Hickory, NC Dentist Provides Drug-Free TMJ Treatment for Patients with Migraines and Jaw Pain
Dr. Dale Spencer of Hickory Dental Care invites those who experience frequent migraines and jaw pain in Hickory, NC, to consider the possibility that they might have TMD, or temporomandibular joint disorder. TMD is a condition affecting the TMJ, or temporomandibular joint. People with TMD frequently experience problems when opening and closing their jaws. They also may complain of discomfort at the site of the TMJ, as well as pain that radiates into other areas such as the head, shoulders or neck.
Dr. Spencer offers drug-free TruDenta® to TMD candidates who prefer a non-invasive method to relieve them of their pain. The TruDenta process allows for complete customization to serve the patient’s underlying problems and goals. Some treatment available as part of TruDenta include laser therapy, ultrasound sessions and trigger point manipulations. The goal of TruDenta is to manage TMD at its root problem areas, rather than simply masking painful symptoms…..
