Do you suffer from migraines, tension headaches, or jaw pain? Are you tired of living on pain medications? Do you carry a pill pack to get through your day? Do you panic when you discover you left home without pain medications? Are you unproductive at work or missing important family events due to chronic headaches?
Many headaches are the result of dysfunction in other areas of the body. TruDenta® can help balance or eliminate the problem. In Sacramento, CA, Dr. Timothy E. Mickiewicz addresses the root cause of your headaches and associated symptoms, such as tinnitus, vertigo, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), and/or dizziness with the TruDenta® System.

How Does TruDenta® Work?
The TruDenta® System is a scientific methodology that diagnoses chronic headache pain relief at the source and treats the root cause of the problem. Rather than short-term symptom relief such as pain medications, this a complete treatment system for long-term healing. Using a combination of techniques developed from sports medicine therapies, the TruDenta® System targets the unbalanced muscle forces in the head, neck, and jaw area that are the source of the majority of headaches and related disorders.
Treat the Source, Not Just the Symptoms
Medical research has revealed that the causes of chronic migraines, tension headaches, vertigo, tinnitus, TMJ/TMD, and face, jaw, and neck pain are all interconnected. The common denominator is unbalanced forces in your mouth that affect the nerves and muscles in these areas. Nerves, tendons, ligaments, and muscles are all interconnected. When any one part of this complex system is compromised, it strains the whole system. In addition, painful symptoms could result from a past accident, head trauma, misaligned teeth, or other underlying medical conditions.
TruDenta® provides long-lasting pain relief, by treating the root cause of the pain and not just temporary symptom relief.
How does TruDenta® work?
The TruDenta® headache pain evaluation is easy and simple. After discussing your medical health history with Dr. Mickiewicz, the computer-assisted TruDenta® evaluation aids him in locating the source of your chronic pain. Based on the test results, he can recommend a customized in-office treatment plan. Your personal treatment plan is designed to re-train the muscles and nerves connected by the trigeminal nucleus to function properly.
What is the trigeminal nucleus?
The trigeminal nucleus is the core of the trigeminal nerve and the body’s principal sensory center where information about sensation and light touch of the face is received and processed. The trigeminal nerve is the nerve responsible for sensation in the face and motor functions such as biting and chewing.
To re-train muscle and nerves of the face we prescribe a combination of FDA-cleared technologies:
- Ultrasound Therapy
- Low-level Cold Laser
- Microcurrent Therapy
- Trigger Point Manipulation
Depending on the severity of your diagnosis, your treatment may consist of 1to 12 treatments completed weekly. Each TruDenta® treatment lasts about 50 minutes.
