TruDenta®: What You Should Know about Headaches

Have you ever considered going to the dentist for a headache? No, probably not. Chances are you just reach into the medicine cabinet and pop a Tylenol. It is said that over 80 million people suffer from chronic headaches and migraines. Experts believe that 80% of the symptoms are dental force related. In other words, tension-type headaches as well as face, jaw, and neck pain can be interconnected and caused by unbalanced forces in your mouth affecting the muscles of these areas. TruDenta utilizes state-of-the-art examination and treatment technologies to evaluate the dental forces that may be causing you pain.

The Reason for the Pain

While pain medication can provide temporary relief from a headache, it doesn’t tackle the underlying reason for the pain. TruDenta, on the other hand, targets the groups of muscles, joints, tendons, and nerves that comprise the jaw, head, and face, addressing the principal reason for the discomfort. TruDenta can help with the following symptoms:

  • Chronic headaches and migraines
  • Unexplained pain in the neck or face
  • Ringing in the ears, tinnitus
  • Jaw clenching and teeth grinding
  • Limited range of motion in the head or neck

How Does TruDenta Work?

TruDenta utilizes a combination of sports medicine rehabilitation and dentistry technologies. It is a drug-free, pain-free, non-surgical system that measures the force balance in your mouth on a tooth-by-tooth basis. It provides mouth movement measurements as well as measurements of the disability of your muscle movements. And it all starts by having your bite measured by Dr. Gregory Weaver.

In the old days, when a headache or migraine came on all you could do was take pain medication and close the blinds to keep out the light and noise. Today, a trip to our Raleigh, NC office might give you the long-lasting relief you’re looking for.
