“Their knowledge, compassion and treatment are incomparable!”
After countless years of different treatments, therapies and specialists, I was very fortunate to meet Dr. Abeles. This practice has been amazing in helping treat my TMJ since day one.
They took hours to run several tests to properly fit me for an appliance to help ease my TMJ related symptoms. They are very thorough and the technology they use is quite impressive. Dr. Abeles has the best staff as well. His assistants, Angie and Shelley, are amazing people, always friendly and so helpful. They’re truly wonderful at what they do!
Living mostly out of state, they have always worked with me to get an appointment in my short time in Georgia, or on short notice in urgent situations. They spend sufficient time with me and always make sure I am completely satisfied with adjustments before I leave.
Dr. Abeles and his staff have been nothing short of miracle workers to relieve my TMJ symptoms. I highly recommend them to anyone suffering from TMJ. Their knowledge, compassion and treatment are incomparable!*

“I know if I had not heard about you and your special care, I would not be functioning today.”
The day I walked into your office I was in excruciating pain. I couldn’t eat. I could not open my mouth wider than an inch. Even talking was painful. I had a jabbing pain along my jaw line down through my ear. I was in constant pain and even my sleep was fretful because of it.
I had tried my regular dentist. I tried my chiropractor. No one seemed to be able to help me. This had gone on for months and I was getting worse.
I felt and looked like I was a hundred years old. No one should have to live with pain like this constantly. I was devastated. When I felt like I could not go on… that’s when I heard about you. I called your office and was seen right away.
That very first day I saw Dr. Abeles, Rhona and Angie and everyone was so caring. I left with a soft appliance to help relieve some of the pain. I wore the soft orthotic until my actual one could be made. Each visit that I made, my bite was adjusted and I improved every day!
No one can describe or understand the pain that TMJ causes unless you have experienced it yourself. It is truly debilitating. I know if I had not heard about you and your special care, I would not be functioning today.
I want you to know how wonderful you and your staff are and how thankful I am! You are the very best. It’s been six months… and I’m totally pain free!*

“My experience with Dr. Abeles and his wonderful staff has changed my life immensely.”
My experience with Dr. Abeles and his wonderful staff has changed my life immensely. My quality of life prior to my TMJ treatment limited my ability to enjoy food, speaking and routine activities.
The staff at the Atlanta Center for TMJ walked me through the process of treatment. They explained my TMJ and answered all of my questions and concerns.
They were responsive at all times and truly cared about my improvement and quality of life. My TMJ has improved to the point that I forget I had limitation before.
I cannot express my gratitude enough for how special everyone here is and how they have contributed to my well-being.*
– Chelsee Whitling M.D.
“Going through with their treatment plan was one of the best decisions I ever made.”
When I first came to Dr. Abeles for a consultation, I was at a very difficult point in my life. I had been diagnosed with TMJ dysfunction by a neurologist after going through months of testing. The migraine headaches I was getting were so very painful and occurred so often that I was forced to deal with them in order to attempt to live a normal life.
I was tired of trying new medications every few months in hopes that it would help, only to find out the side effects made things worse. Dr. Abeles and Angie were so knowledgeable about my condition that I felt that there was another solution.
Going through with their treatment plan was one of the best decisions I ever made. I’m feeling so much better after four months of treatment. I maybe have an occasional manageable headache now and I’m confident they will all but disappear by the time my treatment is complete.
I cannot express my gratitude for the opportunity to get my life back. Thank you!*

“After my first month of treatment, I couldn’t believe he had solved ALL the problems that multiple other doctors and dentists had failed to even diagnose!”
As a dental hygienist, I have tried every single TMJ treatment you can think of! From a simple night guard to massage, chiropractic to Botox, I’ve done it all.
Of course, none of it worked long-term. I finally became so sick of the vertigo, earaches, burning feeling in my joint and constant headaches that I went to Dr. Abeles for help.
After my first month of treatment, I couldn’t believe he had solved ALL the problems that multiple other doctors and dentists had failed to even diagnose!
I can not speak highly enough of this practice and their methods. They really make you feel like family and actually know what they’re doing.
It is a miracle and I am so thankful every day for this treatment. I feel like I can finally live my life without fear of headaches or symptoms.
Thank you, Dr. Abeles and team, (Sandra, Angie, Becky, Cindy, Shelly) for taking exceptional care of me!!!*

“I never had hope that I would not live in agonizing pain… and now I do!”
I have suffered from horrible TMJ disorder and chronic nerve pain for several years. After going to all different kinds of doctors from neurologists to specialists, no one could help me. I found Dr. Abeles and came to him barely able to open my mouth. Even smiling hurt. Dr. Abeles and Angie suggested I might have trigeminal neuralgia in addition to tmj disorder and they also referred me to a rheumatologist.
It was discovered that I have a connective tissue disorder causing double-jointedness which also affects my jaw. Since then, with my new tmj appliance, my trigeminal neuralgia flare-ups have significantly decreased and I have much less jaw pain. Thanks to Dr. Abeles and Angie I’m aware of health issues I never knew I had and I’m on the road to recovery.
I never had hope that I would not live in agonizing pain… and now I do!*

“Dr. Abeles’ care, patience and knowledge is like no other.”
I had been experiencing severe TMJ symptoms and had worked with two prior dentists with limited results before discovering Dr. Frederick Abeles.
Dr. Abeles’ care, patience and knowledge is like no other.
It has been about a year since I first started my treatment with the Atlanta Center for TMJ. I am pain-free and feeling more like myself than I have in years.*
– Vanessa Jenik
“I know you are told over and over how much you have helped change lives. I am one of the most grateful.”
I want you to realize just how much you have changed my life. I am no longer in pain due to TMJ. It has been years. You are all such wonderful and caring people. I really, really appreciate what you have done for me. I can now deal better with my husband, who has Alzheimer’s. My whole life has changed for the better without pain.
I have suffered for years. I truly didn’t expect the relief you have given me. “Thank you.”
My daughter from Chicago, found Dr. Abeles online, researched your success and flew here for my first appointment. Kim was very impressed with the plan and so happy with the results.
Angie is so skilled with impressions and adjustments that she makes the visit fun. She is wonderful. Rhona tries to make appointments fit your needs. Out of town patients get advice on where to stay and how to make best use of their visit.
I know you are told over and over how much you have helped change lives. I am one of the most grateful.*

“Dr. Abeles and his team are a God-send!”
Dr. Abeles and his team are a God-send! After experiencing years of excruciating jaw and facial pain as well as terrible migraines, I thought there was no way out.
Dr. Abeles and his team took the necessary time to diagnose my jaw issues and led me down a path of recovery and healing. No meds needed!
I’m grateful for this very professional and compassionate team.*

“My migraine headaches are gone!”
I’m so happy to have found Dr. Abeles. He’s the best!
In a few short months of working with me… My migraine headaches are gone!*

“The change and improvement has made a world of a difference for me and I am blessed by them all!”
What a difference! Before seeing Dr. Abeles at the Atlanta Center for TMJ, I truly had no idea what could be done to relieve the tension, headaches, jaw pain and restricted jaw movement. Not only could I not open my mouth straight, but I could not open wide at all without a great deal of pain.
Dentists referred me to doctors. And doctors referred me to dentists. No one had a clue. My dentist and I finally found Dr. Abeles on the internet – and everything changed.
The state-of-the-art treatment plan was designed especially for me. Dr. Abeles’ staff knew exactly what I was feeling and could tell me why and exactly what was causing my pain. Not only were they right on target, they had a plan and could help me.
I was skeptical at first, but at this point there was nothing else left to try. From the x-rays, I already showed bone loss in my joints. Angie and the others knew what to ask me and could answer my questions before I could even ask them!
Finally, people who knew and understood what to do about this jaw pain and jaw popping. They could not have been more professional and personable. At each visit I noted improvement. Yes, I had difficulties and speed bumps along the way.
It’s reassuring to me to know that these professionals see and specialize in TMJ pain. When Angie says, “Don’t panic, we can do this”, she speaks from experience. The change and improvement has made a world of a difference for me and I am blessed by them all!*
– Robin Smith
“Put your faith in Dr. Abeles and his staff. They are exceptional.”
I’d given up expecting help to alleviate my extreme jaw and facial pain… until we found Dr. Abeles on the internet.
He and his staff are incredible! Angie is amazing: knowledgeable, funny, easy to talk to and a hoot! Becky and Cindy are great too. And Sandra, Dr. A’s receptionist is sweet and efficient.
I wondered initially if the treatments and mouth appliance would really work, but they have. I’m getting my life back after almost three years of constant pain!
We live three hours away, and every minute of the trip has been worth it.
Wonderful people, wonderful results! Put your faith in Dr. Abeles and his staff. They are exceptional.*

“It’s one of the best investments I’ve ever made in my health.”
I had come to a point where my jaw problems were interfering with just about every aspect of my life.I couldn’t sleep through the night without my jaw locking up, couldn’t eat without constantly trying to keep my jaw mobile and couldn’t sing without always being conscious of it (I’m a professional singer).
I decided to move forward with Dr. Abeles and the Atlanta Center for TMJ. It’s one of the best investments I’ve ever made in my health.
Dr. Abeles’ expertise, matched with the decades of experience of his passionate and friendly staff, completely eliminated the worst of my symptoms after a few weeks and resolved all my symptoms within a few months.I actually looked forward to my follow up visits, as part of the treatment involves focusing on relaxing and rehabilitating stressed muscles.
I highly recommend Dr. Abeles and his team. Issues with TMJ can all too easily become debilitating and it’s not something to compromise on when it comes to quality care.*
– Tony DeSare (Professional Singer, Pianist, Songwriter)
“This practice is a magical place that makes magical moments.”
TMJ disorder consumed every waking moment of my life until Dr. Abeles accepted me as a patient. His compassionate and caring staff have given me the gift of hope that my future will be with a clear mind.
This practice is a magical place that makes magical moments. Thank you, Angie, Shelly, Beckie, Cindy, Sandra and Dr. Abeles.*
– Judy Parris
“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
I was having headaches that were pretty debilitating. Doctor visits left me with lots of medicine to take but not knowing why I was having the headaches.
I was reading someone’s blog about TMJ and headaches that made me wonder if that could be my problem. I made an appointment with Dr. Abeles after doing some research online.
I have nothing but praise for his expertise and his staff. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I would have never connected my headaches to my TMJ. They are now gone. In fact the headaches stopped shortly after I started my treatment.*
– Ione Rosser
“It was the best money I’ve ever spent!”
I’ve had chronic pain in my left jaw, as well as a clicking from bone on bone that had gone on for twenty years. After going to eight different dentists only to be given a mouthpiece, I found no relief.
I called another dentist to give it one last try… and he referred me to Dr. Abeles at the Atlanta Center for TMJ. Thank God.
Finding Dr. Abeles and his entire staff was a new awakening in my seventy-five years of life, realizing there are professionals in the medical world that actually know what they’re doing.
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Abeles and his staff, Sandra, Angie, Shelly, Cindy and Becky. The treatment each and every session was professional, individualized and state-of-the-art in every way.
I have to say, when I first started, I wondered if the cost of all the combined procedures, consultations and follow-up appointments would actually work.
Well, one month into treatment… I was sold! My jaw was finally beginning to realign with no more clicking or pain. It was the best money I’ve ever spent!
The outstanding service took my TMJ from a level of grinding, clicking and pain to a smooth and aligned jaw with no clicking, grinding or pain.
If you suffer from TMJ, I highly recommend Dr. Abeles and his staff to find the solution you’re looking for. They’re the best ever and will correct your problem!*
– Judy Barry
“It’s life changing to have such a reduction in the number of headaches I have.”
After 40 years of almost daily headaches, it’s life changing to have such a reduction in the number of headaches I have. I wish I had found Dr. Abeles and his team much earlier in my life.*
– D’Ann Downey
“You have simply reinforced my belief that there are still wonderful, honorable, honest, good, lovely people in this world.”
Now that the search seems to be over, I wanted to write you a letter of thanks for all the help you gave me. You went over and above for me and I am very grateful. Not only did you admit that TMJ probably wasn’t the cause of my pain, and actually told me you didn’t want me to spend my money on something that might not help, but you then went out of your way to find the right ENT for me in hopes of a better outcome.
Actually, your high ethical standards, your kindness, professionalism and thoroughness should be the norm, but they aren’t and that’s just life. You have simply reinforced my belief that there are still wonderful, honorable, honest, good, lovely people in this world.
May the Lord truly bless you in your business and personal life. Please feel free to use my name as a reference or recommendation. If there is ever anything I can do for you please don’t hesitate to let me know.
With warmest regards,*

