Synopsis:  Do you or someone you know suffer from headaches, migraines, or other head pain?  Well you are not alone. Statistics Canada reports that a conservative estimate of 2.7 million Canadians suffer from diagnosed migraines.  The imbalance of forces that results in chronic pain and dysfunction in the head and neck area is termed dentomandibular sensorimotor dysfunction (DMSMD).  Caused by misalignment in the skull and mandible, it can result in problems with bite force, muscles, and joint balance.  We are going to explore the cause and effects of injuries on chronic head pain, and why dentists are the best and only health practitioner that can offer the comprehensive treatment for these patients.
The Clinician: Dr. Cheng Lun Wang, DDS, MSc, FRCD(C), is a Canadian Board Certified Specialist in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, and a member of American Lingual Orthodontic Association, and European Lingual Society of Orthodontists.  He is currently appointed as clinical assistant professor, graduate orthodontics program, at the University of British Columbia.  For the past 20 years, Dr. Wang has been in private practice with a particular interest in esthetic orthodontic treatment, featuring labial, lingual, and Invisalign treatment.  In 2003, Dr. Wang opened the BC Head Pain Institute to aid patients suffering from chronic pain in the head, jaw, teeth, and neck.
