I was fitted for a TMJ orthotic in November. It’s been 2 months and I have noticed an improvement with sleeping. The dizziness and left ear fullness that I was suffering with for over a year has improved. Dr. Pilar spent the time to explain what was causing my symptoms and how the appliance would help keep from clenching at night which would slowly fix my condition. He is a great doctor and will recommend him to others.
I have only started using an NTI device made by Dr. Pilar a couple of months ago, and I am cautiously optimistic. My sleep has improved and my headaches have become less frequent. My muscles in the neck, shoulder, and jaw area are still tender. I wear the guard every night. I have tried Dr. Pilar's direct current therapy also, and it had an immediate muscle relaxation effect all over, but it only lasted for a couple of days. I would not call NTI a miracle cure, but I feel that it is beneficial, and I hope my state will improve further in the long run.
Dr. Pilar will work with you to get reimbursement from your insurance if you have one. I got my reimbursement a month after treatment, which I think is a miracle (I have had negative experiences regarding reimbursement for this kind of treatment in the past). He has your best interest at heart.
To reach the doctor, call his cell phone and not the office.
Dr. Pilar was very helpful, friendly and patient. He went above and beyond to make sure that I understood about TMJ and the treatment he provides. I notice such a huge difference with the night guard that he made me. I feel so much better now.
Went to Dr Pilar as a TMJ specialist because I suffered from severe migraine headaches. I had been to every neurologist and headache specialist for years. Dr. Pilar was a god send. He also used a specialized headache massage. Now that I am wearing the device I am feeling so much better.
It's unfortunate to see many misinformed reviews on here about Dr. Pilar. Honestly, his custom orthodic is the only one I have ever had that worked to... Read more at Yelp.com.
I have been a patient of Dr. Pilar for close to ten years. His knowledge and expertise is amazing. The nightly orthotic has helped me tremendously. I rarely get migraines, In the past, I would get constant migraines. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is suffering from migraines. He has changed my life.
