Dr. Benjamin Wang, known as Dr. Ben to his Downtown Portland neighborhood, is a reputable dentist and owner of Centerport Dental. Recently, he was interviewed on Doctor Relations’ health network about TMJ dysfunction, also known as TMD. This disorder is connected with the temporomandibular joint, when the jaw joint has been misalignment, causing negative side effects that extend to systemic health.

In a report released by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, TMD affects 5-12% of the American population, and is the main reason behind jaw pain. 95% of the TMD patients are female. Nevertheless, just two out of three people seek treatment. It is a serious condition, but many mistake the pain associated with TMD for simple chronic headaches.
“While oftentimes TMJ disorder is assumed to be regular headaches, it is essential to seek out treatment before surgery becomes necessary. The consequences of negligence in getting the right TMD treatment can be severe. Sharp pain in the jaw joint and the muscles responsible for controlling jaw movement can interfere with daily activities and life,“ said Dr. Ben.
Conditions deteriorate over time when problems are not discovered at the early stages. TMD is often characterized by simple headaches at the beginning. If left untreated, it may result in chronic jaw pain, never-ending headaches and other undesirable effects.
Dr. Ben provides dental consultation, exam and X-rays at no cost to make sure that patients begin treatment as soon as possible. This also grants a second opinion to patients who were given a treatment plan by another dentist.
During the interview, he said, “It is proposed that TMD is diagnosed early since it plays a crucial role in escaping the need for surgery and begin treatment through non-surgical procedures first.”
Dr. Ben also provides 3D X-rays, containing up to 80% less radiation as well as sedation, giving patients a relaxed and painless dental visit experience.
“The patient’s general health is a priority for me, and I want to help in eradicating headaches and jaw pain before it adversely affects the whole body,” said Dr. Ben. “With technological advancements, those experiencing the consequences of TMJ disorder can access different solutions at my office at any stage!”
“I ABSOLUTELY recommend Dr. Wang to ANYONE who has had any kind of severity or bad experience. His personal work is very gentle, careful, precise and complete. He is genuinely in tune with each patient. Personally, I would not risk going to anyone else for me or another,” said Lucy M. Beyond providing dental care, Dr. Ben has organized community welfare programs, working with Portland Rescue Mission in food drives and other campaigns.
