Toronto Cosmetic Dentistry with Dr. Susie Ang

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.
