Headache and TMJ Relief in DeLand

Woman with hands on headNon-Surgical Therapy at DeLand Smiles

Some of the most significant causes of TMJ disorders and migraine headaches are due to the relationship of the teeth and jaws. As imbalances in forces across the teeth and joints are strained throughout the day, fatigue is directed toward the TMJ area and facial muscles (as well as the neck, shoulders, and back.)

Dr. Mathias has advanced training in the area of non-surgical TMJ and headache therapy, allowing us to offer this unique service to our patients.

TruDenta Therapy

TruDenta is a system that allows us to treat the areas where tooth pressure is caused by imbalances in the mouth. We are also able to help relax the muscles that are controlling the position of the head and neck, which could further complicate the painful condition.

Individualized Care for Individualized Needs

There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for patients who battle headaches and TMJ pain. DeLand Smiles offers individualized assessments and treatment plans based on the specific needs of that patient.

There are a number of therapies and techniques that may be implemented, including:

  • Bite splints
  • Oral appliance therapy
  • Computerized bite balancing
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Ultrasound
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Muscle manipulation
  • Range of motion sensing

Treatment Plan

Your treatment will be specifically planned based on your individual needs – not just a treatment that’s popular with everyone else. After having a TMJ screening performed at your new patient exam, we can explore options should you have an unstable bite relationship.

Our separate TruDenta evaluation checks your biting forces, muscle use, and the range of motion in your head, neck, and jaw. We may decide to spread therapies like muscle tension release or ultrasound therapy over several visits to help relieve your symptoms.

Have you tried treatment for your migraine headaches or TMJ disorder, but nothing has worked? We invite you to schedule a TMJ assessment at DeLand Smiles at your earliest convenience, so you can live pain-free and enjoy life again.