“This is the closest ever to a cure!”
I’ve had migraines 2-3 times per month for 20-plus years. I tried Botox, acupuncture, weekly massage… everything I could find that could possibly reduce or eliminate them.
The only solution had been migraine medicines and prescription drugs. But they cause extreme sleepiness and the migraines days were total losses for any productivity.
In my ongoing search, I found Dr. Abeles and MIRO Therapy® online. After an initial consultation and the staff going above and beyond the call of duty, especially since I flew in every time from out of state… I started into treatment with my aligner and ongoing checks and therapy.
My migraines have all but disappeared. This is the closest ever to a cure!*
– Amy Matesich
“I am going to be forever grateful to these special people who changed my life.”
After two TMJ arthroscopic surgeries, three splints purchased that did not help me and daily debilitating pain, I had lost all hope. The doctor prescribed me an anti-inflammatory and a muscle relaxer to help the pain.
The drugs were not working for me and I knew I had to find someone who could help me. I found Dr. Abeles when I Googled, “world renowned TMJ specialists.” I was surprised when I found Dr. Abeles was only 2 ½ hours away.
I read the testimonials and knew I had to meet him. Dr. Abeles was very honest, compassionate and explained TMJ in a way I understood. Leaving the office that day I left with hope. My pain was affecting my marriage, my health and quality of life.
Dr. Abeles’ treatment was not painful. In every part of the treatment process I experienced relief. Angie made an orthotic that actually gave me relief. I had purchased three in the past and was skeptical about it working. After a week I had relief from my pain.
Dr. Abeles is so caring. Rhona and Angie are so friendly. You don’t feel like a number.
Dr. Abeles and his staff gave me my life back. You can’t put a price tag on your health.
I am going to be forever grateful to these special people who changed my life. I am 36 years old and to imagine living a life of pain was not an option for me. I am thankful there are dentists like Dr. Abeles who practice dentistry that see it as a calling and not a job.*
– Tara Seaborn
“I thank God for sending me to you.”
I came to Dr. Abeles with almost constant headaches, stuffy ears and ringing in my ears. These three symptoms were driving me crazy.
I assumed I had to live with them as medical doctors kept telling me there was no problem. Then my dentist told me about the Atlanta Center for TMJ and said, “I think they can help you.”
AND… you did! Wow!! Within a week of wearing my bite appliance, my symptoms were practically non-existent.
I’m amazed and I tell everyone about it. I had no idea the pain in my neck and shoulders were also related to my TMJ. I’m improved in more ways than I thought possible.
And the staff are all excellent – so caring, so personable and so professional. My gratitude and appreciation goes out to everyone.
I thank God for sending me to you. May He continue to bless you and your practice.*
– Beth Montano
“Finally… now I can say, I have my life back.”
I never knew what chronic pain felt like until both my jaws were dislocated in March 2017. They never reduced, with a minimal opening of my mouth. Oral surgeons, TMJ specialists, chiropractors and multiple appliances all drove me to desperate measures.
On my birthday in September 2018 I drove to Charlotte, North Carolina and was ready to schedule the recommended bilateral jaw replacement.
But insurance refused to pay what was easily a six-figure amount.
My husband intervened and suggested another less invasive route. He found Dr. Abeles on the web and read all the info he could find. We drove five hours to Atlanta and we were convinced his methods sounded reasonable and would help my plight (my husband more than me).
Well, after just a few visits, I saw results right away.
Angie, Becky, Sandra and Dr. Abeles kept assuring me progress was being made. Finally… now I can say I have my life back. I’m not depressed anymore and relearning to eat is a pleasure. Customer service, communication and working together with this group has been beyond excellent.
I highly recommend them. Perseverance and continuity are critical for success.*

“Within two weeks of his help I felt like a brand new person!”
Before coming here I could barely open my mouth. And when I could, the pain was so bad it had me in tears.
I talked to my orthodontist about it and they were not helpful at all. So, I just ‘Googled’ what to do and found Dr. Abeles.
I can say without a doubt that within two weeks of his help I felt like a brand new person! Their therapy worked so well for me and so quickly that I wish I’d gone years ago!
The people there are the nicest, most helpful that I’ve ever experienced. And going to these appointments really are the highlight of my week because of the people and how well the treatment works!
Because of them, I feel better than I have in a very long time!*
– Savannah McCullery
“Dr. Abeles and his team are incredible!”
I’m 23 years old and started having TMJ symptoms my sophomore year of college. I considered myself very fortunate for not having headaches – but I had neck pain and could barely open my mouth.
After speaking to many doctors, I finally found a doctor with the expertise, technology and understanding who could actually help. Dr. Abeles and his team are incredible!
A couple weeks after beginning treatment I was seeing real results. I now can eat comfortably and I’m not tense with pain. Dr. Abeles is someone you can trust. I’m very grateful to him and his team. My quality of life has absolutely improved!
Thank you Atlanta Center for TMJ!*

“Watching you all work together is like watching a dance.”
As we take this journey of healing together, I thank you for following your life’s passion and purpose. I have been treated with caring, attentive listening, professionalism, education, hope, expertise, humor and patience.
Watching you all work together is like watching a dance. God Bless and thank you.*

“It’s worth every penny I spent. Money can’t replace the quality of life I regained.”
Dr. Abeles and his staff Sandra, Angie, Becky, Shelly and Cindy have been lifesaving to me. The pain I had each day was unbearable and unmanageable with any treatment I tried.
My quality of life has been restored. I would highly recommend this treatment plan. It’s worth every penny I spent. Money can’t replace the quality of life I regained.
I am forever grateful for the Atlanta Center for TMJ!*

“This treatment has been life-changing and mere words cannot begin to describe how grateful I am.”
Ever since I was around twenty years old, I have suffered from headaches, sometimes debilitating migraines. The longest headache lasted 17 days. Also, for the last few years, I have dealt with neck pain, back pain, muscle fatigue, general body fatigue, eye twitching and difficulty swallowing.
In December 2011, I began experiencing symptoms of vertigo which quickly increased in frequency and severity. I became unable to care for my children, my husband, my household and even myself.
In March 2012, I began treatment with Dr. Abeles and Angie at the Atlanta Center for TMJ. Within a matter of weeks my vertigo was non-existent. I have had no neck or back pain. I have not taken one pill for headaches and my tinnitus has drastically decreased.
Not only am I able to care for my family, but I’ve “spring cleaned” our home and I’m juggling ten balls just like a mom of four should be!
This treatment has been life-changing and mere words cannot begin to describe how grateful I am. Thank you, thank you, thank you!*
– Tiffany Loera
“This journey has been 100% worth it.”
Before Dr. Abeles my jaw clicking and popping was so bad I had to unlock it before I could even open. You could hear my jaw pop from across the room!
I had extreme vertigo, dizziness, neck, shoulder and muscle pain. Before this, I had been to four dentists, purchasing three or four dental appliances. I have tried chiropractic care as well.
I was very skeptical and nervous at first. I was hopeless before and cried many tears of frustration and thought I would be disabled forever.
With Dr. Abeles it has taken a very long time because I am hypersensitive to everything. I have a bite guard I wear all the time. I have zero jaw clicking or popping. My vertigo and dizziness are gone.
I’m in zero pain. I’m able to exercise, garden and sleep at night. My muscles on my face and jaw don’t hurt.
Angie has been amazing. Her talent level is phenomenal. I love her patience, gentleness and ability to talk to me very warmly.
This journey has been 100% worth it.*

“Thank you for giving me my life back.”
Thank you for everything you have done! I came one year ago for a consultation and my life has drastically improved because of it! Thank you for giving me my life back.*

“Dr. Abeles and his wonderful staff, Angie, Sandra, Cindy and Becky are AMAZING!!!“
I started experiencing a tremendous amount of pain out of nowhere. And I struggled with managing the pain for months.
The doctors kept giving me pills. They couldn’t figure out what was wrong. Meanwhile the pain was so intense, I couldn’t work.
I was finally told by my dentist that I may be experiencing symptoms of TMJ disorder and that I should consult with a professional.
After a ton of research we settled on the Atlanta Center for TMJ. The ratings were stellar. And the reviews had me convinced to give it a try.
I have to admit, I was very worried. I walked in crying from the pain. And now, a year later… I’m happy to say I feel 95% better. The therapy was worth every penny!!
Dr. Abeles and his wonderful staff, Angie, Sandra, Cindy and Becky are AMAZING!!!
I highly recommend them. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.*
– Tamara Silva
“I must say God sent me an angel.”
I have had TMJ for the last five years. I believe it all started when I tripped and fell. Then one night I could not open my mouth.
I was in sheer panic for a long time. I tried over the counter pain medicine and it worked for a while but the pain continued. I couldn’t eat. I couldn’t sleep. I was certain I was going to die, choking on my own food because I couldn’t chew or swallow.
I had been to several dentists. None could help until I found Dr. Abeles. I was skeptical at first but after my first consultation and appointment I must say God sent me an angel. I no longer have or feel any pain. I can open and close my mouth. I can eat. And most importantly, I can sleep.
Thank you Dr. Abeles. You have truly been a miracle worker.*
– Michelle Robinson
“They have given me my life back – the best gift a person could ever receive.”
When I first came to the Atlanta Center for TMJ I was unable to work and had lost fifteen pounds. I couldn’t swallow, eat, chew, talk or walk without severe pain. I had nerve pain on the entire left side of my face, horrible muscle spasms that occurred many times throughout each hour of the day. I had to puree everything I tried to eat.
No one that I had seen prior to that had helped me at all and I came from out of town to see Dr. Abeles and Angie. The compassion and understanding they treated me with was just amazing. Angie determined that I also had trigeminal neuralgia and after calling many neurology offices, found a neurologist who would see me the next day.
I have worked very closely with Angie over the past four and a half months and have never worked with a healthcare professional who is more knowledgeable in her area of expertise, listens as well to her patients, responds to questions and concerns and addresses problems with the care, quality, detail and concern that she does.
I am now able to work, have gained weight back and am better in all aspects of my life. I cannot say enough good things about Angie, Dr. Abeles and everyone in the practice. I would highly recommend them to anyone dealing with a TMJ problem.
Many, many thanks to all of them for their exceptional care, concern, professionalism and skill. They have given me my life back – the best gift a person could ever receive.*
– Elizabeth McCormick
“I’ve been headache free for three months now… and I can’t believe it!”
I’d been suffering from migraines and joint pain for upwards of 3 years when I found my way into Dr. Abeles’ office. The entire staff was incredible during my entire treatment here.
I’ve been headache free for three months now… and I can’t believe it! I honestly never thought I’d be okay again.
Thanks to everyone at the Atlanta Center for TMJ for all of your hard work!*
– Colin Frazier
“He and his amazing staff are the best EVER!”
My TMJ pain was controllable up until a year ago when I had a couple of fillings and a crown placed. After that I had intense pain. Over the course of a month the dentist tried multiple mouthguards along with muscle relaxers and pain pills – none of which helped.
I was given a referral to a TMJ specialist and went for an assessment. The chairside manner was lacking and I didn’t feel comfortable there. So, I did my own research and found Dr. Abeles and the Atlanta Center for TMJ. I decided to make an appointment and I’m so glad I did.
He and his amazing staff are the best EVER! They do so much for you and are always there to help you if you need it. My pain level went from a 10/10 to 2/10 within two weeks of wearing my aligner. A year later the pain is completely gone.
If you are suffering with TMJ pain or headaches, I definitely recommend you give Dr. Abeles and his staff a chance!*
– Chris Auzenne
“His commitment to excellence is evident in everything he does.”

