Advanced Dentistry with Traditional Values™
The head and mouth are home to a myriad of nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and bones, which affect your overall health and well-being.
The forces created by these elements, when not properly balanced, can result in serious conditions that include headaches and migraines; chronic head, neck, and face pain; clenching; grinding; ringing or fullness in the ears; broken teeth; popping of the jaw; and numerous other symptoms.
You will see a real-time movie of your bite, and the distribution of the forces within your mouth, on a tooth-by-tooth basis.
This proven method identifies issues often missed by other practitioners, which can lead to painful symptoms.
Once Dr. Santana and her team thoroughly diagnose you for your unique head and neck pain or tension symptoms and pinpoints the root causes we will select the best treatment protocols to restore harmony for you. Our treatments bring balance to the dental-related forces creating your unique pain condition so lasting relief can be achieved.
We routinely correct mild to severe bite force problems to alleviate discomfort in the head and neck muscles, nerves, jaw and teeth. However, every single patient we see is different. In fact, the root causes of head and neck pain or tension usually differ significantly from patient to patient. Therefore, every patient we treat is provided a customized course of treatment specific to their diagnosis. A full course of treatment for head and neck pain often lasts about 12 weeks, with each treatment session being performed once a week over a 50 minute visit.
