Imbalanced or improper dental forces contribute to pain symptoms that can reach beyond tooth pain. Over 45 million Americans suffer from chronic headaches and migraines, often caused by temporomandibular joint disorders, commonly known as TMJ or TMD.
Marshpoint Dentistry has utilized the first system of it’s kind. It combines all of the newest diagnostic technologies, proven therapeutic procedures, and continuing educational instruction into a system of care for suffering patients.
The technologies utilized in this unique therapy are all commonly used in sports medicine to help rehabilitate muscles, tendons, nerves and ligaments. We are thrilled to offer this system to help patients feel better and change their lives.
Finding and treating the underlying cause
Bite Force Analysis — TruDenta technology is able to analyze and display the different forces at play in your mouth and jaw, right down to how much pressure is exerted by each individual tooth. We also determine through range of motion testing and muscle palpation if there is impairment in motion or pain to touch.
Range of Motion Analysis — TruDenta’s ROM system measures any abnormal or restricted movement in your head and neck in order to narrow down potential causes and create a specialized treatment plan.
Once properly diagnosed, Dr. Wermuth and our therapists design a treatment plan best suited for optimal patient relief.
