The Practice of H.Charles Jelinek Jr. DDS
I started out with a lot of issues with my jaw. A lot of popping, clicking, and lots of headaches and pain. Went to an ENT and they actually referred me here. Ever since I started with the appliance I've seen a noticeable difference. I’ve probably had one or two headaches out of like every two or three months. Which is drastically different than a couple a day. There is no more popping, I don't really have as much soreness while eating. Overall it has been a really positive experience.

How often do you meet a dentist who gets excited and energized when you’re making progress? I admit I was jaded and skeptical about my TMJ plan. I was desperate after so many uncaring TMJ experts turned out to be a bandaid at best. This guy cares and his approach has changed my attitude about how much I can overcome the pain and side effects of TMJ. My results are beyond what I had imagined in my best case dreams. Still working towards a complete and lasting cure at 6 months. But I’m pain free in every sense and better every day. I’m confident I’ll get there for the first time ever. If you’re serious about getting this monkey off your back he’s your man. He gets my highest recommendation and thanks.

Based on referrals, I sought treatment for my sleep apnea from Dr. Jelinek, Jr., DDS. Sleep apnea is a common disorder that results in the involuntary cessation of breath that occurs while someone is sleeping. I had severe sleep apnea and after several years of unsuccessful results from a CPAP machine, I was interested in trying an oral appliance. An oral appliance is a custom-fabricated dental device that moves the lower jaw into a forward position, increasing space in the airway. The extra space that is created prevents the airway from collapsing, which can help to reduce sleep apnea. Without treatment, sleep apnea can result in high blood pressure, which can damage the walls of the carotid arteries and increase the risk of stroke... I elected to seek treatment from Dr. Jelinek because he is one of only five dentists in the Washington DC Metro area who is a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine. He is especially qualified and experienced in treating patients with sleep apnea who are CPAP intolerant. My experience thus far has been OUTSTANDING! Dr. Jelinek and his entire staff are extremely professional, courteous and caring. Every step of the process in obtaining an oral appliance was explained in detail with measurement procedures performed in expert fashion. I have been using an oral appliance for approximately one month. The results were immediate and life changing. I now sleep throughout the entire night, not waking up 3 or 4 times like I was prior to my using an appliance. I am now able to reach such a deep sleep that I experience incredible dreams, compared to no memory of dreaming when I was previously waking up 3 or 4 times a night. I would rate my experience and results from Dr. Jelinek and his superb staff as an A+. I am very pleased and deeply appreciative with my improved ability to sleep through the night. I now look forward to an evening's sleep where my prior sleep experience was a constant battle to fall asleep. I sincerely thank and am very grateful to Dr. Jelinek and his entire crew for their dedication to improving the lives of patients through the use of an appliance that provides restorative sleep.
