The temporomandibular joint allows for the chewing and side-to-side motion of your lower jaw. When this joint becomes overworked or fatigued, it can cause a variety of problems that can be felt in your head, neck and shoulders, as well as other areas.

TMJ/TMD pain is often caused by clenching or grinding of the teeth. It can also be the result of an injury, such as a blow to the head or jaw. Misaligned teeth can cause TMJ/TMD pain as well. A thorough exam of the area and questions about your pain will help your dentist make an accurate diagnosis of the problem and lead to an effective treatment plan.

TMJ/TMD pain often resolves on its own. However, if you are experiencing this pain on a regular basis, a thorough examination of the joint is warranted. Treatment may be as simple as learning a few targeted exercises for the joint in cases of mild discomfort. More severe cases require more extensive treatment.

Jaw Pain, Facial Pain Relief!

Pain relief medication often eases the discomfort of TMJ/TMD discomfort. When this is not enough and exercises do not produce desired results, other options are available. A nightguard, which cushions the teeth while you sleep, prevents grinding and clenching.

Constant pressure from grinding your teeth, or bruxism, causes the jaw joints to become overworked. Clenching adds stress to the joints, and the constant pressure makes the joints fatigued. Since the joints are not able to rest and repair during sleep, the result is jaw pain and possible pain or discomfort in the head, neck and shoulders. Some individuals also experience pain in their ears or facial muscles.

Suffering with pain from TMJ/TMD is not necessary when an accurate diagnosis can identify the most effective treatment. Most treatments for this disorder are fairly simple and non-invasive. Contact Dr. Wang to schedule an appointment at Engineered Smiles to get relief from your jaw joint pain.

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