“My experience at this office has been phenomenal. You have truly changed my health for the better and I will be forever grateful.”
I initially began to have trouble with TMD when I was 19 years old and a sophomore in college. My symptoms began as muscle soreness and a very slight clicking in my left TMJ. Over the years I have tried many solutions – three different occlusal bite guards, an NTI, massage therapy, chiropractic care, muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory medications.
All of these solutions worked for a short period of time but nothing could rid me of the chronic pain I felt which was steadily getting worse over time. I dealt with my pain and headaches for ten years until I could no longer take it. I began to experience vertigo and headaches so intense I couldn’t think clearly. I knew at this point I had to stop ignoring this, stop trying to treat the symptoms and find a solution.
I’m a dental hygienist so I have some knowledge of TMD. I knew there were dentists out there that specialized in TMJ therapy and I was prepared to do anything to become pain-free… even surgery.
I chose Dr. Abeles because looking at his background, I found not only the amount of experience he has in his field is great, but he also teaches other dentists in his field. The testimonials on the website were also helpful and made me hopeful I too could find a solution with Dr. Abeles as my doctor.
My experience at this office has been phenomenal. Dr. Abeles and Angie have made this experience great by offering above and beyond the standard of care. They show you they really care by the amount of time they spend with you at each visit. I feel like more than just a patient; they make you feel like you have found friends who care about your well-being.
Thanks to Dr. Abeles and staff my symptoms are slowing getting better over time naturally and I’m going to be able to avoid surgery. My quality of life has improved. Thanks Dr. Abeles and Angie for your excellent care. You have truly changed my health for the better and I will be forever grateful.*

“Coming here was the best decision I’ve ever made.”
When I first came to the Atlanta Center for TMJ, I had already seen two different people and had not seen actual help. I was in the worst pain I had ever felt, with chronic migraines and facial pain and also facial spasms.
Once I came here, I immediately felt like Dr. Abeles cared about how much pain I was in and wanted to fix it. The staff here is absolutely amazing and I am eternally grateful for all they have done.
I never thought four months ago I would be pain free and eating everything I want. Coming here was the best decision I’ve ever made.*

“…if the house caught fire, we wouldn’t run in to save the photos and memories. We’d run through the fire to get my orthotic!”
Dr. Abeles and his staff finally gave me the help I needed for my TMJ. I had been to other dentists who took my money and left me in more pain than I was in before. Before I came to Dr. Abeles, I had headaches every day and was in tremendous pain. I thought the situation was hopeless.
The orthotic that Dr. Abeles created for me has been a gift! I wear it every single night, and even when I’m working doing work that may cause me to stress out and clench my jaw.
My husband and I joke that if the house caught fire, we wouldn’t run in to save the photos and memories. We’d run through the fire to get my orthotic! It has truly changed my life. I can’t believe Dr. Abeles was able to correct my TMJ without surgery.
Thank you Dr. Abeles for giving me my life back and correcting my TMJ!*

“Everyone went beyond my expectations.”
After previous attempts with two different dentists to resolve severe pain when chewing plus jaw being locked, I found the TMJ practice of Dr. Fred Abeles.
The initial consultation with Dr. Abeles convinced me that I had found a dental specialist who would indeed help me. And I was right. I have been helped tremendously, not only by Dr. Abeles, but also by the entire staff of the Atlanta Center for TMJ.
Several facts of treatment have contributed to my successful outcome:
1) A comfortable and relaxing office
2) Precise measurements of my bite
3) Stimulation of jaw and facial muscles
4) Exceptionally skilled associates
5) A highly knowledgeable dentist
6) A great front desk staff
Everyone went beyond my expectations. I now eat pain free and I can open my mouth wider with comfort. I am extremely grateful for the dental practice of Dr. Fred Abeles.*

“I found the most incredible treatment I never thought I’d find!”
When I came to Dr. Abeles, I was slowly declining and losing the ability to physically function easily everyday.
After seeing at least four other doctors, I finally came to the Atlanta Center for TMJ. I found the most incredible treatment I never thought I’d find!
Everyone here knows exactly what they’re doing and will do everything they can to give you the best lifestyle moving forward.*
– Zoey Hackemer
“They have changed my life.”
Within two weeks of the start of treatment, my headaches, eye-watering facial pain and jaw pain were completely gone. And for the first time in years, I could eat without my jaw popping and I no longer have any locking. I can open my mouth again without any issues.
Dr. Abeles and his staff truly understand the impact that TMD has on his patients. Other practitioners recommend pain pills but Dr. Abeles gets to the root cause – which is the only way to live the rest of your life as a normal person.
I’m so thankful for Dr. Abeles and his staff – they are like family. Angie is a Godsend!
If TMJ pain is controlling your life, call the Atlanta Center for TMJ. They have changed my life.*

“I have had acupuncture, dry-needling, pain management, injections, manipulation, surgery. Nothing worked until I was fortunate enough to meet Dr. Abeles.”
Well. I didn’t think it possible – especially after almost five (5) years of pain and 14 doctors later, but I believe I have now found pain relief with Dr. Abeles. From the moment you walk in the office, you are greeted and treated in such an easy manner (Rhona is so friendly and caring). It certainly made my heart lighter.
I will start by saying that I was a bit skeptical with all that I had been through, but Dr. Abeles’ assistant, Angie, took that all away. Not only is she funny, but very knowledgeable and helpful. Any question you have, his staff is ready to assist.
Pain can take a huge toll on you. I could hardly function at work; my focus was minimal; my pain was HUGE! At night, I went to bed around 8:00 p.m. because I was so exhausted from the physical and mental pain.
I have had acupuncture, dry-needling, pain management, injections, manipulation, surgery … the list goes on and on. None of these worked – until I was fortunate enough to meet Dr. Abeles. His patience is apparent and he takes the time to explain what he is doing.
The bottom line … he knows what he’s doing and he implemented the best possible treatment for my varied and prolonged issues. I highly recommend Dr. Abeles and his staff. You have absolutely nothing to lose, except … PAIN!*

“These last nine months of treatment have changed my life and given me a quality of life again.”
I suffered for many years with headaches, facial muscle fatigue and shoulder pain. The worst symptom of all was my left ear was ‘stuffy’. I went to multiple ENT’s and audiologists and no one could ever find a reason for this.
Finally, a friend who is a physician’s assistant, mentioned that I could have a problem with TMJ. I did some research and this was definitely what I was dealing with – for a long time.
My mom found an article about Dr. Abeles in a journal at her doctor’s office and I read the book, Break Away that he had written.
His methods made perfect sense and I made an appointment.
These last nine months of treatment have changed my life and given me a quality of life again. Dr. Abeles and his staff are the best.*
– Ivy Chupp
“I can honestly say finding Dr. Abeles and Angie has been a life-changing experience.”
Before I found the Atlanta Center for TMJ, I was experiencing headaches and migraines that lasted for three months, twenty-four hours a day. I was depressed and in pain. I remember during my initial consultation, I broke down in Dr. Abeles’ office from the sheer joy of the possibility of being free of the pain caused from TMJ.
Two years later I can tell you I have not had any headaches or migraines. My quality of life has improved and I can honestly say finding Dr. Abeles and Angie has been a life-changing experience.
The staff is delightful and I encourage you to seek help if you are experiencing any TMJ issues.*
– Betsy Lacy
“God Bless the whole group!”
I started having jaw problems, clicking, popping and locking up. It hurt so bad.
I went to three dentists in my hometown. One said just to live with it and the other two wouldn’t even touch it. One tried to make me an appointment in Florida somewhere with no results.
So, I went online to find a TMJ doctor. Thank God I found Dr. Abeles and his staff. With their help and the bite appliance they built for me to wear on my bottom teeth, my jaw is lining up and I have no more clicking and popping. It hasn’t locked up since.
No more hurting. Yea! The doctor and staff are wonderful. They’re friendly and very helpful with helping you through the whole process.
I hate to think where I’d be at this time if I hadn’t found them. God Bless the whole group!*

“OH! What a difference!”
I’m 57 years old and have been having problems for about 10-12 years:
Jaw pain – I would go to a chiropractor. Good for a while.
Vertigo – Unexplained.
Ears stopping up – For no reason.
Ringing in my ears – Especially at night.
Then the headaches started. The chiropractor said his adjustments on my jaw weren’t holding. After that my jaw locked and I couldn’t open. I called my dentist and he gave me things to do to help the swelling go down. Then he said the magic words, “If it keeps up we’ll send you to a TMJ specialist.”
I didn’t know they existed. I went online and looked up specialists in TMJ. I started researching and made an appointment to talk with Dr. Fred Abeles. He explained what was happening before I told him my symptoms! So we started therapy.
OH! What a difference!
Angie is awesome to work with as are the rest of the staff. I highly recommend the practice. I drive an hour to an hour and a half to their office because it’s worked.*
– Beth Ashworth
“I’d forgotten what a day without pain looked like… until now.”
I came to Dr. Abeles’ team sure that I would just be in pain forever, that this was just my ‘new normal.’
I’d been suffering from headaches, face pain, neck pain and back pain for many years. Busy with school, I put it on the back burner and tried to push forward.
I let the pain become my new normal and didn’t even realize how much it was affecting my life, personality, energy level and social life. They were all negatively impacted.
I tried a number of different treatments over the years and never found a solution. So, I had finally just given up. When I heard about Dr. Abeles… I decided to give it another try.
To my surprise, this time was different. It took some ups and downs and some adjustments here and there – but Dr. Abeles and Angie were always working closely with me and determined to get me feeling better.
I can honestly say I’d forgotten what a day without pain looked like… until now. I can’t thank this team enough for allowing me to remember and return to my normal self.*
– Mary Sims Hershey
“The staff at Dr. Abeles’ office is phenomenal!”
Before I came to The Atlanta Center for TMJ, I was in constant pain for a few years. When I decided it was time to finally address the problem and couldn’t ignore the pain any longer, I made an appointment with my dentist and his partner who specialized in TMJ.
After concluding my jaw issues were beyond his ability to treat, I was referred to Dr. Abeles’ office. Knowing and trusting my dentist’s judgment, I made an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Abeles.
I was very informed, very impressed and I felt hopeful after my consultation. I began treatment as soon as possible.
Through the last few months, I not only feel the difference, but can also see the results. It’s nice to be able to know confidently that your treatment is putting you in the right direction.
The staff at Dr. Abeles’ office is phenomenal! They’re transparent, very personable and make the entire experience enjoyable and easy.
I’m happy to be on track to have a completely pain-free and functional jaw. And I owe it all to Dr. Abeles and his team. They’re fantastic!*
– Maddie Lupo
“My only regret… I didn’t find them sooner! Dr. Abeles’ treatment has changed my life.”
I had suffered from TMJ for over 10 years before coming to Dr. Abeles. My symptoms had gotten progressively worse over the last two years. I’d reached a point where I was having headaches several times per week and my jaw was clicking and popping when I ate.
It hurt to even open my mouth or to brush my teeth in the morning. And my face was so sore it hurt to laugh.
I had tried acupuncture and massage therapy, but both were only temporary fixes. I had also talked to my dentist about my problem but his only recommendation was to wear a night guard, which I already had. I knew in order to get better, I needed to find a TMJ expert.
I found Dr. Abeles and the Atlanta Center for TMJ through an internet search. After having a consultation with him, I felt confident he could help me. Dr. Abeles and his entire staff are experts in the field of TMJ.
Angie, Dr. Abeles’ treatment coordinator has been amazing throughout the treatment process. After getting my bite appliance, my symptoms quickly dissipated!
Although the treatment is costly, it was worth it! My only regret… I didn’t find them sooner! Dr. Abeles’ treatment has changed my life. Now, I don’t miss out on activities with my kids anymore because of headaches and pain.*
– Kim Coursey
“Dr. Abeles’ treatment for TMJ has truly helped control my pain…”
For the last twenty-five years I have had sinus and ear pressure. I have undergone three surgeries, medications and allergy treatments. None of these helped me in the long term. Dr. Abeles’ treatment for TMJ has truly helped control my pain and greatly reduce the medication needed.*
– Randall Anderson
“DR. ABELES AND ANGIE HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE AND I AM SO GRATEFUL!”
I was treated for TMJ symptoms ten years ago. Unfortunately, all of my symptoms came back five months ago.
I visited several orthodontists who told me they couldn’t help. One told me it would be a waste of time and money to treat me and he hoped I didn’t get lockjaw.
Then, I found Dr. Abeles.
At that time I was absolutely miserable and definitely depressed. I couldn’t eat without my jaw popping. I had facial pain, jaw fatigue, trouble sleeping, general fatigue, sore neck, sore shoulders and back pain. I suffered from migraines two to three times per week and was desperate to feel better.
After just two weeks of wearing my bite appliance all of my symptoms went away. I’ve had three minor headaches in two months. I feel like I’ve gotten my life back.
I forgot what it felt like to feel normal! I couldn’t be happier with the results of my treatment. Dr. Abeles and Angie have changed my life and I am so grateful!*

