Q: What procedures are included in the TruDenta exam?
A: The TruDenta exam includes the use of two unique, patented technologies. In about five minutes, your TruDenta dentist can provide you with important, objective, diagnostic information, which may help identify the causes of your symptoms. The first device measures the opening and closing of the mouth and the bite forces within the head, neck, jaw and mouth. These detailed measurements even calculate the forces on a tooth‑by‑tooth basis‑‑both in motion and at rest. Once completed, the digital bite force analysis provides a graphic display of the forces and balances within the mouth. The second device measures the range of motion of the head and neck and instantly mathematically calculates a patient’s deviance from normal motion. This can be the sign of various conditions. Your doctor will also perform a detailed head, neck, mouth, jaw and tooth examination to further identify any potential problems. When combined, these proprietary and comprehensive exam methods can show a doctor and a patient the potential problem areas which may be leading to a patient’s unique symptoms. No other dentists in the world are equipped with this unique combination of diagnostic tools and education that are able to lead to immediate symptom resolution for many patients.
