Austin Dentist Discusses Benefits of TruDenta® Treatment for TMJ Disorder Symptoms
Dr. Mark Sweeney discusses how the modern TruDenta® system can alleviate patients’ TMJ Disorder symptoms without the need for invasive techniques.
Austin, TX — Millions of people who are affected by chronic headaches, migraines, and other ailments are unaware their symptoms could be related to Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, commonly known as TMJ Disorder (or TMD). As Austin dentist Mark Sweeney, DDS explains, the temporomandibular joint attaches the jawbone to the base of the skull. If it is inflamed, imbalanced, or simply not working properly, the condition of the joint can cause a variety of debilitating symptoms. Along with Dr. Jordan Slagter, Dr. Sweeney offers the new TruDenta® system at Austin Dental Spa to diagnose and treat patients suffering from TMJ Disorder.
In a recent blog post titled “TMJ Disorder Symptoms Treated by TruDenta®,” Dr. Sweeney notes that TruDenta® can help patients suffering from headaches, clicking or popping jaws, ringing ears, and cracked, sensitive, or uneven teeth. The system can also provide relief for
patients with a limited range of motion in the neck, head, and jaw, says Dr. Sweeney.
Additional symptoms of TMJ Disorder that TruDenta® can treat include:
- Muscle, neck, ear, and facial pain
- Migraines and headaches (chronic or irregular)
- Back and shoulder pain
- Teeth clenching or grinding
- Ear pain
An additional blog entry on the practice’s website, titled ”Benefits of the TruDenta® System,” shares more about the advantages of using the modern treatment technique. Dr. Sweeney says TruDenta® allows him to effectively diagnose and treat patients without needles, surgery, or medication. The system’s advanced diagnostic tools assess the force of the patient’s bite and the range of motion in their neck, head, and mouth. Dr. Sweeney says this detailed information enables him to create a customized rehabilitation plan utilizing therapies from different medical fields, such as sports medicine and prosthodontics, to treat TMJ Disorder. The treatment is painless and each session typically lasts up to 50 minutes in length, he highlights.
Dr. Sweeney advises patients to seek medical attention as soon as possible if they believe they have TMJ Disorder, as the condition can get progressively worse and have serious effects on one’s daily life. He believes TruDenta®’s state-of-the-art diagnostic technology and its non-invasive technique are exciting new steps forward in the treatment of TMJ Disorder.