“I feel like Dr. Abeles, Angie and the other staff have given me back my quality of life.”
I had been suffering from headaches, tinnitus, hearing loss and vertigo for 12 years. I saw six ENT’s who all diagnosed me with Meniere’s disease. The last one wanted to schedule surgery.
Dr. Abeles confirmed that my symptoms could be from TMJ. After treatment, I no longer have vertigo and my tinnitus, hearing loss and headaches have all greatly improved.
I feel like Dr. Abeles, Angie and the other staff have given me back my quality of life. Thank you so much!*

“I really liked his philosophy of treating the root cause of the pain – not just masking symptoms.”
After suffering for several years with jaw pain and headaches, I was becoming more and more fearful about permanent damage to my TMJ.
So I did some research online and talked to my dentist (who recommended an oral surgeon for Botox).
I ordered Dr. Abeles’ book, Break Away: The New Method for Treating Chronic Headaches, Migraines and TMJ Without Medication. I really liked his philosophy of treating the root cause of the pain – not just masking symptoms.
I’m now doing so much better with decreased headaches and I don’t have to worry about doing permanent damage.
Dr. Abeles is very knowledgeable, kind and caring. Angie, Sandra and all of the staff are super – kind, caring and they really know their stuff!
Angie can relate to everything I tell her about my process, based on her personal and professional experience. They also explain everything really well and make sure you understand.
I highly recommend the Atlanta Center for TMJ!*

“What a blessing Dr. Abeles and Angie have been.”
For 6 years I have suffered from migraine-like headaches. I had seen neurologists, chiropractors, etc. and nothing was getting to the root of the problem. Finally, I did a little research into the connections between headaches and TMJ, which I also suffered from.
After meeting with Dr. Abeles and his wonderful team, I felt this was the treatment I had been praying for. Within a week of wearing my appliance, I could tell a difference in my TMJ and jaw pain.
I waited for a migraine to happen and it didn’t. I went from one to two headaches per month lasting two to three days each time – to no headaches at all.
What a blessing Dr. Abeles and Angie have been. And what a difference this treatment has made in my day-to-day life!*

“He has changed my life!”
I have been to so many doctors who have all said they could not help me. Being an international teacher means I’m not in one place for very long, but I’m so thankful Dr. Abeles took me on as a patient.
He has changed my life! I went from having headaches every day, migraines once a week and my jaw locking up with terrible pain – to NO headaches, migraines and little to no jaw pain.
I have more energy and… I can eat a salad again! 🙂
Thank you, Dr. Abeles and your team!*
– Patty Fawcett
“I owe Angie so much gratitude for saving me.”
After two years of off and on jaw pain and numerous trips to a TMJ doctor, wearing my appliance every night… I woke up one morning and experienced the worst pain of my entire life.
I ended up in the ER twice over the next two days. I was given numerous narcotics but nothing helped my pain.
My husband found Dr. Abeles and he took us in the next evening. We immediately loved him and felt we were in the right hands. The entire office stayed late to take x-rays and got me in the following morning to make a temporary appliance.
Within ten minutes Angie told me I had trigeminal neuralgia, something numerous doctors and two emergency rooms were not able to diagnose. Thanks to them, I immediately got on the correct program. And I owe Angie so much gratitude for saving me.
I could not eat or talk when I first met them. But starting even with the first temporary appliance I noticed a difference.
Slowly, I could see I was getting my life back. The whole office is wonderful and truly excellent at what they do. I can’t thank Dr. Abeles and Angie enough for what they’ve done for me.*
– Joanne Mahoney
“What a wonderful, life-changing experience!”
What a wonderful, life-changing experience! I came to Dr. Fred Abeles with TMJ – clicking in my jaws, pain when I chewed and at times my jaw locking open. In just a few short months I am pain free and my jaw is working perfectly! What more can I say… I’m a totally happy person!
I would recommend Dr. Abeles’ practice and his excellent staff with two thumbs up.*

“I consider them a miracle in my book of life!!”
The Atlanta Center for TMJ has done wonders for my health. Before I discovered the Atlanta Center for TMJ last November, I thought I was going crazy. I thought I had ear infections, yet my primary and ENT doctors said I didn’t. The ‘fluid’ I felt in my ears would not leave. I was in pain but didn’t know why. My ENT gave me 800 mg of Motrin and suggested I alternate between heat and ice packs.
The procedures and custom guard that Angie (TMJ Master Queen) did were phenomenal. It fills that empty space between my teeth so I can chew and live much more comfortably. I looked forward to coming to my appointment each month since I knew I would feel so much better when I left.
Call the Atlanta Center for TMJ. I consider them a miracle in my book of life!*
– April Rogers
“The professionalism and caring they bring to their patients is really incredible.”
Prior to my treatment with Dr. Abeles, I had severe clicking in the jaw joint, along with associated muscle fatigue and pain. After following his specific treatment plan to correct my TMJ problem, I’m completely symptom free.
Dr. Abeles and the entire team at the Atlanta Center for TMJ are top notch. The professionalism and caring they bring to their patients is really incredible. I’m already recommending them to family and friends.*
– Larry McDonald
“All of my symptoms are gone.”
In approximately October of 2017 I began experiencing a severe clicking in my right ear. I also had moderate to severe pain in my neck and shoulder and severe headaches.
I would wake up at night with pain so severe that I couldn’t sleep. I was seen by several doctors, including two ENT’s. No one was able to help. One doctor suspected it was TMJ.
My daughter searched the Internet for a specialist and by God’s grace she called Dr. Abeles’ office. I had an appointment with another specialist for nearly a month but my family was so concerned with my suffering that I got an appointment the next day to be seen by Dr. Abeles.
My treatment began in January 2018. It’s now July. All of my symptoms are gone.
To have such an experience and compassionate care by Dr. Abeles and his staff with such encouragement from Angie was worth it all. Thank you so much.
I can truly recommend your practice to anyone. May God bless you all.*
– Hyacinth Bowen R.N.

When I first came in I was having such problems with my jaw, neck and frequent headaches. After a couple of weeks with my orthotic and treatments I felt like a new person! My jaw and neck pain went away and my headaches decreased dramatically.
I am so happy and pleased with my treatment here. Everyone has been extremely helpful and wonderful to work with. Angie, Rhona and Dr. Abeles have been awesome and I am very grateful for all their help and expertise.
Thank you all for everything and for helping me feel like I knew I should.*

“My headaches, severe neck pain, facial pain, shoulder pain, ear pain and joint pain… gone!”
Prior to coming to Dr. Abeles I had visited another doctor and was treated for TMJ with no success. After a very thorough and comprehensive examination with Dr. Abeles I was offered the best news possible… relief from my pain. I never realized how much pain I had learned to tolerate until after I had my custom appliance and my pain disappeared. My headaches, severe neck pain, facial pain, shoulder pain, ear pain and joint pain… gone!
I now wake up feeling rested, relaxed and rejuvenated and during my daily activities I don’t have to battle with my TMJ. I have found success thanks to Dr. Abeles and his kind and compassionate team.*

“You will receive ultimate, considerate care.”
When I came to see Dr. Abeles I had already been to numerous doctors and had been through numerous tests, mainly for dizziness. I began to have facial pain, dizziness and a pulsating sensation in my face. The doctors gave me antibiotics for a sinus infection which didn’t help. Another doctor diagnosed me with Meinere’s disease. Another told me I could be having “silent migraines.”
My family dentist told me I had TMJ. My family physician referred me to an oral surgeon who referred me to a TMJ specialist. I found Dr. Abeles’ website, said a prayer,
and made an appointment to see him.
He confirmed that I did have temporomandibular joint dysfunction. We began treatment with an orthotic. After 30 days I still was not much better but I agreed to try it for another two weeks. What a difference that made! I now feel 95% better and I’m enjoying my life again. My symptoms had been with me for seven months until I saw Dr. Abeles.
Dr. Abeles, Angie and Rhona treat me as if I am the only patient they have. When they say they care about their patients, they truly mean it. I recommend Dr. Abeles
and his practice to anyone suffering with TMJ dysfunction. You will receive ultimate, considerate care.*
– Pam Cardin
“I am blessed for having found Dr. Abeles and his outstanding staff.”
What brought me to see a TMJ specialist was my fear of the unknown! Having a consultation with Dr. Abeles allowed me to ask all the questions I had, in a safe place. I left that consultation with such a peace and assurance that this is where I could be helped with no fear of the treatment.
From the moment I walked through the door, right from the ‘non-clinical’ feel of the office, I was placed at ease. The staff has calmed my fears of treatment and has fixed my joint locking and tension through such a comfortable treatment and experience.
I am blessed for having found Dr. Abeles and his outstanding staff. I definitely came to the right place!*
– Roberta Simmons Smith
“I saw dramatic improvement in my pain level within a few weeks”
I am 19 years old and a current student at Kennesaw State University. Before I came to the Atlanta Center for TMJ my jaw would click and pop out of place and I had a radiating pain throughout my jaw that made it too painful to eat, open my mouth or even enjoy life.
I sought out Dr. Abeles and his amazing team who gave me great news; my condition was curable and had I not come in my problem would have deteriorated.
I saw dramatic improvement in my pain level within a few weeks after I got my bite appliance. Since then I have enjoyed my follow up appointments, getting treated like a princess by the staff as I see more and more improvement in my bite and my quality of life.*
– Katie Cherry
“I will be forever grateful for the gifts they have given me!”
Although I had suffered from migraines my entire life, my headaches with accompanying ear pain and dizziness became progressively worse.
I had multiple scans and saw many specialists, including two different neurologists and a neuro-otologist.
The pain became so chronic, so debilitating that I had to utilize short-term disability twice in an 18-month period. The depression and anxiety resulting from the chronic pain and decreased quality of life I was experiencing led me to a psychiatrist for medication and support.
Finally, my primary care physician suggested that he felt my pain could be due to muscular dysfunction.
I researched many treatment locations and providers. I decided to consult with Dr. Abeles. The diagnosis and treatment plan he suggested made so much sense to me as a nurse. My primary care physician agreed and I began to have hope!
Eight months later, my investment has paid off and I feel significantly better. My headaches are not debilitating; I have returned to work; my quality of life has improved so that I no longer utilize psychotherapy; the pain in my right ear with associated symptoms has disappeared. Only rarely do I experience them.
The staff and Dr. Abeles are wonderful! They have answered any questions that I have had. Angie is so knowledgeable, always explaining the root causes of the symptoms of TMJ disorder and providing me with pearls of information to enable me to heal more quickly. And Sandra has always returned my calls in a timely manner, which is very important to me as an established patient.
As I move to Phase 2 of my treatment I will miss the support Angie and the staff provide. I will be forever grateful for the gifts they have given me!*
– Dana Baxter RN, BSN
“His team is incredibly kind, talented and helpful…”
Before discovering the Atlanta Center for TMJ, I thought there weren’t any real treatments for my jaw pain. I felt extreme anxiety that I’d just have to accept the pain as a chronic condition for the rest of my life.
But then I found Dr. Abeles and his amazing team and everything changed. I was immediately reassured that my discomfort was treatable and they worked quickly and efficiently to treat it.
Dr. Abeles is clearly an expert in this field. His team is incredibly kind, talented and helpful with people like Sandra and Angie providing excellent care. The whole environment is very warm, welcoming and comfortable.
This is the best treatment I’ve ever received, hands down.*

“Dr. Abeles hit the nail on the head, immediately identifying what was wrong…”
My TMJ problem was getting worse by the week – to the point where my jaw would lock and pain would be pulsing, creating headaches and not letting me enjoy a lot of daily activities.
Dr. Abeles hit the nail on the head, immediately identifying what was wrong and giving me a clear path of action.
From there his team took great care of me, walking me through each step of the way, always making sure I was understanding everything.
The best thing… they always had a smile and a warm welcome. I would highly recommend this office for its efficiency in resolving my problem and the team’s personality for treating me. *

“I am so grateful I found the Atlanta Center for TMJ. They gave me my quality of life back!”
My jaw pain and headaches started about six months before I sought treatment. When I began waking up every night from the jaw pain, I knew I had to see someone. I had received Botox in my masseters to help with the tightness and to relieve some of the pain but I knew that was only masking the problem.
I found Dr. Abeles through an online search, did some research and made an appointment. Dr. Abeles was very thorough with his consultation and was confident he could help me.
In a matter of a few weeks the headaches and jaw pain subsided and I was sleeping through the night!
Angie was so helpful in explaining how the guard worked and walked me through expectations of my new appliance.
I am so grateful I found the Atlanta Center for TMJ. They gave me my quality of life back!*

