Dr. Dale Spencer, Dentist in Hickory, NC, Relieves Migraines and Jaw Pain with Drug-Free TruDenta® Protocols

The goal of TruDenta is to manage TMD at its root problem areas, rather than simply masking painful symptoms.

Dr. Dale Spencer of Hickory Dental Care invites those who experience frequent migraines and jaw pain in Hickory, NC, to consider the possibility that they might have TMD, or temporomandibular joint disorder. TMD is a condition affecting the TMJ, or temporomandibular joint. People with TMD frequently experience problems when opening and closing their jaws. They also may complain of discomfort at the site of the TMJ, as well as pain that radiates into other areas such as the head, shoulders or neck.

Dr. Spencer offers drug-free TruDenta® to TMD candidates who prefer a non-invasive method to relieve them of their pain. The TruDenta process allows for complete customization to serve the patient’s underlying problems and goals. Some treatment available as part of TruDenta include laser therapy, ultrasound sessions and trigger point manipulations. The goal of TruDenta is to manage TMD at its root problem areas, rather than simply masking painful symptoms.

Only TruDenta-certified dentists can offer this groundbreaking system that requires no surgical interventions or medications. To determine if a patient qualifies for TruDenta treatment, Dr. Spencer will first perform a Tekscan™ bite analysis. The analysis can help show any malocclusions that may occur as a result of TMD. It will also indicate bite patterns indicative of the presence of TMD.

For patients who are diagnosed with TMD and who struggle with migraines and jaw pain in Hickory, NC, TruDenta can become a standalone resource or may be utilized as part of a more comprehensive TMD treatment plan. In addition to TruDenta, Dr. Spencer offers TMJ oral appliances worn at night, laser dentistry treatments, and occlusal adjustments to round out TMD therapy options.
