TruDenta TMJ Program

Headache disorders impose a recognizable burden on sufferers including sometimes-substantial personal suffering, impaired quality of life and financial cost. Repeated headache attacks, along with the constant fear of the next one, damage family life, social life and employment. The long-term effort of coping with a chronic headache disorder may also predispose the individual to other illnesses. For example, depression is three times more common in people with migraine or severe headaches, than in healthy individuals.

TruDenta dentists treat and resolve the underlying cause of the problem, not just the symptoms!

The head and mouth are home to a myriad or nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and bones, which affect not only your teeth, but your overall health and well-being. The forces created by these elements, when not properly balanced, can result in serious conditions that include headaches and migraines, chronic head, neck and face pain, clenching, grinding, ringinging or fullness in the ears, broken teeth, popping of the jaw and numerous other symptoms not typically associated with dentistry.

TruDenta dentists are uniquely trained and equipped with patented examination, diagnostic and treatment technologies.  We will quickly and objectively measure the dental forces which often lead to painful symptoms.

Some of the causes of the symptoms treated by a TruDenta dentist may include:

  • Age and Wear

As the body ages, so does the bite. Natural teeth wear at different rates from the dental work utilized on many patients. Fillings and crowns for example can be made from amalgam, precious metals, ceramics, etc. The different materials within your mouth can cause improper alignment of the teeth, and they force the muscles and tendons to work harder to compensate for the imbalances. As we age, joints and cartilage also are reduced in thickness changing angles and forces within the overall dentomandibular region. As you grow older, your teeth and bite change, potentially causing many of the symptoms that can be treated by a TrDenta dentist.

  • Head, Neck or Body Trauma
  • Dental Repair and Orthodontics
  • Poor adaptation to completed dental work, aged restorative materials, or poor adaptation of the patient to orthodontic changes, can all be causes of symptoms.
  • Stress, Diet, Posture and Frequent Computer Use

Finally, there is an answer to why you are experiencing painful symptoms!

In many cases, patients examined by a TruDenta doctor are overjoyed just to know what might be causing their pain or discomfort. Many patients have already visited medical doctors, ear nose and throat specialists, neurologists and other less advanced dental offices without a diagnosis or pathway to care.

Prescription drugs, over the counter pain killers and anti-inflammatories are masking pain, not resolving the underlying problems. With a TruDenta doctor’s modern exam and diagnosis methods, it is possible that your force related symptoms can be diagnosed and treated quickly, painlessly and without the need for drugs or permanent mouth guards. Patients can often begin the pathway to lasting relief in less than 20 minutes!

Specially trained and equipped to diagnose and treat force related symptoms

TruDenta trained dentists are extensively trained to identify and treat patients, who may be experiencing abnormal force related symptoms such as headaches, migraines, clenching and grinding, ringing of the ears, jaw/facial pain, clicking/popping of the jaw joint, breaking teeth and dental work, TMJ and other maladies. Every TruDenta dentist performs a comprehensive examination of forces in the head, neck, mouth jaw and teeth on every patient.

The movie of your mouth

In less than five minutes, a dental office which utilizes the proprietary and patent-pending TruDenta technology can determine whether a patient’s symptoms may be the result of forces from the nerves, muscles and ligaments. The painless, computer guided analysis measures bite force and jaw action while in motion. It is a true and telling movie of your bite in process!

The resulting digital, graphic report literally shows a patient where they may have abnormal forces or imbalances that could be the cause of certain symptoms. The technology is so advanced that it actually determines and calculates the bite force and motion on an individual, tooth by tooth basis along with the timing of those forces! Probably the only bite force measurement tools your current dentist utilizes is the black paper you are instructed to “chomp” on after a filling or crown!

Soothing Therapy, Amazing Results

Many patients are amazed at the relief they feel after a single TruDenta treatment.

Symptoms treated by TruDenta range widely: from a simple unbalanced bite not resulting in discomfort or pain, to chronic, decades long, life impairing headaches and migraines. Each patient receives a treatment program which is customized for their exact diagnosis, and treatment can begin immediately.

TruDenta treatments last about 50 minutes and include the use of several proven, FDA cleared technologies.
