ASK THE EXPERT: New Therapy Relieves Headache, Migraine, TMJ and Jaw PainBarotz Dental | April 9, 2014
Q: Is there a therapy solution for those suffering from headaches, migraines, jaw pain, tinnitus, vertigo or TMJ?
A: Yes–TruDenta® is a system of care that is helping thousands of patients with these symptoms. It is the only therapy that combines new dental technologies and the best of sports medicine rehabilitation to provide relief for these problems as opposed to just dealing with the symptoms utilizing drugs. In Colorado, TruDenta therapy is only available at the Denver Headache Center, a division of Barotz Dental.
Q: Why are there so many sufferers confused about where to seek help?
A: Let me tell you about my own experience. I recently suffered from my first migraine and I knew that there was a dental component involved. By dealing with that, I got amazing improvement, but it occurred to me that the general public would not have had a clue and not know where to go. That’s when I got involved with TruDenta therapy. Sufferers often visit several doctors without results. Many of them are being prescribed drugs that only mask the symptoms. Some doctors, however, have discovered that TruDenta can help their patients. These doctors are now referring many patients to dentists like me who provide TruDenta therapy.
Q: What does the bite have to do with headaches?
A: What is overlooked by most caregivers is that almost all of these headaches have a dental component and all involve the same nerves as the teeth, so an imbalance in the way the teeth come together can trigger the headaches and other pains of the head, neck, face and jaw. However, it’s not always as simple as that. There is usually a history of trauma or something else that causes these problems.
Q: What are some symptoms that you can help treat?
A: Chronic headaches and migraines, TMJ, head, neck, face and jaw pain, vertigo, tinnitus, limited-range motion of the jaw, head or neck.
Q: How do you know if someone can be helped with this therapy?
A: The majority of patients suffering from these symptoms have never considered that their issues could be related to their dentition and the supporting muscles. In reality, the majority are. With a quick and easy screening, my team can quickly determine if you could benefit from the TruDenta therapy.
Q: Does the program involve pain, needles or drugs?
A: No. In fact, it’s the exact opposite. There is no pain whatsoever from our treatments. The TruDenta treatments are conservative and noninvasive and the program is specifically designed to help get patients off drugs. Most clients report that the therapies are very relaxing, and most experience pain relief after just one or two treatments.
Q: What is the success rate for TruDenta patients?
A: More than 95 percent of these patients have positive outcomes from TruDenta. Many patients even experience relief after just one treatment!
Q: How has this therapy impacted your patients’ lives?
A: The TruDenta therapy makes a major difference in the everyday lives of those who have been suffering from severe headaches and the other symptoms mentioned. These patients are no longer missing days at work and can spend more quality time with friends and family. What is that worth? TruDenta gives them the life they once had back in as few as eight weeks and that is the most satisfying part to us.
Q: How can we find out more about the TruDenta system?
