The temporomandibular joint combines a hinge action with sliding motions. The parts of the bones that interact in the joint are covered with cartilage and are separated by a small shock-absorbing disk, which normally keeps the movement smooth. Sometimes, it clicks, which can be damaging, painful, or both.
Painful TMJ disorders can occur if: the disk erodes or moves out of its proper alignment, the joint's cartilage is damaged by arthritis or if the joint is damaged by a blow or other impact
Dr. Wong treats a range of joint problems with great success. The process is simple and patients often feel relief very quickly.
How often after leaving a dentist do you hear from your kids, “when is my next appointment mom?” I LOVE this dentist office and everyone in it.
Fantastic staff! Dr. Wong has the best professional personality! He gets to know his patients and their dental needs!
Everyone is kind, thorough, professional, and accommodating.
