TruDenta FAQs

Why go to the dentist for head pain?

Ongoing and chronic migraines, tension-type headaches, and face, jaw, and neck area pain could be inter-connected. The cause could be unbalanced forces in your mouth that affect the muscles of these areas, leading to changes in the chemical and nerve reactions that cause chronic pain. Dentists have clinically proven devices derived from sports medicine that are used to assess, evaluate, treat, and relieve head pain.

What is TruDenta?

TruDenta is a drug-free, needle-free, and pain-free system to provide long-lasting pain relief.

The life-changing, therapeutic treatments have been effective in patients suffering from the painful symptoms of chronic headaches, migraines, TMJ/TMD, and many other painful conditions.

What should I expect from a TruDenta exam?

A computerized measurement of the force balance in your mouth on a tooth-by-tooth basis

A computerized measurement of the disability of your muscle movements

Mouth movement measurements

With these easy and painless tests, your dentist can see what’s causing your headache symptoms. The remainder of your comprehensive examination helps you and your dentist pinpoint other related areas of mouth health, muscle health, tooth-related issues, and other potential problem areas that will be treated during your TruDenta therapy.

Only TruDenta dentists use this unique combination of assessment technology and education that often leads to immediate symptom resolution for patients.

What is the purpose of the TruDenta questionnaire?

The head health history form allows you to detail all of your pain symptoms and concerns to your dentist.

It covers your dental history, head pain symptoms, and any possible causes of your head pain.

The more we know about you and your history of dental, head, and neck issues, the more likely we can help relieve your chronic head pain symptoms.

What is the TruDenta System treatment?

In-office treatment involves a personalized program of gentle light therapy, electrical stimulation, muscle manipulation, and ultrasound therapy.

Patients also follow a specific at-home continuing care program, with exercises to be done between treatments and an orthotic to be worn for a short period of time to provide control over their pain relief.

How much does TruDenta treatment cost?

The cost of TruDenta treatment depends on the assessment of your individual needs, but in general, TruDenta treatment cost can range from a couple of hundred to several thousand dollars. TruDenta practices offer flexible financing options to make TruDenta treatment affordable. Please visit our Costs page for more information, or contact our office to schedule a consultation.

Is TruDenta treatment covered by insurance?

It depends on your insurance carrier and policy. Please visit our Costs page for more information, or contact our office to schedule a consultation. Our team can explain your insurance coverage and/or financing options.

Is TruDenta right for me?

The TruDenta approach to headache pain relief corrects the nerve and imbalanced muscle function without invasive procedures. Whereas other common treatments stop at the physician’s office or pharmacy, the TruDenta System provides patients with an at-home care kit that helps put you in control. Only a TruDenta dentist can determine if this treatment approach is right for you after a thorough examination and evaluation.

I’m new to the area and was in need of a new dentist and I am so happy I found them. I was nervous about finding a new dentist because I have been going to the same dentist since I was a little kid but I am so happy I did. My hygienist was so nice and didn’t shame me for not flossing but instead gave me tips and tricks for making my oral care routine more effective. Dr. Nicole and her staff staff are truly amazing, kind, professional, and make you feel so welcomed in their office.

I had not been to the dentist for a long time and decided to give them a shot. The staff were friendly but I felt like I was being up-sold on things. Not the vibe I want from a health care provider. They did a deep clean and filled 4 cavities. I have great insurance but it was still very expensive. Now here’s the part that made me take the time to write a review on here: During my follow up appointment, about 1 month after the cavities were filled, they told me I had 2 more cavities that needed to be filled. I was suspicious because of the up-selling so I went to another dentist for a second opinion. They said I didn’t have any more cavities. These people were about to drill holes in my perfectly good teeth just to charge me more. This goes beyond bad business practices into the realm of disgusting dishonesty. Completely unethical.

First, let me say I am not a fan of ANY dentist and yes it may go to the point of FEAR. Which is why I have avoided D-D&S for several years. Unfortunately, I lost a filling and I am not even sure when it fell out nor does that matter. I had slight pain for a week or so prior to calling the office but when I called I was in SEVERE PAIN, which I informed the receptionist(Kathy) upon making my call for an immediate appointment. "Both dentists are with patients at this time, but you can come in forty minutes.", was the reply I received. I tried to grit my teeth through the forty and lasted about thirty, which seemed fine since they had paperwork for me upon arrival. I expressed my need to be seen and again I was waiting, waiting in extreme pain. When escorted back to an exam room, X-rays were administered showing the cause of my pain, an open nerve and a tooth that required a visit to an endodontist for a root canal. However, the dentist(Dr. Z.), was paged and didn't arrive to my exam room for several more minutes of severe pain; I know because I was visited by the dental assistant twice during my wait. Once again I complained about my discomfort and was given a medicated swab to bite down on in an attempt to relieve some of the pain. Finally Dr. Z. appeared with medication in injection form which did numb it. They were nice enough at DD&S to make me an appointment with Dr. Homer and he did a stand-up job at fixing the root canal issue. I wish I could leave it as a zero star rating but a one star rating is as low as GOOGLE will allow. IF you read this entire posting know that I am not against all dentists, Dr. Homer actually did a super job, was professional when he called to check on me the evening of the procedure; ending the call with comfort by telling me that the number he was calling from was his private cell number. I am not planning on visiting DD&S EVER in the future nor would I recommend that ANY friends or family visit Designer Dentistry and Smiles of Sioux Falls EVER in their future either. I believe my review speaks for itself and others should be allowed to read about my experience. Thanks for reading. Todd Schumacher

I’m always happy with the results of my dental work. My questions are always answered in a way that I feel is professional and educational. 08/23/22 I’m adding that Tiffany listened to me when she asked if I wanted is a little gift bag and I said oh yes especially dental floss! I got home and there were two dental flosses in the bag. I am a frequent flyer at Designer Dentistry. I always feel that they’re keeping my best interest in mind. Cassie gives me her opinion and I value it! Today I had Dr. Z and I’m as happy with her as I am with Dr. Nicole. 1/9/23 I continue to feel heard, supported and educated by Designer Dentistry. I trust their expertise and appreciate their professionalism.
