How Trudenta can help with headaches and TMD pain
The temporomandibular joint or TMJ is the joint that attaches your lower jaw to your head. It has a unique, sliding movement, unlike any other joint in your body. Because of this, it can easily shift out of position, causing pain and other symptoms including headaches.
When you have a problem with your TMJ, it results in a condition called temporomandibular joint dysfunction, or TMD. There are many treatments available, but most have limited or temporary effectiveness. Your dentists at Designer Dentistry & Smiles in Sioux Falls, South Dakota want to introduce you to a much more permanent, effective treatment option; it’s called Trudenta.
Trudenta uses revolutionary new T-Scan technology to assess your jaw and tooth alignment to find out any imbalances in movement. Trudenta creates a complex 3-D digital model of your jaw forces and how they move together. Your dentists at Designer Dentistry & Smiles use this information along with a comprehensive examination to treat your TMD and these accompanying symptoms:
- Facial pain
- Excessive, uneven tooth wear
- Damage and breakage to your teeth
- Neck and jaw pain
- Clicking, popping or locking of your jaw when you chew
- Ringing in your ears, also called tinnitus
Your dentists in Sioux Falls, SD begin your Trudenta treatment with a questionnaire, detailing your symptoms and concerns. The questionnaire also covers your dental history and any factors or causes relevant to your pain. For a downloadable, printable copy of the questionnaire you can fill out ahead of your appointment.
Your Trudenta examination uses complex measurements to calculate the force imbalances in your mouth from your muscles and tendons, on a tooth-by-tooth basis. Using these measurements, your dentists at Designer Dentistry & Smiles will form a treatment plan consisting of ultrasound, light therapy, electrical stimulation and muscle manipulation to rebalance your muscles and create free, painless movement. You will also be provided with a set of exercises and an orthotic to wear temporarily as your treatment works to heal you.
If you suffer from TMD or headache pain, it’s time to try a more permanent solution. It’s time to try Trudenta, the needle-free, pain-free and drug-free treatment system to relieve your TMD symptoms.
