Are you suffering from jaw, head, or neck pain? You may have a problem called TMD. TMD stand for temporomandibular joint dysfunction. This condition can be caused by a wide range of factors and the origin is generally hard to identify. However, we can help you! Your friends at Synergy Dental Center have the tools and technology to locate the origin of your pain and offer you an appropriate treatment option.

TMD Symptoms

TMJ-related pain can be quite debilitating if it is severe enough. TMD can manifest in a variety of ways and can cause a wide range of symptoms. If you have frequent or persistent problems with any of the following, you may be suffering from TMD.

  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Jaw pain
  • Neck pain
  • Ear pain
  • Facial pain
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Lockjaw
  • Popping or clicking when chewing

If you are experiencing any of these issues, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with our team. We will be happy to examine your situation, pinpoint the origin of your pain, and help relieve your discomfort.


While most dental offices can only treat your TMD with a mouthguard (we do mouthguards, too, but we don’t believe it’s a one-size-fits-all solution!), our team uses a specialized screening and treatment system called TruDenta. TruDenta is a combination of advanced screening and treatment options that can be used to locate the source of your pain and alleviate your discomfort.

For instance, you will first undergo our screening process. This may entail one or more physical or digital examinations. These exams will determine where the source of your pain lies. We can detect range of motion problems, muscle tension, and more.

Once we determine the origin of the problem, we can suggest the treatment option that is right for you. We offer electrocurrent therapy, laser therapy, physical therapy, and ultrasound therapy. As mentioned, we can also craft mouthguards if needed. We are confident that our TruDenta system will help us find a way to help you!

Orthotropic Treatment to End Headaches

A common cause of headaches is misalignment of the jaw and teeth. The constant tension and pressure can lead to pain, but it can also cause longterm damage and other conditions, such as sleep apnea.

Treat headaches at the cause by adjusting the alignment of your jaw structure. We use several advanced techniques like orthotropics and the Crozat appliance. These types of treatment can actually adjust your jaw structure to create alignment. The goal is to correct the way your jaw fits together so that it is at the perfect “resting position,” which will allow all of your muscles, nerves, and bones to be comfortable. Once your jaw is able to rest and repair, the tension (and resulting headaches) will end.
