    The TruDenta Process

    Bite Force Analysis Icon showing mouth and teeth

    Bite Force Analysis

    Our proprietary T-Scan technology allows our doctors to precisely assess your mouth and jaw for dental imbalances during opening, closing, and chewing, right down to the amount and direction of the force exerted by each individual tooth.
    Range of Motion Analysis Icon showing neck with arrows

    Range of Motion Analysis

    Dental imbalances often cause chronic muscle tension and inflammation, which can in turn limit your head and jaw movement. Our doctors measure and monitor the movement range of your head and jaw to more accurately determine the most effective treatment plan for your symptoms.
    Headache History Form Icon showing persons head with pain lines above

    Headache History Form

    Headaches can occur for many different reasons — in order to find the source of your headaches and determine if the TruDenta treatment process will be effective for you, your TruDenta doctor will speak with you in detail about your past headaches and their specific symptoms.
    Muscle Exam Icon showing barbell

    Muscle Exam

    Your TruDenta doctor will locate the latent trigger points in your face and neck that restrict motion and contribute to jaw imbalances — these knots of tense muscle are often missed without a thorough examination.
    Head Health Questionnaire Icon showing papers and pencil

    Head Health Questionaire

    Jaw or head trauma can cause a variety of hidden changes in the jaw, neck, and face that may later manifest as stiffness, pain, or headaches. By cataloging any possible sources of damage, your TruDenta doctor can more effectively focus your treatment plan.
