Did you know that many cases of tinnitus can be traced to underlying problems with the mouth and jaw?

Our plan utilizes medical therapies to reduce pain and inflammation from the very first session, with the end goal of creating lasting results.
It may be your jaw, not your ear
Tinnitus can manifest as hissing, buzzing, or ringing in the ears. The root cause is stimulation to the auditory nerve making you “hear” a constant ringing sound. In some cases, the trigger may actually stem from problems in your jaw.
The human jaw is one of the most complicated joints in the body. Located near the ears, its joint can generate over 260 pounds of force at the molars and yet relies on a delicate balance between the nerves and muscles. Disruptions in the jaw can trigger conditions such as tinnitus.
A new way to treat tinnitus
It’s called the TruDenta Treatment System. The systems uses advanced diagnostic technology to analyze the mechanics of the head, neck, and jaw and identify sources inflammation and tension using:
