TMJ Pain

TMJ Headache Relief

Are the symptoms of TMJ Disorder (TMD) hindering you? If you have a constant headache or migraine brought on by TMD, you know how hard living with TMD symptoms can be.

Your TMD symptoms are hard to live with, and they can even force you to lie in bed all day, unable to get anything done. A bad headache can result in other problems, such as nausea and exhaustion.

TMJ Symptoms

Symptoms of TMJ or TMD, such as ringing in the ears and aching pains in the face, can be annoying and distracting from your daily routine. Locking of the jaw and other issues associated with your TMJ can be nerve-wracking, and they can cause unnecessary stress if left untreated.

Fortunately, at our practice near Rancho Santa Margarita, there’s help. Dr. Parker provides an advanced TMJ treatment that will relieve all of these frustrating and painful symptoms. The TMJ treatment that we utilize at Parker Dentistry is not what you might typically expect from a TMJ treatment.

TMJ Disclusion Time Reduction Therapy

Our treatment does not incorporate surgery, splints, mouth guards, or medication. We opt for the successful Disclusion Time Reduction therapy, or DTR therapy. DTR therapy has been proven to be a faster-acting and more permanent solution for your issues with TMD.

Using disclusion time reduction or DTR therapy, TMJ treatment at Hales Praker Dentistry involves work with a T-Scan and EMG muscle leads. With the T-Scan, Dr. Parker can analyze the occlusion contacts. With the EMG, he can find out more about the jaw’s muscle activities. With this information, Dr. Parker can make the necessary guiding movements or adjustments that will permanently improve the movement of your jaw and reduce your TMJ pain and symptoms.

With DTR therapy, you do not need to wear bulky appliances at home or undergo surgery for a less noticeable improvement in your symptoms. Now, your dentist can take care of you in this office quickly and successfully.
