T-ScanMany of these issues can be addressed using a process called T-Scan. Instead of using proprietary mouth guards to keep the upper teeth from touching the lower teeth (while also addressing TMD pain), this was only the best resolution if patients complied with treatment. Instead, with the T-Scan System, Dr. Scott Stewart can detect the tooth contacts that specifically cause the symptoms of TMD. These tooth contacts are the primary problem, as they create an issue with the jaw muscles and nervous system to create pain and discomfort while patients swallow or chew. By integrating in the T-Scan system in diagnosis, the dentist can now pinpoint the area of concern and provide computer-guided corrections which allow the muscles to then relax and heal. Many patients who use the T-Scan System will notice great improvement and elimination of TMJ/TMD pain and symptoms within a week after the initial treatment has started.
Trudenta/DTRAnother way to address these concerns is with the use of Trudenta/DTR. Trudenta/DTR is a proprietary treatment option that can be used when there are issues related to unbalanced dental forces. This may include chronic headaches, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), dizziness, vertigo and TMJ disorder. When these problems arise, Dr. Scott Stewart and his team will begin an extensive evaluation to determine ways to address them.
The assessment process for Trudenta/DTR starts with bite force analysis. This will determine the imbalances in the mouth. A range of motion analysis is done to check for muscle tension and inflammation. A headache history form and a head health questionnaire may be provided to ask the patient about their experiences with headaches and migraines and other concerns they may have. Finally, our team will perform a muscle examination during which they check for muscle tightness around the jaw area.
Dr. Scott Stewart is proud to introduce the Trudenta/DTR treatment solutions to patients who are proper candidates. There are no medications, no injections, and patients can get their quality of life back and start living pain-free! For most of our patients, treatments include in-office services that are personalized to their specific needs and they may include ultrasound therapy, muscle manipulation, cold laser therapy and micro current treatment. Between treatments, patients are encouraged to follow at-home care, which may include wearing special mouth guard like orthotics, specific exercises, and at home micro current therapy as well as proven healing supplements to alleviate pain and the tension that may be contributing to their condition.
