Updates to dental headache care system provide benefits
TruDenta system enhancements respond to user input and needs.
FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida--The TruDenta system for assessing, treating, and managing force imbalances in the mouth has been enhanced to provide greater life-changing benefits to patients and the dental practices that treat them.
Improper dental forces can result in chronic and debilitating headaches and other conditions, including tinnitus and TMJ dysfunction. Dental Resource Systems has announced the upgrades, which were implemented based on the ongoing R&D initiatives and user input during the 2013 Chicago Midwinter Dental Meeting. Combined, the enhancements will enable dental teams to more efficiently provide dental headache care and pain relief to the more than 80 million people who could benefit from TruDenta treatment.
The upgrades include the new TekScan TSCAN 8 software for enhanced assessment of dental forces. By modernizing the user interface, the new software provides dental teams with greater efficiency and improves ease of use. Additionally, the system now incorporates the new, super-pulsed, low-level laser therapy device.
It is based on technology proven effective in clinics in countries by medical and dental professionals. Finally, the system has been enhanced with the new TruDenta M microcurrent, electro-stimulator. This electro-stimulator is used to treat multiple pain areas, and helps reduce patient pain symptoms caused by dentomandibular sensorimotor dysfunction.
“The ability of dentists and their teams to achieve success and receive heart-felt thanks by providing patients in their practice with pain-free, needle-free, and drug-free pain relief has now been enhanced with the upgrades we’ve introduced,” said John Harris, president and CEO of Dental Resource Systems.
“With hundreds of doctors in almost every U.S. state now providing TruDenta patient care, we also are constantly developing new methods to enhance our comprehensive clinical training and positive patient outcomes.”
For this reason, the TruDenta training, online education, and clinical workshop hosted at UNLV or NOVA Southeastern dental schools allow the dentist, registered dental hygienist, and registered dental assistant to each receive CE credit. In addition, all training materials, including manuals and interactive videos, are available in iBook format.
Dentomandibular sensorimotor dysfunction is often the underlying cause of numerous chronic headaches, migraines, and other painful and discomforting symptoms. Dentists and their teams can treat patients with these conditions because the muscles and neurology of the mouth are mediated by the trigeminal nucleus, the same nerve center responsible for head and neck pain. This “pain communication center” collects the sensory information from these areas, and can be rehabilitated in the dental office.
The TruDenta system for assessing and treating dentomandibular sensorimotor dysfunction and chronic headache conditions incorporates patented assessment and treatment technology and software. These are supplemented by clinical training and ongoing practice implementation assistance for relieving dental force related disorders. The multiple examination and treatment devices and modalities, which represent a combination of sports medicine rehabilitation and advanced dentistry technologies, are cleared by the FDA.