“On my drive here today I thought about how far I’d come and how happy I am that I chose this office.”
This treatment has exceeded my expectations. My pain was giving me headaches, neck pain, anxiety, depression and vertigo. I felt hopeless at times.
On my drive here today I thought about how far I’d come and how happy I am that I chose this office.
Smart people surround themselves with great teams. Dr. Abeles’ team is the absolute best. Angie is awesome and has had years of training and experience. You are in great hands with her.
Try to convince Dr. Abeles to pop in your own music playlist. That’s the only negative I can take from this experience! ?
Feel assured you are in the right place.*

“It’s just amazing how much better I feel!”
After almost nine months of pain that many specialists didn’t know how to address, I was truly blessed to find Dr. Abeles, Angie and the whole team at The Atlanta Center For TMJ. They are all kind, professional, and helpful. Dr Abeles will take time to listen, and my heart goes to Angie for all the dedication and time she poured into helping me. It’s just amazing how much better I feel! I am very grateful for all the help I have received! If you are suffering from TMJ, there is help!*

“The staff is phenomenal and will go over and beyond…”
Before I went to The Atlanta Center for TMJ I was having excruciating pain on a daily basis. I already had braces in my mouth and with constant moving of my teeth it was unbearable.
I did not have a bite, had constant tenderness in my head and pain in my neck, which I was dealing with daily.
Ever since I started wearing the appliance, my bite is aligned, the tenderness has decreased tremendously and no neck pain. I was at a point where my TMJ caused my personal life to go downhill. Now my personal life is back and I can enjoy going out without having pain.
I recommend the Atlanta Center for TMJ to anyone who is having pain. The staff is phenomenal and will go over and beyond to make sure you get the best of treatment.*
– Megan Hawes Baldwin
“Within weeks I felt better than I had in years.”
I searched high and low and tried almost everything imaginable to find relief. Dr. Abeles was the first person to explain the sources and causes of my TMJ instead of trying to just treat the pain and side effects.Everything was explained in ways that were easy to understand.
Within weeks I felt better than I had in years.
The office staff was as friendly and courteous as you could ever want. Each month I was so happy to see everyone and everyone at the office made me feel like they were 100% invested in my result and doing all they could for a positive outcome.*
– Justin Odell
“I feel like I got my life back.”
Angie and Dr. Abeles have been caring for me for several years now. While treatment can be an ongoing process, it is worth every minute!
I had previously been to several TMJ specialists and had two orthotics made. I never stuck to the treatments because there was either lack of results, lack of explanation or lack of care.
I had migraines and pain for years to the point of which I could no longer go on that way. I came to see Dr. Abeles and Angie as a last resort. They took so much time explaining the process, setting expectations and helping me understand the root of the problem.
After just a few months, I felt an 80% reduction in pain. 80%!!
As a result I felt like doing the things I enjoyed again. My work productivity increased and my personal relationships improved.
I feel like I got my life back.
Angie always spends as much time with me as it takes to get the adjustments right. She cares about my care and that is really priceless.*

“From the first week with my new orthotic I started to find relief!”
I had jaw problems for almost eight years before I came to the Atlanta Center for TMJ.
When I first arrived at Dr. Abeles’ office I was in constant pain with headaches, jaw popping and overall discomfort from my shoulders up. That was how I was living from the moment I woke up until I went to bed.
From the first week with my new orthotic I started to find relief!
Now that my Phase I treatment is over I finally believe that I can live without terrible pain in my jaw, face, head, shoulders and neck. It’s a good day with more to come.*
– Margo Osborne
“Dr. Abeles and his staff are amazing!”
I’m so thankful I found Dr. Abeles! I’d been diagnosed with temporomandibular joint dysfunction almost fifteen years ago from clenching my teeth during sleep – all stress related. My symptoms resolved after I left my job.
Fast-forward fifteen years… after all those years with no symptoms, I woke up one morning with terrible jaw and neck pain, headache, jaw clicking and piercing pain when I chewed. I had to get relief.
Dr. Abeles and his staff are amazing! The visits here are actually very enjoyable and relaxing! My symptoms are about ninety percent resolved after six months of treatment.
It’s so great to have non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical options for treating temporomandibular joint dysfunction. Thank you!!*

“Thank you for touching my life.”
It takes many people and many events to make one’s life beautiful. You are one of those people in my life. Your kindness and professionalism have been wonderful. Thank you for touching my life.*
– Walter Garner
“I had lost hope – but now I’m so grateful…”
Prior to my treatment with Dr. Abeles my TMJ pain was debilitating. I constantly wanted massages because of the muscle tension in my face, neck and shoulders.
The facial pain was so bad that I had to quit my job in the customer service field because talking was just too painful. My pain also caused moodiness and I didn’t feel like the happy woman that I used to be.
Since my treatment, I have improved so well that my quality of life is back! My pain is gone. My happiness has returned and I am impressed with the results they have achieved.
I had lost hope – but now I’m so grateful for the expertise of Dr. Abeles, Angie and his staff. Many thanks.*
– Kyndal Aiken
“I cannot say enough about Dr. Abeles and his staff.”
I initially came to Dr. Abeles because I was experiencing extreme pain in my left ear and frequent headaches. After six months of therapy my pain is essentially gone and I rarely have headaches.
I cannot say enough about Dr. Abeles and his staff. They are extremely caring and supportive and truly want the best outcomes for their patients.
I am so grateful that I found Dr. Abeles and his entire team.*
– Judy Bytheway
“I FEEL LIKE A NEW PERSON!”
When I found Dr. Abeles online, I was hesitant to call or even believe I could be helped. My jaw muscles were always very tight and this caused many headaches – which made my job as a court reporter very difficult.
Now, I even sleep better and hate being without my night appliance. Dr. Abeles, Angie and the rest of the staff have made this process almost easy.
Most of all, I have less headaches, my facial muscles are never tight and I feel like a new person!*
– Angie Williams
“Their MIRO Therapy® has made a world of difference with my TMJ issues and pain.”
I found the Atlanta Center for TMJ after several unsuccessful attempts to seek treatment at other practices. Dr. Abeles was by far the most welcoming and understanding doctor I’d met with. Their MIRO Therapy®has made a world of difference with my TMJ issues and pain.
All of my symptoms had immediate improvement and the wonderful staff have made treatments almost enjoyable.*
– Sophie Glass
“This is definitely the place to be…”
I have had daily headaches for four years that no doctors were able to treat. I have had TMJ problems since I was a teenager. It wasn’t until I came to the Atlanta Center for TMJ that I realized my headache problems were actually due to my TMJ.
My jaw had locked partially closed recently after a wisdom tooth extraction. I went to see a TMD doctor who advised me on a healing plan but I wanted a second opinion. I researched, read a lot of literature on TMD and eventually found Dr. Abeles. I met with him and was very impressed with him and his staff so I decided to become a patient.
After a couple of months, my disc popped back on and I have been able to start recovery. My headaches have gotten better. We are still working on full treatment of my TMD but my symptoms are so much better. I have been very pleased with the care and service I’ve received from Dr. Abeles and Angie.
This is definitely the place to be for the treatment I’ve gone through. This has been a tough ailment physically and emotionally and they have helped comfort and motivate me through it all. Thanks!*

“I thank God I found Dr. Abeles and his team because now I can live a normal life pain free and most importantly, without drugs in my regime every day.”
I was seventeen years old when I was diagnosed with TMJ. I spent the last sixteen years coping with headaches, jaw aches and clenching, thinking that was the norm and that was the card I was dealt.
I have spent thousands on retainers which never helped anything other than protecting my teeth. I have been to specialists which all told me pain killers and retainers were the solution to my problem.
Four months ago my retainer broke after one year and several hundred dollars later. I decided enough was enough. I was tired of drugs. I was tired of pain. I was tired of not living my life.
I found Dr. Abeles by doing three days of research on alternative solutions and he was the only one that prescribed a solution other than medication; he fixed the problem by finding out exactly what the problem was. I was very, very cautious and skeptical of his tactics and methods and the cost in general for the whole procedure.
After talking with my wife, we decided to visit Dr. Abeles and discuss what he could do for me in his consult. I still was fearful of the cost and what happens if he can’t help me and I just wasted all this money for nothing. This will not be the case.
First off, Dr. Abeles will examine you and look at your particular case to see if you would even be a viable candidate before he ever agrees to take you on as a patient. Once he accepted me, I spent the next four months in his rehabilitation program.
The first two months I had very little improvement for several reasons. It was demoralizing and frustrating. I wanted to quit and walk away. I stayed with it and it was the best decision I’ve ever made.
The major breakthrough for me was when my appliance was hitting perfectly on my teeth and that’s thanks to Angie. I have a very sensitive bite so it took quite some time to make it perfect. The other amazing moment was when I began physical therapy with Tracy. It was sixteen years of tension released in one gloriously painful PT session but if you can tough it out it is worth it.
My head and jaw were in pain for three days after the PT session but on the fourth day I woke up feeling like I did when I was sixteen. I had forgotten what it felt like to not be constantly reminded by my head throughout the day.
From that point on I have only had one headache and taken two Advil in the last two months, where before I was taking two 800mg. Ibuprofen, one Tylenol and a muscle relaxer two times a day every day to cope.
I thank God I found Dr. Abeles and his team because now I can live a normal life pain free and most importantly, without drugs in my regime every day.*

