Nisha came into the Pasadena Pain Management complaining about severe TMJ pain. The pain started with soreness in her jaw, followed by neck pain and debilitating migraines.
The pain was unbearable. Nisha turned to over-the-counter medications to help her cope — but nothing worked long term. Then she sought treatment.
A quick Google search led Nisha to Pasadena Pain Management for specialized TMJ treatment. When she came into our office looking for help with her TMJ and neck pain — she had no idea how much her bite force and teeth clenching were impacting her pain. The specialized TMJ therapy offered here at Pasadena Pain Management, called Disclusion Time Reduction (DTR), offered her a clear plan of action for eliminating her TMJ problems. Within a matter of weeks, Nisha already felt relief.
How DTR Treatment for TMJ Pain
Instead of traditional TMJ treatment of mouthguards and appliances, we use a T-Scan system to compile data on a TMJ/TMD patient’s timed and force bites inside the mouth. As back teeth touch each other while a patient chews, eats, or grinds their teeth, opposing teeth push each other in and out of their sockets. These socket compressions go on unknown to the patient and happen thousands of times throughout the day, all the while, excessively firing the jaw muscles of the patient into a state of severe TMJ pain.
This is what happened to Nisha.
By using the T-Scan, the data collected nearly permanently corrected the time and force of occlusal problems going on in Nisha’s mouth. In most patients, many of the TMJ jaw pain symptoms go away within the first week after treatment has begun – without a mouthguard!
