The most recent research from the American and Canadian Academy of
Craniofacial Pain shows 5 – 15% of the North American population suffers
from pain associated with Temporomandibular disorder, more commonly
referred to as TMJ. At her Toronto cosmetic dentistry
practice, Susie Ang, DDS says dental practitioners must treat TMJ and
other common craniofacial disorders holistically to help patients truly
manage pain.

Dr. Ang says cosmetic dentistry procedures such as dental implants
and porcelain veneers in conjunction with TMJ treatment can eliminate
pain and create a gorgeous smile. She says medical research has
confirmed craniofacial disorders occur through readaptation and
neurological signaling errors related to common misalignment issues that
lead to TMJ. adding that because of her interest in craniofacial
dentistry, she is able to treat her patients from a unique, and more
informed perspective than traditional dentists. Once her patients’ pain
is under control, Dr. Ang says she promotes a preventative approach to
dental health to avoid future concerns and maintain long-lasting
function and comfort, while creating positive patient experiences.