“It’s hard to describe how thankful I am to be able to live pain free and enjoy the simple pleasures in life again.”
It’s hard to describe how thankful I am to be able to live pain free and enjoy the simple pleasures in life again. I hope someone will benefit from my story and realize there is an alternative to suffering.
In August 2003, I had major surgery and was restricted from any exercising, lifting or bending for 8 weeks. When I returned to work and began normal activities, I immediately began experiencing excruciating pain. The pain seemed to radiate from my left ear. Sometimes sharp, unbearable pains would shoot into my forehead, the back of my head, down my neck and along my jaw.
I had no idea what was causing my pain but I took ibuprofen and acetaminophen to try to alleviate my suffering. Unfortunately these meds did little to help. I soon began to have problems eating. I was not able to open my mouth as wide as normal. When I took a bite that required chewing, sharp pains would shoot from my left jaw into my head, ears and neck.
As time went on, my pain continued, increased in intensity and became more frequent. It was debilitating. I was missing more and more days from work. I was missing out on church events, family events, and more importantly, not being able to fully participate in my children’s lives. Basically I was missing out on life!
I was taking four ibuprofen every four hours and I knew something was seriously wrong. I contacted an ear, nose and throat specialist. No help. I tried a pain clinic. No help. My regular dentist felt the disc in my left jaw was displaced and put me in a hard splint. Instead of helping, it caused my condition to deteriorate further. After wearing the splint for a few weeks I could only open my mouth about a half an inch.
My dentist did not have any other suggestions or solutions. He was not able to give me any hope of relief, much less a cure. It seemed no one could help me, but I continued to pray that somehow I would find relief. I had to find someone who specialized in TMJ.
I began searching the internet and truly believe it was not by chance that I came across Dr. Abeles’ website. I was at the end of my rope physically and emotionally. It’s hard to imagine how chronic pain can wear on you unless you live with this kind of debilitating pain. As I read the information about Dr. Abeles and what he did, I felt this information was posted just for my benefit! I knew I had to make an appointment immediately.
After six months of living in constant pain, I had my consultation with Dr. Abeles. He correctly diagnosed that my jaw was out of position. I began what I like to call my “healing” process and received my first orthotic. It did not take long for me to see positive results. Still, I wondered if there was a quicker, easier fix out there – surgery maybe? (I cannot begin why I even wanted that option, but I blame it on all the debilitating pain.)
Wanting a second opinion, I made an appointment with the Chief of Oral Surgery at one of the most reputable hospitals in Atlanta. He ordered an MRI and full cranial x-rays. He listened to my story along with Dr. Abeles’ diagnosis and plan to get my jaw in a more comfortable position. Without hesitation, he said that surgery is rarely effective for TMJ and that Dr. Abeles’ plan was exactly what I needed.
Of course, I immediately went back to Dr. Abeles and told them I was ready to continue the process. Dr. Abeles, Angie and his other staff members have always been there for me. They are knowledgeable, compassionate and genuinely concerned for my well-being. That first visit was over four years ago. The rest, as they say, is history.
I am happy to report that four years later, I am still well. I avoid steak and other “tough” foods, but that is a small price to pay to live pain free and get my life back.*
– Lisa Cook
“…give Doc Abeles and his staff a chance to change your life.”
I went to see doc for facial pain and headaches. After several months of treatment, symptoms were greatly improved and facial pain was ninety to ninety-five percent gone.
Nurses are great and very professional. Doc Abeles is very informed about the whole process. I would recommend anyone with head pain to give Doc Abeles and his staff a chance to change your life.*
– Andy Baldwin
“In less than a year my TMJ pain was non-existent.”
I have struggled with TMJ pain for years. Utilizing NSAID’s and a night guard throughout the years helped to treat the symptoms, but never fixed the actual problem.
After a simple dental procedure my TMJ pain catapulted to a whole new level. I was in constant pain. I was popping NSAID’s like candy just to function.
I had to wake up in the middle of the night to take more pills and sleep with an ice pack.
I went to the Atlanta Center for TMJ and after the first few weeks in my new bite appliance my pain dropped significantly. I was able to come off the NSAID’s completely.
In less than a year my TMJ pain was non-existent. If it were not for Dr. Abeles, Angie and the wonderful staff there I would still be going through life in unmanageable pain.
– Shelain Cooksy
“I love them all and I’m confident that I’m receiving the finest care available anywhere.”
Unfortunately I was involved in a car accident recently and as a result my jaw began popping every time I opened my mouth. Sometimes my jaw would lock in a semi-closed position and it became sore and inflamed. The muscles on the side of my neck hurt and were tight. My back muscles “chimed in” too.
Sleep became disrupted because it was difficult to find a position that was comfortable anymore. This went on for months and I tried lots of painkillers but couldn’t remedy the problem myself.
After about four months had passed, the pain and lack of sleep began to take their toll on me. I knew I needed help but I didn’t know who to see. I began asking everyone I ran into if they knew a great doctor who could help me. Finally, another dentist referred me to Dr. Fred Abeles. This turned out to be one great referral.
He was able to resolve my pain and problems in just a few visits. I am now back to normal with no pain.
It’s obvious to me that Dr. Abeles strives to have a unique level of care for his patients. He is the only doctor who has ever given me his home number just in case I had a problem after hours. It’s not unusual for him to follow up by phone just to be sure I’m doing ok. He genuinely cares. I’ve never encountered anyone like him.
His support staff is equally amazing. Angie, Cindy and Rhona add so much to my visits. It’s more like a reunion with old friends than a therapy appointment. I love them all and I’m confident that I’m receiving the finest care available anywhere.*
– Carrie McEllen
“These guys are awesome!”
I have been helped so much by Dr. Abeles and his team! My quality of life, when it comes to eating and sleeping, has improved significantly thanks to their help.
They were very familiar with my rare connective tissue disorder known as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, which has helped me immensely with dealing with some of my symptoms.
These guys are awesome!*
– Chase Weston
“I highly recommend Dr. Abeles and his magnificent staff!”
Jaw popping and clicking went on year after year, sometimes loud enough to be heard across the room. After being told by three different dentists that, “everything was alright” one day the pain began. It went from minor to significant in a matter of days.
My mouth stopped opening fully. Eating even soft foods brought tears.
Fortunately, I found Dr. Abeles. And after three months of treatment I am seeing a future that involves eating and sleeping without pain. If you know someone who pops and clicks – tell them, “It is not alright.”
Ask them to seek help and hopefully they can avoid some of the extreme pain of continued wear and tear on their TMJ.
I highly recommend Dr. Abeles and his magnificent staff!*
– Melissa Clark
“My quality of life has improved dramatically…”
Over the course of a year or so, my jaw clicking gradually got worse along with my facial pain, sinus pressure, morning headaches and stuffy ears. These symptoms left me always tired, groggy and unable to focus on tasks at work.
I met with two TMJ specialists and ultimately chose Dr. Abeles for his extensive knowledge on TMJ, professionalism and quality of services provided.
Within a month or two of starting treatment with Dr. Abeles and Angie, my facial pain and constant sinus pressure subsided. I was no longer getting morning headaches, my ears were less stuffy and my jaw no longer clicked when opened.
My quality of life has been improved dramatically and I no longer feel tired all the time. It’s a big decision to seek out and invest in TMJ treatment, but I consider it an investment in my health and well-being and I’m very happy with my end result.*
– Sarah Roppoli
“They all really love what they do and it shows!”
I suffered from TMJ pain for over 30 years before coming to Dr. Abeles. Dozens of dentists, whose answer and solution was always a night-time mouth guard, failed to notice my overbite.
Dr. Abeles informed me on my first visit that my overbite and jaw misalignment were the root cause of my pain.
After getting my appliance I noticed an immediate improvement – no more stabbing pain, no more clicking and popping and I was no longer waking up with a headache every morning.
Angie is an amazing technician and takes great pride in the care she provides her patients. She’s funny too! I have never seen her and not laughed at some point during our time together.
Dr. Abeles and his entire office provide world-class care in everything they do. They all really love what they do and it shows!
I highly recommend Dr. Abeles – you will not regret it.*
– Erin McFadden
“Not only is the process here amazing… but I love the people here.”
When I first came to Dr. Abeles in the fall of 2016, my jaw was totally locked. Basic activities like eating and brushing my teeth were difficult because of how little I could open my mouth.
I had been to one specialist before with no change. But getting an appliance and working with the people at Dr. Abeles’ practice brought me a great amount of success very quickly.
Now, I can open my mouth much further and I’m nearly back to where I was before any TMJ symptoms. Not only is the process here amazing… but I love the people here. Working with Angie has been a joy!*
– Anna Haas
“He helped me from the first day.”
I have been a patient of Dr. Abeles for several months. I had TMJ for some time and I had tried other doctors but had no success. Dr. Abeles took me in and began his treatment. He helped me from the first day. His staff has been great, helping with each step. My TMJ pain is gone, my bite is straight and I am ready for a new partial denture.
I can’t praise them enough for the work they did for me. I would recommend them to anyone with TMJ problems.*
– Joy Littlejohn
“After completing therapy my life is completely changed.”
When I first came to the Atlanta Center for TMJ, I could not open my mouth. My jaw was completely locked. After my second visit I could already see a big difference.
After completing therapy my life is completely changed. I look forward to coming in each month and seeing Angie and Dr. Abeles. They are great!!
No more headaches or pain in my jaw. I am so glad I found the Atlanta Center for TMJ.*
– Amanda Anglin
“My high expectations were met with Dr. Abeles”
Due to the high probability of unsuccessful pain management from TMJ surgery, I spent many sleepless nights trying to find an alternative solution.
After the initial consultation with Dr. Abeles and his team, I knew I was going to get the best treatment possible.
My high expectations were met with Dr. Abeles in the quality and uniqueness of his alternative TMJ treatment. I would recommend the Atlanta Center for TMJ to anyone.*
– Wesley Crafton
“I love Angie.”
My symptoms began over three years ago. They were comprised of ear canal area pain, ears popping, long muscles of the neck strained and painful. I went to two ENT doctors who checked my ears with many tests – no results, no answers.
I diagnosed myself through internet search, which led me to Dr. Abeles. Fortunately, I was able to get an appointment fairly quickly and the healing began.
Dr. Abeles immediately recognized my problem, gave me his book and my options. We are doing great. I’m a happy camper.
Angie has taken such time and care with me, with Dr. Abeles following up on every visit. She is a great listener and she has a terrific knowledge of the everyday problems of her field.
I think I’m nearly there and final choices are coming soon. The whole staff is professional and caring. I love Angie.*
– Anne Hayes
“They have done wonders for my pain.”
For years I had struggled with TMJ and pain in my jaw with no help from traditional dentists. Luckily, at a cleaning appointment, I had a fill-in hygienist who told me about the Las Vegas Institute and their methods for relief of TMJ.
From their website I discovered Dr. Abeles and his staff. They have done wonders for my pain. Almost immediately upon having my appliance, my pain and discomfort receded.
They have done an amazing job with the support and follow up and I look forward to a continued pain-free and click-free jaw.*
– Chris Coffee
“I’m free of the headaches, I can eat what I want and I’m back to being myself.”
I had been having headaches for many years before coming to the Atlanta Center for TMJ. I had seen many doctors, trying to find out why.
I had surgery for a deviated septum and turbinate surgery. I went to allergy specialists and tried many medications, etc. I was unable to open my jaw more than a sliver or even take a bite of an apple.
I was finally diagnosed with TMJ.
Now, I’m free of the headaches, I can eat what I want and I’m back to being myself.*
– Lynn Appleget
“Dr. Abeles and his team are excellent!”
After years of pain and aggravation with my TMJ and jaw, I’m finally getting relief due to the knowledge of Dr. Abeles and his staff. Angie and Rhona are great and are always helpful and a pleasure to be around. Dr. Abeles and his team are excellent!*
– Brooke England
“The staff has been beyond incredible to work with…”
I’m blessed to have found Dr. Abeles and his staff at the Atlanta Center for TMJ. I came in six months ago with debilitating migraines.
This far into the journey of treatment I feel significantly better. The staff has been beyond incredible to work with me each and every visit. My case was a little unique since I have had neck surgery many years ago and have an impaired bone and joint condition.
But Dr. Abeles and his staff were honest from the beginning as to how they believed they could help me find relief in the midst of a complex situation. Thank you all so much!*
– Caroline Schuler
“From day one of treatment I could tell this was going to work.”
I came to Dr. Abeles from Augusta, Georgia. I had constant clicking, which was very embarrassing for me to eat around others.
From day one of treatment I could tell this was going to work. It was tough for the first few weeks but the staff made me completely aware of what to expect with any soreness during treatment.
Everything they educated me on was right on the money. I am now click-free, pain-free and jaw fatigue-free. His treatment absolutely works and the physical therapy is amazing.
The staff was amazing and over-accommodating for my long drive and many late arrivals for appointments.*
– Hope Wilson
“I have had more relief than I’ve ever had since being diagnosed in 2006.”
When I was a sophomore in high school I began having frequent migraines. After seeing many doctors I found out I had TMJ. Since I’ve worn my new appliance from Dr. Abeles I have had more relief than I’ve ever had since being diagnosed in 2006. My headaches are not a part of my daily life now.
I have found this office to be so much more helpful, understanding, caring and compassionate. Having people like Angie and Dr. Abeles who take care of me makes this experience more enjoyable than anything I’ve gone through.
To wake up every day and wonder what time I would be getting a headache is more a thing of the past. Now I can wake up and go about a normal life since my new appliance. I can’t wait for the final changes in this process.*
– Jodi Emms
“The care and concern by the entire staff, especially Angie was exceptional!”
I was experiencing headaches and neck pain. I I did my own research as well as being referred to Dr. Abeles by my dentist.
My pain was significantly reduced shortly after starting my therapy and continued to get better and better. The care and concern by the entire staff, especially Angie was exceptional!
Anyone experiencing jaw issues should not hesitate to make a visit to Dr. Abeles and the Atlanta Center for TMJ. You won’t be disappointed.*
– Shannon Whitfield
“…the pain is completely gone.”
I have been having jaw pain for years and finally got to the point of not being able to fully open my mouth. I have been a patient of Dr. Abeles for four months now and the pain is completely gone and I can now open my mouth and have full mobility of my jaw.*
– Rhonda Vaughn
“Angie is amazing!”
Angie is amazing! I came to this office with headaches, migraines and a jaw that was constantly clenched. Angie was always patient, helpful, understanding and persistent.
She took the time to figure out why I wasn’t getting better.
After one visit, they made a drastic change that improved my TMJ immensely. If it weren’t for Angie I would be in constant pain. Thank you Angie for being amazing!
The team at Dr. Abeles’ office is awesome. They are all very friendly and truly want to help you get better. Thank you Dr. Abeles, Angie, Becky, Cindy and Sandra!*
– Cyndi Cox
“While pricey, the relief is worth every penny.”
After ruling out ear infection and dental problems, my dentist directed me to Dr. Abeles at the Atlanta Center for TMJ. After discussion and examination, treatment options and payments were discussed.
While pricey, the relief is worth every penny. The staff is friendly and comforting. An open mind and following their instructions are key to improvement and success.*
– Stephanie LeBlanc
“I can’t praise the staff here enough…”
I can’t praise the staff here at the Atlanta Center for TMJ enough for their expertise in making my visits a pleasure. When I first came for a visit, I had spent several years with a constant pop and grinding in my right jaw joint.
After meeting with Dr. Abeles and having tests done, I decided to try the orthotic appliance. After four months I can say I no longer have the issues that I had before and I’m able to eat, sleep, talk and enjoy myself with my appliance on a daily basis. I can only describe it as a wonderful experience.*
– Deborah Crofts
“The team is AMAZING!”
I have truly enjoyed my experience at the Atlanta Center for TMJ. I came in completely locked, barely able to open my mouth to talk or eat.
They were honest about my situation and with no pressure, explained very thoroughly what was going on with my jaw and their program to fix it. Surgery was never an option for me. Although this was a lengthier process, it was natural.
The team is AMAZING! So caring and friendly. They make you feel comfortable and always let you know what’s next. TMJ dysfunction is not fun, but they made the recovery manageable. Thanks!*
– Alex McEwen
“My results from treatment have been fantastic.”
20 years ago I sustained a right jaw injury playing sports that resulted in a ‘jaw click’ on my right side. It was not painful until about a year ago.
After interviewing four dentists and TMJ specialists, my wife and I chose Dr. Abeles. My results from treatment have been fantastic.
Dr. Abeles and his staff have been excellent to work with, caring, supportive and informative during every step of my treatment. I can’t thank them enough for everything they’ve done over the past year.*
– Dan Paley
“I’m extremely thankful for a means to overcome the pain.”
After dealing with ear pain for over a year, doctor’s visits for possible ear infections and dentist appointments for toothaches I finally started researching TMJ.
That led me to a local specialist and a second opinion by Dr. Abeles. After my initial consultation I felt confident in Dr. Abeles’ knowledge and began my treatment.
Within the first month of having an appliance my ear pain was completely gone. I’m extremely thankful for a means to overcome the pain and look forward to continuing the healing process.*
– Justin Krivanek
“I am now free of all symptoms!”
Before treatment I had severe neck and shoulder pain along with pressure in my ears and facial pain. I was unable to put two fingers in my mouth when opening.
I am now free of all symptoms! I’m able to eat with no pain, no popping and no shoulder or neck pain.*
– Bethany Renner
“Dr. Abeles and his staff have been amazing!”
Dr. Abeles and his staff have been amazing! They are very professional and make my visits a joy.
My symptoms have greatly improved or gone away completely. I would highly recommend the Atlanta Center for TMJ to anyone with TMJ symptoms.*

