It might not occur to many people to visit the dentist if they are suffering from head pain, but the fact of the matter is that there can be a connection between headaches, migraines, and pain in the face, jaw, and neck. Sometimes a lack of balance with the forces in the mouth can lead to chemical- and nerve-based reactions that can be at the root of chronic pain.
Breakthroughs in sports medicine have enabled dentists to not only evaluate head pain with the TruDenta system but to find ways to relieve it.
Talk to Dr. Roy Chun at Oasis Dental if you have head pain that might be related to issues you are having with your jaw. After an evaluation, Dr. Chun might be able to find a treatment that can alleviate your pain altogether.
What Is TruDenta?
If you have never heard of TruDenta, you will be happy to know that it can be a life-changer for patients who are suffering from chronic conditions such as headaches, migraines, and TMJ/TMD issues, and who have not been able to find relief. It provides a drug- and needle-free way to achieve lasting pain relief for some patients by way of ultrasound therapy, gentle light therapy, electrical stimulation, and muscle manipulation.
In addition to in-office treatment, patients are directed to continue at-home care that includes exercises to be performed between in-office treatments. There is also an orthotic patients will be asked to wear as an additional control over pain relief.
Dr. Chun will start with a history of your “head health” that will outline your symptoms and concerns, as well as possible reasons you might be experiencing head pain on a chronic basis. The more he knows about your history, the more likely it is he can help relieve your head pain.
He will also conduct a series of painless tests to try to determine the cause of your headaches. In addition, these will help to pinpoint mouth and teeth issues that can be treated during TruDenta therapy.
Is TruDenta Right for Me?
Talk to Dr. Chun if you are wondering if this treatment is right for you, and he can make an assessment after a thorough evaluation. Some patients will find that the noninvasive TruDenta approach to headache pain relief will correct imbalanced muscle and function. Most patients appreciate that the TruDenta System puts healing directly in their hands with an at-home care kit that enables them to avoid trips to the physician or pharmacy.
