Neuromuscular dentistry is concerned with the detection and treatment of craniofacial disorders such as TMJ. Hayward dentist Dr. Gary Fong has received special training in neuromuscular dentistry and is pleased to offer this important service individually or as part of your routine dental care.
Symptoms of TMJ may include:
- Clicking, popping, or grinding noises in the jaw
- Pain in the jaw, face, or head
- Difficulties chewing, biting, or opening the mouth
- Ear pain, sinus and eye pressure, and chronic headaches
If you are experiencing any of these issues, a neuromuscular dentistry evaluation from Dr. Fong can help establish the cause and provide the information needed for successful treatment. Only by addressing underlying neuromuscular issues can issues caused by TMJ and similar disorders be treated.
Neuromuscular dentistry treatments offered by Dr. Fong are tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual. Which options are best for your needs will be determined during your diagnostic evaluation.
If you are in need of a neuromuscular dentist, please contact Gary G. Fong, DDS today. Dr. Fong serves Hayward, Castro Valley, San Leonardo, and surrounding areas of California.
