For numerous patients across the country, TMJ disorders are overlooked but serious problems. This disorder affects the jaw and head area, which results in pain around the neck, face, shoulders, and teeth. The Center for Beautiful Smiles, headed by Chula Vista dentist Dr. Young Pham, is highly certified in providing solutions to this problem.
Dr. Pham graduated with a Biology degree from Central Washington University and eventually found his dental passion at the Indiana University School of Dentistry. After receiving his DDS, he completed a one year residency at one of the most prestigious dental training programs in the nation, the Advanced General Dentistry Program at the Naval Dental Center in Parris Island, South Carolina.
Trained in utilizing the most advanced techniques and equipment, Dr. Pham possesses an extensive record in successfully resolving TMJ problems. His knowledge in the field is integrated with his empathetic approach to delivering care. He utilizes the NTI-Tension Suppression System, which consists of a small transparent plastic appliance worn over the front teeth to prevent the canines and molars from making contact.
Dr. Pham continues to add to his expertise through additional training courses in TMJ dentistry. He is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and the California Dental Association.
