Treating TMJ Disorder Is Our Primary Focus

Many patients visit our dentist in Orchard Park, NY, trying to answer the simple question: "Do I have TMJ?" The quick answer is, "Yes. You have two of them!" TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, which connects the jaw to the skull.

When most people say, "I have TMJ," what they mean is that they are suffering from TMJ disorder, also known as TMD. TMD usually occurs when the joints of the jaw become inflamed, and it can lead to persistent jaw clicking, pain while chewing, and headaches.

Our primary focus is correcting the movement of the jaw muscles, which can improve your health, comfort, and quality of life. Dr. Dolgos can also conduct a consultation for TMJ disorder, sleep apnea, or other jaw diseases and disorders. For more info, contact us or call

Meet Our Dentist Jeffrey Dolgos, DDS

For the past two decades, I've collected a great deal of knowledge and information, earning many certificates and a few credentials. I spent many hours studying advanced dental techniques at the prestigious Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne, Florida. I earned fellowships in the Academy of General Dentistry, and in the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain through accumulating a certain number of hours and passing some tests. But my educational pursuits have not been limited to the dental field, and it always seemed that every time I found an answer to a question, several more questions would arise. These questions led me to study books and articles on physical therapy, anatomy, nutrition, biomechanics, energy medicine, alchemy, homeopathy, disease, kinesiology, psychology, physics, and sleep.

I had a particularly keen interest in the nature of light, and its relationship to consciousness. I bought my first laser in 2005, and I began practicing Reiki around the same time. At this stage of my learning, I fully accept the idea that most, if not all, disease begins in the subtle energy field, prior to manifestation in the physical body. The things we can measure and observe in the physical system are consequences, not causes. We can treat the physical systems, but healing really occurs when the true causes are allowed to arise, and can be released. As my pursuits lead me further and further into the study of consciousness and its influences on the nervous and muscular systems, I hope to incorporate a wider variety of techniques and treatment modalities into my diagnostic efforts and therapeutic protocols, and help people reach this deeper level of healing.

For now, my treatment approach centers around the optimal function of the jaw joints, the connected musculature, and the nervous system. I hope that I can help you in your search for knowledge and in your pursuit of comfort and wellness. And if you decide to visit me for a consultation, I very much look forward to meeting you!

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the soft tissues in the throat restrict the airway during the night, leading to snoring, fitful sleep, and chronic sleepiness. Over time, it can cause more serious conditions like heart disease. Our dentist applies his knowledge of dental function and jaw alignment to make custom orthotics that can shift your jaw position and open your airways.

BOTOX for Jaw Disorders

Most people associate BOTOX® with cosmetic care, but did you know it can provide relief to patients struggling with TMJ issues? BOTOX works by relaxing muscles. When it's injected into the jaw muscles by a qualified dentist like Dr. Dolgos, tension in the jaw can alleviate, minimizing teeth grinding and TMD symptoms.

Our Complete Services


Custom Oral Appliances for TMJ Disorder

The foundation of Functional Jaw Rehabilitation at our Buffalo-area practice is the Stabilization Orthotic, or what we call the MSO. This specially-designed oral appliance first de-programs the old neurological patterns that have led to your symptoms.

From there, it can help the nervous system learn new patterns that keep the stomatognathic system stable, balanced, and functioning optimally.

Dr. Dolgos crafts each of these dental devices on-site. He feels strongly that this is a significant reason so many of our patients feel so much better.

What a Real Patient
Thinks About Our TMJ Treatment

“Thank y’all so much for all you did for me and my jaw! I feel so much better and it’s amazing how much an appliance can make a difference.” Lelia J.


The History of Buffalo TMJ

​Back in 1989, a local dentist by the name of Dr. Robert S. Kull made the bold decision to exclusively focus his dental practice on the diagnosis and treatment of TMJ dysfunction. I always thought it was interesting that his name was Dr. SKull. He called his practice Western New York TMD, and it became the place to go if you had a jaw problem.

He took an approach that was very different from that which is taught in conventional dental education. It placed attention on the form and function of the joint structures themselves, rather than on how the teeth fit together. His practice concentrated exclusively on this subject from about 1989 until his retirement in 2011, at which time he entrusted it to me.

During his 20+ years of treating TMJ dysfunction and facial pain, he developed a protocol which was predictable and effective for a very high percentage of people, a unique quality in the field of TMJ dysfunction.

Before he left the profession, he taught me how he evaluated and treated his patients. I have continued to refine and develop this protocol in a continual effort to meet the needs of each individual who comes to me for help.

TMJ Rehab: Therapeutic Workbook

A 12-Week Program for Overcoming
TMD Oral Function

Most people really don't like going to the dentist — and they don't really want root canals, or crowns, or braces, or surgery. It's my goal to create a conservative, functional, and orthopedic program to help rehabilitate the jaws, without the need for surgery, braces, or significant restorative dentistry if possible.

We help people understand, and then overcome the uncomfortable, often painful symptoms that can arise due to malfunctioning jaw joints and muscles. Our primary objectives at Buffalo TMJ are to protect the joint structures from being overloaded, to deprogram the neurological reflexes that get in the way of jaw function, and to program new neuro-muscular patterns that will support optimal function and comfort. The problem is, I can only see one person at a time, and I know there are many people out there who are looking for a solution...or at least a place to start.

That's why I wrote this book. My team members and I walk our patients through a 12-week TMJ Rehab program which incorporates techniques and exercises I’ve learned from many different modalities, and adapted through the years to meet the needs of the TMJ sufferer.  This workbook outlines exercises combining elements of physical therapy, kinesiology, yoga, meditation, dietary modification, and vibrational healing into one cohesive program.
