I was suffering from reduced jaw opening and in constant severe pain. Until I met Mr Cascarini, I was beginning to suffer at work and avoiding social get togethers. He gave me the confidence that he could help me. I'm now 4 weeks post-surgery, having had an arthroscopy with BMAC and I am so grateful to Mr Cascarini, his surgical skills and knowledge regarding the TMJ is unquestionable. My recovery process is still in its early days, but I am now relatively pain free, sleeping at night and my jaw opening has doubled, thus allowing me to eat.
I had a long history of pain since May 2020 when I developed toothache, ear pain and my face became swollen on one side. My dentist diagnosed bruxism (where you grind, gnash or clench your teeth sometimes in your sleep or unconsciously). Having seen Mr Cascarini, I wouldn’t go to anyone else. He is phenomenal very easy to relate to, he understands and is straightforward, an extraordinary man who has given me my life back. Morea and his team have also been amazing and gave me the reassurance I needed.
Although the surgery is quite involved, I found the whole process (including the surgical recovery) much more straightforward than I had anticipated. This really didn’t feel like a ‘car crash’ surgery: but rather a highly controlled, and relatively pain free one. I attribute this to Mr Cascarini’s skill and gentle approach. I would recommend that anyone suffering from similar jaw problems seek advice and trust Mr Cascarini’s informed opinion: he is conservative in approach and I trust that he would not recommend surgery lightly.
