Orthodontic Pain Management

Elements of TruDenta are used by orthodontists in every case start, both adult and pedi, conventional braces and Invisalign. Patients are eager to have a more comfortable orthodontic experience.

Your team performs the pain management treatment to reduce discomfort during various phases of care; at bonding, de-bonding and when the patient is feeling anxiety or pain from orthodontic care. Treatments take only six minutes to perform.

Orthodontists say that using the Pain Management Program produces better results and cases complete more quickly. Plus doctors are finally able to help patients who have deferred orthodontic care due to their ongoing pain symptoms.

Pain Management Fee

The per-case fee typically ranges from $100 to $200. You can provide the Pain Management Program in the overall case fee, or offer it with an optional fee paid over the term of the case. Orthodontists report a 90%+ acceptance rate. The Pain Management Program fee in a typical practice will more than pay for the entire TruDenta system, even if you do not provide the entire TruDenta therapy to treat DMSD.

New Patients for TruDenta are Sitting in Your Lobby

Orthodontic providers report that the mothers of their pediatric patients are their #1 source of new patients for TruDenta’s DMSD therapy. If this is not the easiest marketing you will ever do, we don’t know what is!

Statistically speaking, according to the National Institutes of Health, about 20% of the mothers in your lobby are seeking a solution to their DMSD symptoms.

These moms already know and trust you with their child’s care, and see for themselves how your Pain Management Program helps their child. A simple TruDenta screening can quickly determine if you can help them with their DMSD symptoms.

Return on Investment

The return on investment for general practice dentists is handsome, but for orthodontists it is spectacular. Orthodontists often pay for their system within 90 days.

Immediate tax deductibility of the entire investment is possible, whether financed or purchased in cash, under IRS Section 179. Please consult your financial advisor on tax considerations.

Pain Management Program Training

Orthodontic specialists and their teams receive customized education and training both prior to workshop and at the dental school workshop.

Assessing DMSD

20% of your existing patients suffer from DMSD, as do 20% of all Americans. Your team members quickly assess patients for "red flags" (which indicate DMSD), utilizing TruDenta's patented technologies. Read More
Bite Force Analysis Icon showing mouth and teeth

Bite Force Analysis

TruDenta uses digital force measurement technology, powered by Tekscan®, for evaluating the amount of bite force that is present during closure, at closure, and while chewing. The technology is so advanced that it actually calculates the bite force and motion on a tooth-by-tooth basis. This digital exam literally shows a movie of the bite force in action revealing abnormal forces in the nerves, muscles and ligaments that are often the cause of symptoms. Read More

Mandibular Range of Motion

A normal opening for an adult is 53 mm to 57 mm. Limited or restricted range of motion (less than 40 mm) is a reduction in an individual’s ability for normal range of movement. Along with opening movement, an individual should be able to slide their jaw to the left and to the right at least 25 percent of their total mouth opening in a symmetrical fashion. Read More

Cervical Range of Motion

The TruDentaROM is a system of hardware and software that digitally measures cervical range of motion (ROM) impairment based upon AMA guidelines. This directly affects the proprioceptive feedback system of the dental occlusion, TMJ, and the muscles of mastication. Read More
Doctor Chair Time Icon showing clock

Doctor Chair Time

A typical case requires less than one hour of doctor time in the diagnosis and minor occlusal adjustments during the rehabilitation period.

Treatments are performed by a trained team member once per week, in less than one hour. The most severe cases require 12 treatments. Therapies are spa-like, non-invasive and require no drugs or needles. Most patients report dramatic results after the very fist treatment. Note: The majority of patients utilize an orthotic only during the treatment period, up to a maximum of 12 weeks. Read More
Ultrasound Icon showing air waves

Therapeutic Ultrasound

The goal of therapeutic ultrasound treatment is to return circulation to sore, strained muscles through increased blood flow and heat. Another goal is to break up scar tissue and deep adhesions through sound waves.

Therapeutic exposure to ultrasound reduces trigger point sensitivity and has been indicated as a useful clinical tool for managing myofacial pain. Additionally, ultrasound also has been shown to evoke antinociceptive effects on trigger points. Read More

Microcurrent Stimulation

Sub-threshold microcurrent stimulation reduces muscle spasm and referral pain through low electrical signal. It also decreases lactic acid build-up and encourages healthy nerve stimulation. In particular, microcurrent electrotherapy has been shown to help increase mouth opening significantly. Read More
Low-Level Laser Icon showing laser working

Low-Level Cold Laser

Low level laser/light therapy is one of the most widely used treatments in sports medicine to provide pain relief and rehabilitation of injuries. Over 200 randomized clinical trials have been published on low level laser therapy, half of which are on pain.

Low level laser/light therapy decreases pain and inflammation, accelerates healing of muscle and joint tissue 25 to 35 percent faster than without treatment, and reconnects neurological pathways of nerves to the brain stem, thereby inhibiting pain. Read More
