20% of your existing patients suffer from DMSD, as do 20% of all Americans.
The National Institutes of Health estimates that over 80 million Americans suffer from one or more of the symptoms of DMSD.
- Chronic Headache
- Pains of the Head, Neck, Face and Jaw
Team members quickly screen patients for force related dental conditions utilizing TruDenta technologies. The objective, digital examination and assessment results produce a consistent diagnosis which leads to predictable outcomes.
You see DMSD patients every day. Additional symptoms associated with DMSD include:
- Broken and cracked teeth
- Failed restorations
- Clenching and grinding
These are all caused by improper or unbalanced dental forces. These same dental forces are often the cause of the patient’s pain.
The significant forces generated by improper force balance, clenching, grinding, and bruxing put the mouth and masticatory system under constant stress. Research has demonstrated that such stress and improper dental forces of the muscles, nerves, tendons, and ligaments within the dentomandibular region contribute to painful symptoms.
Patients have often seen multiple doctors seeking relief. They have typically found no answers except for over-the-counter and prescription pain killers, which only mask the symptoms, but do not resolve the underlying cause of pain.
Now dental professionals have a complete system to objectively diagnose these forces and systematically treat and monitor their patients who experience symptoms of force dysfunction.
Assessment technologies include:
- Digital bite force analysis
- Mandibular range of motion analysis
- Cervical range of motion analysis
- Health history forms
- Physical exam of the head, neck, face and jaw
