With a holistic and biocompatible approach to dentistry, he can find a way to help patients based on their unique situations. Patients with conditions such as Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) may find migraine relief with our team thanks to the advanced assessment and treatment solutions used to achieve desired results—while reducing the symptoms of these chronic conditions.
What are some ways of addressing conditions such as TMD with Dr. Scott Stewart?
- T-Scan – one way of addressing migraines is with the T-Scan treatment. Instead of using oral appliances that address TMD pain by keeping the upper and lower dental arches from touching, this diagnostic treatment can detect the specific teeth that are contacting and contributing to the symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder. These contacts are known to cause the majority of issues because of the discomfort they can cause when patients chew or swallow and how they react with the muscles of the jaw. By pinpointing these areas with the T-Scan system, our dentist can find the specific areas where muscle tension occurs and help relieve patients of their symptoms.
- TruDenta/DTR – another option for treating chronic migraines is the Trudenta/DTR treatment. This particular treatment helps with not only chronic migraines but headaches, vertigo, tinnitus, and TMJ disorder as a whole. An assessment is performed during which the dentist will evaluate the patient’s bite forces to find where the imbalances are within the smile. This includes an assessment of one’s range of motion to look for signs of inflammation or muscle tension. Then, patients fill out a questionnaire about their headache history, and a muscle examination is performed. With Trudenta/DTR, patients do not need medication, injections, or the use of oral appliances.
- Alterative options – after assessing a patient with TMD who is seeking a solution for their smiles, we can work directly with individuals to determine what treatment is best. We also provide alternative options such as ultrasound therapy, cold laser therapy, microcurrent treatment, and muscle manipulation to assist patients in finding relief that fits their budget and lifestyle. We know that there is no “one size fits all” solution as each patient is different, and we diligently evaluate a patient to determine what is best for their unique situation. Treatment is tailored to the individual to ensure the best possible results!
