Chronic migraines, tension headaches, vertigo, tinnitus, and pain in the face, neck, and jaw affect millions of Americans. Unbalanced forces in the jaw can contribute to these problems. Unbalanced forces can affect muscles, which can cause chemical and nerve reactions that create chronic pain.
Many people have tried numerous treatments but found little or no relief for their symptoms. Dentists may be able to help. A dentist can use devices derived from the field of sports medicine to evaluate and treat vertigo, tinnitus, and pain in the head, face, neck, and jaw.
TruDenta is a treatment that can relieve chronic headaches, migraines, TMJ/TMD, and many other conditions. TruDenta treatment does not involve the use of drugs or needles.
Your dentist will have you complete a questionnaire that will ask questions about your pain symptoms, dental history, head and neck problems, and any accidents or injuries that may be responsible for your problem. During an exam, your dentist will take computerized measurements of the force balance of each tooth in your mouth. He or she will also take computerized measurements of the disability of your muscle movement and measure your mouth movement. These tests are simple and painless.
The results of these tests can help your dentist identify the cause of your symptoms. He or she can also identify other issues with your mouth, muscles, and teeth that will be treated with TruDenta therapy.
TruDenta is a type of in-office treatment that includes gentle light therapy, electrical stimulation, muscle manipulation, and ultrasound therapy. One to 12 weekly treatments will be needed, depending on your symptoms and their cause. You will continue your treatment at home with exercises and an orthotic to wear for a short period of time. Many patients report that their symptoms were significantly lessened or completely relieved soon after beginning TruDenta treatment.