“I was taking Advil daily. Now I’m not taking it at all.”
I was having very bad headaches and constant ear pain for several years. When I finally discovered it was TMJ and went to Dr. Abeles, I quickly began to feel better.
I was taking Advil daily. Now I’m not taking it at all. All of the ladies at Dr. Abeles’ office are so helpful and make you feel so comfortable all of the time.*
– Elizabeth Cape
“I look forward to my visits!”
I was having headaches. My headaches have subsided since coming to the Atlanta Center for TMJ. Angie is the best and has helped me through this difficult period with her positive attitude, ability to answer all my questions and giving me encouragement. As a former TMJ patient, she can understand what I’m going through. I look forward to my visits!*
– Chris Walling
“I’m happy to say I’m completely pain free…”
I was suffering from severe pain in my jaws, accompanied by popping in the joints and occasional locking of the joint. I was placed in a device prescribed by my dentist. When that did not help he referred me to Dr. Abeles.
With the excellent treatment of Dr. Abeles and Angie, his highly qualified right-hand, top-notch assistant, I’m happy to say I’m completely pain free with no popping or clicking at all!
Thank you Angie and Dr. Abeles for your care!*
– Norma Williams
“The nicest man I ever met in my life!”
I had a partial denture for years and it broke. I went to a dentist and they made me a new one that wasn’t made correctly. It was too high on one side.
I went back but they could not fix my bite properly. Two days later, after popping constantly, my right joint dislocated and I couldn’t open my mouth. And my bite was shifted to the left.
Then I found Dr. Abeles and he was a Godsend. The nicest man I ever met in my life!
His staff is great. And now I’m ready for a new pain-free partial denture!*
– Betty McElwaney
“Angie is a true Godsend…”
About six months ago I called Dr. Abeles’ office and this lady named, Angie picked up the phone. I began to pour my heart out about the anxiety, pain and how much my life was in turmoil from the headaches, ringing in my ears and stress I was facing.
I asked her after seeing five different dentists, five appliances and being at my wits end – was there anything she felt they could do for me. She instantly told me she understood and after hearing her for about ten minutes, I could tell this lady truly understood and I immediately felt I could trust her and made the appointment.
When I came in, I did feel a bit uncertain about my outcome but the staff could not have shown more caring, concern and patience. Each visit, Angie made me feel less stress and built my confidence in conquering this awful condition.
There are not enough kind words I can say about Angie. Had it not been from talking to her at that initial call and her talking me through each appointment, I would have given up. I can say I’m glad I didn’t.
While the ringing in my ears isn’t completely gone, I am so much better and I have some good days now. I would whole-heartedly recommend the place to anyone having TMJ or ringing in the ears.
Angie is a true Godsend and a blessing to dentistry. Angie, thank you!*
– Florence Thomas
“I can actually enjoy my life again.”
When I first came to see Dr. Abeles, I was having migraine headaches every day. I knew I had TMJ and I had to do something about it. I had no quality of life. Now, four months later, I’m getting my life back. My neck pain is gone and I don’t have headaches most days. I can actually enjoy my life again. Thank you!*
– Bambi Perdue
“A huge thanks to Dr. Abeles and his amazing staff for the wonderful experience…”
I started having problems with my TMJ after a visit to a dentist where they did a few fillings on the first appointment and a deep dental cleaning on the second appointment.
My jaw started to pop on my left side and I was having pain when chewing. I went back to the same dentist hoping they could do something, but the only thing they tried was polishing my fillings and that didn’t help.
My symptoms worsened and I was having an incredible amount of pain in my left ear, especially when chewing. It became difficult and painful to open my mouth. My jaw was popping and clicking.
My face felt fatigued and even sleeping was now difficult.
After doing online research we found Dr. Abeles and decided to get a consultation. I decided to accept treatment and I am so happy with how much my pain has improved.
I no longer have that terrible ear pain when chewing and opening my mouth. And my jaw has stopped clicking and popping.
I have to give a huge thanks to Dr. Abeles and his amazing staff for the wonderful experience I’ve had since starting treatment.*

“I will always be grateful!”
Words can’t express what a difference that you all have made. Thank you for all you do for so many! I will always be grateful!*

“I’ve had a 90% improvement in my headaches, facial and neck pain.”
I came in with a prior diagnosis of TMJ and joint degeneration on both sides. My symptoms included headaches in the back of my head, neck pain and limited opening of my mouth.
I was planning to replace an upper partial denture that I’ve had for thirty years with implants. But I felt the bite needed to be improved first to prevent further damage to the joints.
I found Dr. Abeles and the Atlanta Center for TMJ while researching TMJ. I felt his treatment protocol was the right path for me.
They adjusted my partial denture in concert with their bite appliance to achieve a good, solid bite. Over six to seven months, I’ve had a 90% improvement in my headaches, facial and neck pain.
Dr. Abeles and his staff are the most professional, yet personable of any medical staff I have ever experienced. I felt very safe in their care.*

“I’M EXTREMELY GRATEFUL FOR DR. ABELES AND HIS AWESOME CREW”
I was in terrible pain, having tried several doctors to help me. Finally, I found Dr. Abeles.
I called immediately and they were so kind and helpful. I started feeling fifty-percent better within a few weeks.
I am now relatively pain-free, continuing to improve and I’m extremely grateful for Dr. Abeles and his awesome crew.*

“I am finally able to eat, sleep and yawn without pain.”
I was referred to Dr. Abeles because of my TMJ issues. I have been dealing with the pain in my jaw for over twenty years. I was very skeptical but I was tired of the pain and headaches.
I am finally able to eat, sleep and yawn without pain. The staff is amazing and funny. The entire staff is very attentive to your needs. They take time with each patient to ensure they are comfortable.
– Laura Barber
“I’m really glad I chose his clinic.”
When I first visited Dr. Abeles’ office I could only open my mouth less than an inch. I felt pain in my jaw and heard clicking sounds when I opened.
After a month of treatment in his clinic, my mouth started opening normally. I was surprised and really happy that my symptoms were gone.
Dr. Abeles and his staff are all friendly and professional. I’m really glad I chose his clinic.*
– Mariko Matsuura
“Angie is the best!”
My appliance is my best friend. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without the expertise of the office of Dr. Abeles. They keep my headaches and jaw pain away. Oh, and Angie is the best!*
– Kara Francisco
“I am so grateful to have found Dr. Abeles and his staff…”
I am so grateful to have found Dr. Abeles and his staff after suffering with TMJ jaw pain for years. It reached the point where I was placing my husband’s Lidocaine patches on my neck and jaw at night.
After about six months of treatment the pain subsided, no more clicking in my jaw joint or headaches from TMJ. Dr. Abeles and his staff are professional, well trained and personable. And important to me – they are willing to go beyond in explaining and educating me on the process. Thank you!*
– Debbie Budd
“Your service is truly the best!”

