General Questions

Treatment varies from patient to patient, depending on the severity of the TMD diagnosis; however, generally treatment can take approximately six months to complete. Once you meet with Dr. Zusko to discuss treatment options, he can give you a better idea of how long your treatment will take.

Only 10 per cent of temporomandibular disorders will require surgery and are considered a last resort approach.
Dr. Zusko has a 90% success rate in treating temporomandibular disorders.
Most of Dr. Zusko’s patients have been successfully weaned from their appliances. Less than 5% of patients seen cannot be weaned off their appliances. Other options exist to eliminate orthotic wear.
No, once your jaw is stable, you should see your chiropractor or massage therapist for aiding muscle realignment. Co-treatment by more than one care giver provides a synergistic effect as each treatment supports the other and allows the body to focus its healing in a positive manner.
If you have outside insurance coverage, our financial coordinator will send an estimate to your insurance company prior to starting your treatment to determine whether a portion of your treatment will be covered or not. It is important to note that most companies usually cover a small portion of the treatment cost.
