If you suffer from headaches and migraines, or experience pain in your face, jaw, or neck, you should see your dentist right away. The cause could be due to imbalances in your mouth that are impacting the surrounding muscle areas and causing you pain. Uptown Dental Gig Harbor offers clinically proven tools and treatments that can assess, treat and eliminate your pain.

Introducing TruDenta

TruDenta is a highly effective system that not only relieves your pain but treats the source of the problem. Employing the latest methods used in sports therapy, TruDenta is a drug-free and pain-free way to provide you with long-lasting relief.

The TruDenta® Exam

The comprehensive TruDenta exam involves:

  • In-depth computerized measurements of the force balance in your mouth, including measurements of any muscle impairments
  • Detailed measurements of mouth movements

These tests are completely painless and allow the dentist to diagnose the cause of your symptoms. The dentist will also examine other areas of your mouth, including the muscles and teeth, for possible impairment.

To ensure a successful treatment, a comprehensive questionnaire will be administered. The questionnaire will detail your oral health and dental history and allow you to inform your dentist of any pain symptoms. The more your dentist knows about your oral health history and symptoms, the better they can treat and relieve your head pain.

The TruDenta System

The TruDenta system involves both in-office treatments and an at-home program. The system is customized for each patient to maximize the chances of success.

In-office treatments include gentle light therapy, electrical stimulation, muscle manipulation, and ultrasound therapy.

The at-home program includes exercises that the patient does between treatments and an orthotic that is worn for short periods to help relieve pain.
