Patient Testimonials

“Dr. Raman & his team are amazing. I have had clicking & pain in my jaw for over ten years. Within the first week of treatment both of these have gone away. Dr. Raman has been very thorough in finding a solution to my problem. I wish I would have seen him earlier.”

– Ryan DeLong

“Such thorough testing and diagnosis. Dr. Raman knows what he’s doing. I’ve had long term neck and back pain that started to affect everyday life at all times and I had been everywhere (chiropractors, kinesiologists, physical therapists) to no avail. This was the missing piece to getting my body back!”

– Daniel Deuschle

“Prior to seeing Dr. Raman I was in severe pain 24/7 without even realizing due to my tmj and scoliosis. I have only been a patient of his for a couple of months and I feel 90% better and this is only the beginning.”

– Ellie Wood

“After suffering from chronic migraines, chronic fatigue, and several dental issues for longer than I care to admit, I finally visited The Raman Center. It was life changing! Relief from symptoms was immediate! That was 6 years ago. I remain headache free, my sleep has improved tremendously, and my dental issues are ancient history. Happy to report that I am 100% healthy and happy.”

– Moira Vogt

Relieve Pain with TMJ Treatment in Kansas City

TMJ disorder is a painful and often debilitating condition that stems from a misaligned jaw joint. People with TMJ disorder often suffer from headaches, facial pain, ear pain, difficulty chewing and talking, worn down teeth, and other symptoms that make it challenging to go about daily activities. Due to these symptoms, your family life, social life, and career can suffer.

But you don’t have to live with TMJ disorder pain. With the help of Kansas City, TMJ treatment dentist Dr. Prabu Raman, you can regain your life. Patients who have received TMJ treatment from Dr. Raman describe it as life-changing, as they can enjoy their favorite activities that were no longer enjoyable with TMJ pain.

Yes, TMJ disorder is a serious condition that can severely affect your enjoyment in life. Not only can the pain from TMJ cause depression, but the misalignment of your jaw can also cause permanent bone and nerve damage. As TMJ disorder worsens due to non-treatment, it’ll become hard to eat healthy foods, leading to obesity and an overall unhealthy body.

Dizziness and vertigo are symptoms of TMJ disorder. Your jaw joints (TMJ) sit on either side of your head, just below your ears. Strained muscles and inflammation from the joint can extend to your ears. This can pull on the canal that holds the liquid and tiny hairs that let you determine your position in space and balance. When this canal is stretched, it can send wrong signals to your brain, and you’ll feel off balance.

Treat Your Sleep Apnea to Better Your Life

Sleep apnea is a common condition that is 80% undiagnosed and untreated. Those with sleep apnea suffer headaches, daytime sleepiness, snoring, memory fog, mood disturbances, and much more due to the lack of sleep they receive each night. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common type of sleep apnea and is treatable in our Kansas City dental office. Through the use of oral appliance therapy, we can reposition your jaw at night, so your tongue and other soft tissues don’t block your airway. With a clear airway, you’ll sleep all night, wake up feeling rested, and generally feel like yourself again. Treating sleep apnea also lowers your risk for comorbidities that result from untreated sleep apnea, like heart disease. Make an appointment with Dr. Raman today to treat your obstructive sleep apnea and enjoy your life again.

Sleep apnea will not go away on its own. If you truly have sleep apnea, your airway becomes blocked during sleep due to factors that don’t disappear. To treat sleep apnea, you’ll need to see your Kansas City sleep apnea dentist, Dr. Raman Prabu.
Sleep apnea is dangerous for many different reasons. To name a few, sleep apnea puts you and others at risk when you’re driving a vehicle or operating machinery at work, it can cause heart disease, worsen diabetes, cause type 2 diabetes, and play a role in the development of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. This doesn’t even cover the mental health consequences of untreated sleep apnea.
