Headache and dentist? Does that even make sense? Well, it does! If you have an improper bite, then the muscles that control your jaw get fatigued. These tired muscles give you jaw pain, unbearable headaches, and neck tension. Disclusion Time Reduction(DTR) is a non-invasive dental treatment to make minor adjustments that involve the removal of small amounts of tooth enamel and adding tooth-colored filling to balance your bite. This allows the muscles in the face to relax, alleviating symptoms and eliminating pain, tension, and headaches.
Through this therapy, we can relax the muscles on your face, relieve symptoms, and get rid of pain, tension, and headaches.
The Benefits of Disclusion Time Reduction Therapy
Disclusion Time Reduction therapy makes use of T-Scan™, a computerized occlusal analysis technology, and electromyography (EMGs) instead of nightguards, Botox injections, etc. Thus, you can eliminate the need for treatment for teeth grinding.
Dr. Tognotti is well-experienced in working with these advanced technologies. Using the T-scan system, Dr. Tognotti can look into every tiny occlusal problem and diagnose as well as treat it properly.
How Long Does Treatment Last?
Disclusion Time Reduction Therapy usually takes one to three visits, with results lasting over the years. Another best part about this treatment is that it doesn't require any splints, a soft food diet, or physical therapy.
