Using TruDenta, our dentist can focus on relieve the cause of your pain to reduce headaches and migraines and enhance your comfort and quality of life. We invite you to contact us at 903-572-4141 to learn more about TruDenta in Mount Pleasant, Texas, and schedule your consultation with Dr. Jesse Taylor.
TruDenta® is a system designed to treat chronic headaches and migraines. Rather than focusing on just the pain itself, TruDenta emphasizes treating the cause of the pain.
Research in recent years has indicated that the causes of headaches; migraines; vertigo; TMJ disorders; and face, jaw, and neck aches are related. Unequal forces in the mouth influence different areas of your head, prompting nerve responses that result in pain and discomfort. Trauma, poor posture, or other medical conditions may also be a source for your pain.
After an assessment to determine the cause of your pain, which will include a bite force analysis, a range of motion analysis, a muscle exam, and a discussion of your headache and health history, our dentist will create a customized TruDenta treatment plan.
TruDenta works by “resetting” or “re-preparing” the muscles and nerves in your head and neck to promote proper function, and may include one or more of the following procedures:
- Trigger point therapy
- Electrocurrent stimulation
- Low-level cold laser therapy
TruDenta treatments usually last about 50 minutes. We invite you to call our office today to learn more about TruDenta headache and migraine relief and to schedule your consultation with our dentist. You no longer need to live with persistent pain!
