At is common for patients of all ages and genders to have difficulty with their smile. There are times when problems may result in chronic headaches, migraines, and facial pain.

His practice offers a variety of holistic options for patients to consider in treating facial pain, including Trudenta/DTR.
Dr. Scott Stewart and the team at South Lakewood Dental are proud to offer patients solutions that can be used in addressing these issues. Many patients don’t think of visiting a dentist for treatment of such problems, but they may find that it is the best way to address problems associated with temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD. This condition can cause patients to experience pain such as headaches and migraines that can become chronic and debilitating. By addressing the problem at the source, patients can improve their overall quality of life.
Trudenta/DTR is a treatment that works best for patients who have problems associated with unbalanced dental forces. In addition to chronic headaches, migraines, and facial pain, patients may experience ringing in the ears and vertigo. After an assessment has been completed, Trudenta/DTR treatment can begin. Evaluating patients for this treatment begins with determining the imbalances in the mouth, checking one’s range of motion, and looking for problems such as inflammation and muscle tension. We also look for muscle tightness that can occur around the jaw area to properly diagnose TMD concerns.
Once patients are screened, Trudenta/DTR begins. The assessment allows our dentist to pinpoint the specific areas of concern and develop a personalized treatment plan. This may include:
- Muscle manipulation
- Electrical stimulation
- Light therapy
- At-home exercises
- Cold laser therapy
- Microcurrent treatment
- Use of an orthotic
By combining several of these therapies, patients can find relief from the pain and return to the best quality of life possible. This can be extremely lifechanging for patients who deal with chronic pain that keeps them from being able to accomplish certain activities.
