Migraine and Headache Solutions

Lexington, KY Migraine and Headache Solutions

Are you experiencing regular headaches or a migraine that you can’t explain? TMD may be the culprit. TMD or temporomandibular joint dysfunction, is characterized by jaw pain, discomfort, or other dysfunction of the jaw joint and surrounding areas. This can often cause headaches and migraines. Our team at Beaumont Family Dentistry can help.

What is TMD?

What is TMJ disorder? If you or someone you know suffers from chronic headaches or migraines, and can’t explain where they come from or why they happen, they may be suffering from TMD. TMD originates in the jaw joint and can affect a number of surrounding areas, including the face, neck, ears, or head. Headaches and jaw pain are some of the most common (and most annoying) symptoms. There are many things that can cause TMD, but it is not often apparent what exactly causes the symptoms you may be experiencing.

What is Trudenta®?

Luckily, we have a migraine and headache solution for you. Trudenta® is a therapy system designed to attack TMJ-related issues from every angle. It works through four different stages to identify and eliminate the problem, leaving you comfortable and pain free. The four different stages are in-office treatment, at-home treatment, orthotic appliances, and force balancing. Each of the phases works in a different way to provide a solution to your pain.

How does each phase work?

Each phase of the Trudenta® Rehabilitation Therapy works in a specific way to attack and eliminate your pain. Let’s talk about each of the phases:

  • In-office therapy. For about 8 to 12 weeks, you’ll come in to the office for weekly hour-long appointments. This phase of therapy is designed to relax the facial and jaw muscles. We use ultrasound therapy, manual muscle therapy, and microcurrent electrostimulation to help you feel better.
  • At-home therapy. During these same 8 to 12 weeks, you will also do some at-home therapy. This therapy may include lotions, medicines, cold packs, relaxation techniques, and more.
  • Orthotic appliances. We then fit you with a mouthguard that is designed to be worn at night. This helps the joint to relax and protects you from grinding, clenching, and waking up with a headache.
  • Force balancing. This therapy is designed to make sure there isn’t any stress being put on the joint from any one direction, that all forces are equal. This helps eliminate pain and other problems long term.

If you have any other questions about how Trudenta® works, please feel free to contact our office.
