When a person suffering from jaw pain, headaches or migraines — they rarely think of picking up the phone and contacting a dentist. Unfortunately, these patients are missing out on a highly specialized form of alternative migraine treatment and pain management called TruDenta®. A handful of dentists, like myself at Pasadena Pain Management, have received skilled training that can offer relief to thousands of people here in Southern California.
Curious about what TruDenta® pain management really is? Here are 3 things to know about the treatment and how it can potentially help you.
- What is TruDenta?
TruDenta® is a comprehensive rehabilitation system that helps dentists treat many different orofacial disorders including headaches, migraines, tinnitus, vertigo and temporomandibular joint disorders by progressively adjusting the way that your teeth bite together.
TruDenta’s® therapy is different from other forms of pain management because it borrows heavily from the most recent advances in sports medicine. Like any other joint or muscle injury, these disorders can require careful care over the course of several weeks or months, and TruDenta® practitioners all receive specialized training in treating the entire spectrum.
2. Can TruDenta® help you even if your jaw muscle doesn’t hurt all of the time.
The TruDenta® pain management system is designed around resolving issues related to the TMJ, so a proper diagnosis before treatment is essential — this is why TruDenta’s® rehabilitative system includes a complete battery of diagnostic tests that can precisely measure any imbalances in the way that your teeth bite together. Part of this diagnostic process is technology that measures the pressure when you bite down, and creates a 3D map of your mouth that shows the precise forces exerted right down to each individual tooth. As your TruDenta® dentist, I will be able to tell right away if your bite is misaligned and whether continuing treatment will be worthwhile.
3. What are TruDenta® treatments really like?
Joint injuries can be complicated and every patient is different, but even the most severe TMJ disorders can be resolved in as few as eight treatments. Like a sports injury, the treatment time can depend on how an individual’s muscles and ligaments respond to the therapy as well as the severity of the problem.
All TruDenta® appointments will be free of any needles, injections poking, prodding, or scraping. Each treatment is completely non-invasive and drug-free, and a large part of rehabilitation process involves gentle pain-relief technology like ultrasound, micro-current, and cold laser therapies.
