About TruDenta Therapy
After Comprehensive Exam
Depending upon the severity of your diagnosis, patients receive a series of treatment therapies. You may require anywhere from one to twelve treatments which are completed weekly. Each TruDenta therapy session takes about than an hour to complete.
The therapy consists of a combination of low level laser therapy, therapeutic ultrasound, manual muscle therapy and micro-current. Each of these specifics were originally developed by MDs in sports medicine to speed the healing of joints and force related traumas. While the TMJ is the most complex joint in the body, it responds to therapies in a similar fashion as ankles, knees, shoulders, and other joints typically treated in sports medicine. Treatments are performed by staff members trained by TruDenta doctors at either the University of Nevada Las Vegas or NOVA Southeastern dental schools. TruDenta combines these with advanced dentistry to provide patients with predictable and long lasting outcomes.

TruDenta For Dental Headaches
Head, Neck or Body Trauma
Vehicle accidents, sporting activities or even your baby bumping his/her head against yours can be causes of force related symptoms in the head, neck and jaw. The list of trauma causes is long. Current symptoms may have been created years ago by an event long since forgotten or dismissed as minor. Head, neck or jaw trauma can cause stretching or tearing of the ligaments and muscles along with other unseen and often undiagnosed force imbalances and impairments.
Age and Wear
As the body ages, so does the bite. Natural teeth wear at different rates from years of dental work. For example, fillings and crowns, can be made from amalgam, precious metals, ceramics, and other materials. The different rate of wear of the dental materials in the mouth cause improper alignment of the teeth. As we age, joints and cartilage are reduced in thickness. This changes angles and forces within the overall dentomandibular region. As you grow older, your teeth and bite change, potentially causing many of the headache and jaw pain symptoms which can be treated by our TruDenta certified practice.
Dental Repair and Orthodontics
Some of the causes of symptoms can be poor adaptation to completed dental work, aged restorative materials and, in some cases, from poor adaptation of the patient to orthodontic changes.
Stress, Diet, Posture and Frequent Computer Use
If you lead a stress free life, congratulations! You are less likely to have force related symptoms in your head, neck and jaw. For the other 99% of the world, stress and poor posture (such as sitting in front of a computer for hours) can result in many of the symptoms outlined above. Weight gain and improper eating habits can also contribute to your head, neck and jaw pain.
