TMJ/TMD & Headache Therapy

TMJ & Headache Therapy

Migraines? Does your jaw hurt or pop? Let us help.

Most people say “TMJ”, but that’s really the acronym for the temporomandibular jaw joint itself. TMD stands for temporomandibular joint dysfunction, but the terms TMJ and TMD are used interchangeably. The most common term is TMJ, so we’ll use that here, too.

TMJ presents in different forms—sore jaws that pop or lock, teeth grinding and clenching (bruxism), and chronic headaches and migraines. Some unfortunate folks may have more than one or even all of these symptoms. Fortunately, Dr. Gutierrez and Royal Dental Care have solutions that can ease your pain.

Migraineurs may be skeptical–especially the ones who have tried many medications to find relief–but TruDenta® is a revolutionary treatment that has allowed thousands of people to live pain-free.

TruDenta®

TruDenta doesn’t just tackle difficult headaches.

Dr. Gutierrez is TruDenta-certified and can help patients with:

TruDenta is a Different Kind of Solution

If you endure chronic headaches that are unresponsive to treatment, TruDenta technology examines the musculature of the head, neck, and jaw, including nerves and ligaments that run throughout that system. Dr. Gutierrez can identify the source of any inflammation, tension, or structural imbalances causing symptoms, including misaligned teeth or the aftermath of an injury. Once a diagnosis has been achieved, your unique treatment plan is mapped out. Your individual symptoms dictate the number of one-hour weekly treatments (between 1 and 12) that will be needed. FDA-approved treatment methods may include microcurrent, low-level cold laser, ultrasound, trigger point manipulation, or a combination of these.