“They are lifesavers!”
I have spent the past ten years dealing with clicking, popping and locking. And in just a few months of working with Dr. Abeles and Angie I can now open and shut my mouth with no problem. They are lifesavers! I highly recommend people with TMJ issues try out their office.*
– Kayla Mehalick
“I am so thankful to have found Dr. Abeles!”
I came to Dr. Abeles with so much pain. My ears, jaw joints, head and shoulders all felt horrible. There are no words to express my pain.
30 years ago, a doctor told me I had TMJ but there was nothing he could do to help me. I finally was sent to a dentist three years ago. The assistance he gave me did very little for my pain but he did get $2100 for his services.
We moved to Atlanta in May of 2018. My husband started a search for a TMJ specialist and now, here I am.
My jaw joint doesn’t click anymore and I can open my mouth and close it without being out of my chair trying to close it!
The fee for these services I’ve received has been worth every penny. I am so thankful to have found Dr. Abeles!*
– Sandra Griffin
“I just want to thank Dr. Abeles, Rhona and Angie for providing a service and product I thought could never happen.”
I just want to express my excitement with the result that Dr. Abeles and his staff have done for me. Without a doubt I am happy now. The dentist back home said I would need major surgery on my jaw and I wasn’t prepared to do that.
I went on the internet and came across Dr. Abeles’ site. The rest is history, as they say. Even after my first visit with Dr. Abeles I still didn’t believe he would be able to help me. I was so wrong.
The experience is like nothing I have had in the past. I never thought this procedure would be so painless. It is safe to say I will never regret taking this very big step in my life. I just want to thank Dr. Abeles, Rhona and Angie for providing a service and product I thought could never happen.*
– Anthony De Silva
“I would recommend them to anyone experiencing TMJ symptoms.”
Dr. Abeles and his staff were fantastic. I came into their office experiencing significant jaw, neck and shoulder pain and fatigue. The pain was affecting my ability to function at a high level.
Coming in, I knew very little about TMJ and they did a great job of educating me. The treatment plan was effective and after a short time I started feeling much better.
I would recommend them to anyone experiencing TMJ symptoms.*
– Wyatt Anderson
“The work Dr. Abeles has done has positively transformed my life.”
The work Dr. Abeles has done has positively transformed my life. I can honestly say there are few things in life that can deliver such an effect in one’s life. Thank you Dr. Abeles for sharing your wonderful artistry.*
– Sonya Rodrigez
I’ve experienced moderate to high pain in my head and jaw for over ten years and very little helped alleviate the pain. By the end, after dietary changes, supplements, muscle relaxants and TMJ treatment, I have almost no high pain days anymore and the medium pain days are less frequent.
– Benjamin Adams
“The office instantly made me feel safe.”
Before I came to the Atlanta Center for TMJ, I was experiencing significant pain in my left TMJ joint. I was unable to open my mouth and experiencing clicking and grating sounds in the joint.
When I visited this office, I was welcomed with warm arms. The office instantly made me feel safe. The excellent staff worked with me so I was able to get the best possible treatment.
Dr. Abeles’ treatment plan significantly helped my TMJ issue. As of this day, I do not experience any discomfort in my joints wearing Dr. Abeles’ aligner.*
– Evan Wilkins
“Now I’m eating and smiling again!”
I have had problems with my jaw for twenty years. I tried braces and so many other options to get over my pain and locking of my jaw.
Eventually, I just locked up completely. I tried everything to get it open and nothing worked. I felt like there was just no hope left.
I found Dr. Abeles online and decided that this has to be my last chance for help. The office staff was wonderful and the doctor gave me hope.
I started wearing my new mouthpiece and within a week I was feeling so much better. Angie, my nurse, has seen me through it all. She was wonderful.
Now I’m eating and smiling again! This is just the beginning…*
– Renee Dansby
I am so glad I found Dr. Abeles. I have told everyone about his and the staff’s work ethic. “Pure perfection” are the words I use. It was well worth it. Thanks so much!*
– Venita Howell
“I’m without pain and my other health-related concerns are gone.”
I completed my TMJ treatment at the Atlanta Center for TMJ and it’s been a great experience. I’d been told for years I have a small mouth, but that was always the end of the conversation.
Then I went to a new dentist who said I probably have TMJ. So I was finally able to get an answer. After coming to Dr. Abeles’ office I also found out some other health concerns I was having were because of my TMJ.
Now my mouth opens to a normal range, I’m without pain and my other health-related concerns are gone. Everyone at the office was great, so considerate and made coming there a pleasant experience.*
– Payton Pritchard
“I’M SO GLAD I FOUND HIM.”
About fifteen years ago, I started having neck, back and shoulder pain along with headaches. I went to all kinds of doctors and they basically said it was just stress causing all of it. They made me feel crazy like it was just in my head.
As time went on my jaws started hurting along with ear pain, ringing in the ears and other issues. I knew I wasn’t crazy. I saw Dr. Abeles and told him all my issues.
I’m so glad I found him. They have helped me so much and are amazing. They even make me feel like family and so very comfortable.*
– Lendy Lowe
“I feel great!”
I was having a lot of pain in my neck and jaw from teeth grinding and clenching. I found Dr. Abeles after searching the internet and have had a great experience! My pain is almost completely gone and I feel great! Would definitely recommend.*
– Becky Shaul
“He and his wonderful staff were amazing in the caring and attention they provided.”
I came to Dr. Abeles’ practice with significant difficulty eating, including problems opening wide enough, uncomfortable grinding sounds and pain. Dr. Abeles did a great job of educating me on the issues involved with my problem and the recommended course of treatment.
He and his wonderful staff continued this education and were amazing in the caring and attention they provided. After three months I have seen great improvement and would definitely recommend this practice for TMJ dysfunction.*
– Anna Robertson
“He wasn’t like the other specialists…”
I was suffering from a constant tightness in the back of my head. I chose Dr. Abeles because he really took the time to explain what TMJ was to me. He wasn’t like the other specialists who would not discuss treatment but would discuss their hefty fee. The staff was great and Angie Rocks!*
– Mitchell Paasch
“Three months of treatment – pain free…”
Three months of treatment – pain free, greater neck range of motion and I can open my mouth without pain! Angie is professional, knowledgeable and made my visits fun and personable.*
– Susan Mashburn
“Slow and steady is truly the way to health as Dr. Abeles has developed.”
It was daunting to have extreme TMJ pain that kept me awake at night and feeling my only option was pain medication.
Finding Dr. Abeles and his staff is the one thing that has lowered the pain considerably to almost normality and restored my quality of life, medication-free.
No one can know for sure in advance if a treatment will work. But I recommend trying this before being hooked on meds. Slow and steady is truly the way to health as Dr. Abeles has developed.*
– Dawn Randolph
“After treatment my symptoms have dramatically improved…”
Prior to finding the Atlanta Center for TMJ, my TMJ caused me vertigo and lots of pain. After treatment my symptoms have dramatically improved and lead to an improvement in my quality of life.
The staff at Dr. Abeles’ office were candid, knowledgeable and great to work with. I have only positive things to say about my experience and would highly recommend the Atlanta Center for TMJ to anyone battling with TMJ.*
– John Landau
“Finally, I had an answer and what’s more, a road to recovery…”
I had been suffering with increasing bouts of dizziness for about six months and could find no answer for the cause. It wasn’t until I had a consultation with the Atlanta Center for TMJ that I discovered my whole bite was out of position and was affecting not only my jaw, but my head and neck posture as well.
Finally, I had an answer and what’s more, a road to recovery and treatment specially designed to specifically target the cause of my TMJ.
The whole staff at the Atlanta Center for TMJ was wonderful in explaining the process, realigning my bite and initiating the program that would get me back to feeling like myself again.
Most people dread going to a dental clinic but for the first time I was actually looking forward to appointments because the care was so great!!*
– Anthony Abbott
“I’m so thankful I’m no longer in pain.”
I was experiencing stiffness in my jaws and having a difficult time opening my mouth. I had frequent headaches and frequent popping and clicking in my jaws when I ate. But the worst pain was in my ears. I came to find out this pain was caused by TMJ.
My dentist wanted to put crowns on all of my back teeth. But I decided to find a TMJ specialist after researching jaw stiffness, jaw pain and ear pain.
I found a TMJ dentist close to my home and made an appointment for a consultation. But then after more research, I found Dr. Abeles and the Atlanta Center for TMJ.
I was impressed by the many accolades and the fact he’d been on Dr. Oz. I cancelled my first consultation appointment after coming to see Dr. Abeles. Although it was a greater distance to travel, I knew Dr. Abeles and his staff were the experts that could solve the issues causing me so much pain.
Everyone in the practice is so personable and professional. I’m so thankful I’m no longer in pain.*
– Bettina Surls
“I did take a little time to get used to the aligner… but it works!”
I was having headaches daily, all day long. It was hard for me to eat solid foods. I had seen one dentist before Dr. Abeles and I spent a lot of money and time to get no results.
One day I was looking online and I came across The Atlanta Center for TMJ website and read the reviews. I knew it wouldn’t hurt to at least have a consultation and see what they had to say.
Dr. Abeles was very polite, explained everything in detail to where I understood what was going on and why.
I did take a little time to get used to the aligner… but it works! I would strongly recommend Dr. Abeles for any TMJ problems.*
– Wimberly Thomas
“My symptoms are now gone, not just improved.”
I’m thankful my doctor referred me to see Dr. Abeles when I was having extreme pain opening my mouth. Wearing his mouthguard seems so simple yet it gave me the relief I needed. His staff is engaged and made the visits a pleasure. My symptoms are now gone, not just improved.*
– Patricia Hein
“This is definitely worth investigating…”
The treatment alleviated the vast majority of my headaches! This is definitely worth investigating if you get frequent headaches and dislike taking medications as much as I do. Thanks to Angie and Dr. Abeles!*
– Holly Capps
“No clicking or pain!”
For several years I had clicking and pain in my jaw. I had migraines and pain in my teeth. My dentist would try to get my bite right but it never worked.
My daughter heard about Dr. Abeles and suggested I visit.
At first the treatment sounded like it would be impossible and take a year of my life. Could I do this? I’m 76 years old.
Well, after eight months with a pleasant and happy staff… I made it. No clicking or pain!
Thank you Dr. Abeles and special staff!*
– Vickie Whitman
“You will love this group’s bedside manner…”
I am pleased to recommend Dr. Abeles’ practice, The Atlanta Center for TMJ.
This practice has helped me through my TMJ journey. As a cancer survivor, I followed my doctor’s orders, and you will see that following the plan Dr. Abeles and his team puts in place for you will correct whatever chronic pain you may be experiencing.
Oh, and did I mention, you will love this group’s bedside manner? From your initial call with Sandra to set up your consultation to your plan of action with Dr. Abeles himself to the execution of treatment from his team of technicians.*
– Tawnya Nails
“I would highly recommend the Atlanta Center for TMJ.”
I had a great experience after two previous failed attempts to fix and heal my jaw. I had a dramatic improvement in my clicking and popping. The office was very professional and accommodating to my ability to travel to Atlanta. I would highly recommend the Atlanta Center for TMJ.*
– April Petersen
“I’m now back to singing full time…”
When I was eighteen, I was told I should address my TMJ because of the jaw popping I had been having my whole life. I didn’t.
Three years later I called Dr. Abeles in a panic after my jaw locked up entirely. As a choral music education major, my livelihood is based on my ability to open my mouth and sing.
As terrified as I was… they held my hand throughout the entire process, getting my jaw unlocked, getting my bite appliance and all that followed.
I’m now back to singing full time and the appliance is just a very small part of life now. *
– Mary Allison Hamby
“I LOVE DR. ABELES AND HIS STAFF!”
I love Dr. Abeles and his staff! They’re all so warm and friendly. I always feel comfortable.
I’d reached a point with my TMJ that I knew I had to do something. I searched the internet and found the Atlanta Center for TMJ.
There are very few doctors who deal with this issue. He does. And not only understands it… but knows how to fix it. Every stage of therapy made total sense. I’m now several months into my therapy and very pleased with my progress.*
– Pat Pittman
“I am so grateful to have met these awesome people to provide the solution.”
A few years ago, I had braces and started noticing that my jaw would pop and click. But I was told it was okay and normal. After a while it got worse. I had switched over to a new dentist and he informed me that it was not okay and needed to be fixed as soon as possible.
He then told me about Dr. Abeles and we made an appointment to find out what was going on and why this was happening.
After many trips to Atlanta, my jaw became one hundred percent better and I no longer have any problems. I am so grateful to have met these awesome people to provide the solution.*
– Kayla Roberds
“With treatment, I am so much better.”
I have received wonderful treatment from Dr. Abeles and his staff for my TMJ. I was having trouble with jaw pain, difficulty eating, jaw swelling, headaches and earaches.
With treatment, I am so much better. Appointments are easy to schedule and his staff is very respectful and helpful. *
– Cindy Davenport RN
“Great patient care!”
I had TMJ problems since the 90’s. Problems opening my mouth fully without popping, cracking and pain.
I’ve had a great experience with Dr. Abeles, Angie, Sandra and all the staff at the Atlanta Center for TMJ. I would highly recommend them all to everyone that has TMJ pain and headaches. Great patient care!*
– Patricia Morris
“I can live life a little better than before.”
Sincere gratitude and thanks to Dr. Abeles and the Atlanta Center for TMJ staff. I found the center online after reading testimonials which sounded “like me.” I can live life a little better than before. I’m very appreciative of the TMJ therapy.*
– LaPorshia Newell
“The pain went away within a month.”
I was at the point that I lost hope I would ever be out of pain. I had a cavity filling that threw off my bite and that caused extreme pain for over a year.
My original dentist just told me to wear a night guard that would take care of the pain but it never did. I desperately searched the internet for someone who could help me. That’s how I found Dr. Abeles and the Atlanta Center for TMJ.
The pain went away within a month. I honestly thought I would have to live with the pain the rest of my life until I got this treatment. *
– Amanda Saurin
“What a joy!”
What Dr. Abeles work has meant to me: It has given me a confidence that I did not know I possessed. I’m delighted and excited about what life may hold for me now. What a joy!*
– Johnny Bruce
“…the charges for this amazing treatment are absolutely appropriate for the tremendous support you receive from everyone at Dr. Abeles’ practice.”
Before I went to Dr. Abeles’ office I had joint popping on and off since my early 20’s. I had no idea these were early signs of TMJ problems. In my mid-30’s I started having joint popping that would not go away for about three years. I had daily headaches, ear ringing, irritability and pain chewing food.
In order to find help and relief from all the pain I was experiencing I consulted my dentist at the time. She wanted to do surgery, which scared me. From there I went to a TMJ center that offered intramuscular injections which is a big ‘no no’ for me. It can cause complications I was not willing to gamble on.
After more research, I found Dr. Abeles. His reputation in the TMJ community and the fact that he has taken on the role to approach TMJ treatment in a non-surgical and integrative approach convinced me to give it a try.
My experience in his practice, with him and his staff has been very good. I have had a great improvement in my symptoms and everyone has always treated me respectfully, educated me and taken all their time to make sure I get the treatment needed.
I also feel that the charges for this amazing treatment are absolutely appropriate for the tremendous support you receive from everyone at Dr. Abeles’ practice.*
