Testimonials

  • Myself and my family have been going to Dr. Woodson for 10 years now. I had bad experiences as a child with dentistry, I was fearful to go back but Dr. Woodson made it feel very personal like you’re the only patient he has to care about. With kids he’s fantastic. I’d recommend him for anybody.

  • Dr. Woodson has definitely restored my faith in dentistry. I have always had wonderful experiences there; the office staff is great and he is one of the most gentle, funniest and friendliest people I know. He makes each experience very comfortable,there is very little post procedure pain. It’s as pleasant as it can be. I highly recommend him for anyone, child and/or adult and I do recommend all my friends and family. In fact my entire family sees Dr Woodson.

  • My family and I have been going to Dr. Woodson for over 17 years. He’s wonderful, caring and very gentle. My kids used to give me a hard time when they had to go to a dentist – but that was all over when we found Dr. Woodson – we never had a problem again. They are all grown now and they still go to him. He is very very entertaining – so are his staff. It’s a very warm and friendly atmosphere. They go out of their way to make appointments around your work schedule. I would recommend him to anyone – he’s been very good to me and my family.

What is TMJ?

“TMJ” is an acronym for temporomandibular joint, that is to say, the jaw joint. The temporomandibular joints are the joints in front of the ears attaching the lower jaw to the skull. They are essential to daily jaw functions such as opening and closing your mouth, chewing and speaking.

What Are TMJ Disorders?

TMJ disorders refer to conditions, manifested by pain in the area of the jaw and jaw muscles and limitations in the ability of the jaw to operate normally while speaking, eating, and swallowing.

The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research of the National Institutes of Health states that 10.8 million people in the USA suffer from TMJ problems. 90% of those seeking treatment for TMJ are women during their childbearing years.

What Causes TMJ Disorders?

Medical research has not yet defined all the causes of the various TMJ disorders. Some patients report having TMJ symptoms following trauma, dental treatment, traffic accidents, trauma, or following the adoption of habits such as clenching or grinding the teeth. Arthritis in other parts of the body is sometimes linked to TMJ pain.
