Certain services are only available at the Glen Carbon Office - call for details

When most people think about going to the dentist is might be to repair your teeth, straighten your teeth, replace your teeth, or whiten your teeth, but that is all changing. With the advancements in technology we are now able to treatment the problems that come from the pressure created by our jaws.

Amazing Smiles can diagnose the underlying issues that cause TMJ/TMD

TMJ/TMD, or Temporomandibular Joint Disorders, can cause headaches, migraines, neck and face pain, tinnitis (ringing in the ears), popping and clinking of the jaw joint, fracturing of teeth, and clenching to name just a few. During the consultation, we listen to our patients' concerns and the impact that TMD has on their life.

With digital diagnostic technology, we take measurements of tooth forces, document the range of motion in the neck, and in some cases we measure how wide they can open their mouth comfortably.

Afterwards, we take measurements and create a customized treatment plan. This plan may include a splint worn at night to decrease the dental forces or ultra sound and cold laser therapy to decrease symptoms to get the healing started. For our headache patients we may incorporate all of those therapies and add muscle manipulation and a special micro-current machine to re-program the nerves to fire correctly as we break down the lessions in the neuropathways and muscles of the head, face, neck, and shoulders.  These treatments are painless and require no drugs. The appointments are typically monthly, but more complex cases may be seen more frequently. 

We have helped many patients through Trudenta Therapy look forward to discussing your treatment plan. Call us today to schedule your complimentary exam!
