I had a follow-up visit with Dr. Han. During that visit Dr. Han made some adjustments to the Bite Stabilizer and also to my teeth. I continued to wear the Bit Stabilizer nightly and was astonished when after about a total of one month of wearing the Bite Stabilizer the clicking in my jaw completely disappeared! During my follow-up visit two months later Dr. Han found that my bite was stabilizing and that my back teeth were now touching when biting down. In fact Dr. Han didn't even need to make any adjustments to either my Bite Stabilizer or teeth. I continue to wear the Bite Stabilizer nightly and have a follow-up visit with Dr. Han in six months. Needless to say I am very grateful to Dr. Han for the TMJ relief he has given me. Dr. Han's knowledge, attention to detail, professionalism and truly caring nature are second to none! I have never encountered a dentist more passionate and dedicated to his profession than Dr. Han. I highly recommend that anyone struggling with the pain and discomfort of TMJ put their trust in Dr. Han and his equally caring and capable staff!
