Symptoms Treated By TruDenta
Headaches, migraines, clenching, grinding, broken teeth and other symptoms are often the result of unbalanced forces within the mouth, head, neck and jaw. A system which properly examines, diagnoses and treats the dental force related symptoms experienced by tens of millions of patients, has only recently come into being. The TruDenta system is comprised of state-of-the-art examination and treatment technologies that are only available in TruDenta affiliated dental practices.
In less than 20 minutes, your TruDenta doctor can quickly and painlessly do an examination, provide a diagnosis and actually show you the potential reasons for your pain and other symptoms. These may include:
- Headaches (chronic or irregular)
- Clicking/popping of the jaw joints
- Clenching and grinding (bruxism)
- Tinnitus (ringing of the ears)
- Muscle tension and pain in the face and neck
- Sensitive teeth due to overloaded forces
- Broken teeth or dental work
- Uneven tooth wear and cracking
- Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD)
- Limited range of head/neck motion
- Reduced mouth opening range
- Accelerated bone loss in periodontal disease
- Ear pain not from infection
All of the above symptoms, as well as others, can be the result of force related issues within the head, neck and jaw. The jaw joint (temporomandibular joint) is the most complex joint in your body. It is located very close to 50% of all of your body's nerves and right next to your brain.
When operating correctly, the jaw and its muscles should painlessly exert massive forces within your mouth. Your jaw and teeth are living, growing tissues. Teeth grow, wear and move throughout your lifetime. They can become affected, like any other tissues, if the forces (muscles, tendons, nerves and ligaments) which power your jaw are unbalanced or creating improper forces. Many dental related problems can show up within your head, neck and jaw, not only associated with your teeth.
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
