Dr. Marvin Pantangco, an expert dentist from the Center for Natural Dentistry in Encinitas, San Diego, CA, was in an interview with Doctor Relations’ health network recently, talking about TMJ disorders. Also known as TMD, the disorder has an effect on the temporomandibular joint. The jaw joint becomes misaligned.

In a report published by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, 5-12 % of the U.S. population is affected by TMD, the main cause of jaw pain in general. At 95 %, this disorder is mainly found in female patients. However, only two out of three people seek treatment. The pain caused by TMD may be mistaken for simple chronic headaches, but it is a serious condition.
“Many times, TMJ disorder is thought to be regular headaches, but seeking treatment before surgery becomes mandatory is important. The consequences of being negligent in acquiring the right TMD treatment are very real. Too much pain in the jaw joint and the muscles controlling jaw movement interferes with daily tasks and life,” said Dr. Marvin.
Over time, conditions get worse when problems are not identified at the first stages. TMD often begins with simple headaches. When there is lack of treatment, it may end up in unending jaw pain, recurring headaches and other bad effects.
In order to enable patients to begin treatment early enough, Dr. Marvin gives a free dental consultation, exam and X-rays. This also works as a second opinion for patients who have had a dentist suggest a certain treatment plan and want to have it reviewed.
At the interview, Dr. Marvin said that “it is important to get TMD diagnosed early to escape the need for surgery and start treatment with non-surgical procedures first.”
Dr. Marvin also gives 3D X-rays, which have 80% less radiation, in addition to sedation, ensuring that patients have a relaxed and painless dental experience.
“I value patient’s general health, and I want to assist in stopping headaches and jaw pain before it affects the whole body,” said Dr. Marvin. “Technological advancement has made it possible for those suffering from the effects of TMJ disorder to get various solutions at my office at any stage!”
“Dr. Marvin saved my life,” said K. H., one of his patients. “Dr. Marvin did two surgeries for cavitations throughout my jaw. My arthritis went into a beautiful remission. Everything about my digestive system has improved following Dr. Marvin’s dental work. Again, Dr. Marvin saved my life. There is simply no way to thank him enough.”
In addition to providing dental work at his office, Dr. Marvin also has organized community outreach programs, partnering with Feeding San Diego for food drives and other campaigns.
