TMJ-TMD and Migraine Treatment
TMJ-TMD and Migraine Treatment Santa Fe
Dr. Brookover was among the first dentists to offer the TENS Unit in Santa Fe and Los Alamos, NM.
Chances are you are familiar with a friend of family member that deals with headaches or even worse, migraines. It turns out instead of surgery the answer to solving this problem could be a small device that can be take out. Alpine Laser Dental has used this solution with fantastic positive outcomes for several years to overcome the awful pain of headaches, migraines or constant neck or jaw pain.
If you or anyone you know suffers from headaches or migraines, the solution might be as simple as a tiny removable device. We have had great success for many years alleviating the intense pain of migraine, jaw, or neck pain where drugs have failed. Unfortunately, very few doctors and even fewer patients are aware of this new, non-drug, non-invasive but tremendously successful treatment.
Therapeutic TMJ Scanning
The TENS Unit has been used successfully for many years in the symptomatic relief of chronic pain. TENS relieves pain by sending small electrical impulses through electrodes placed on the skin. TENS is a safe, non-invasive, drug-free, and medically proven method of pain management.
Occlusal Splints/Night Guards
Occlusal splints/night guards are custom made appliances for people who grind or clench their teeth, have a history of TMJ pain and dysfunction or have needed a lot of dental treatment. These are made from a processed clear acrylic and help to guide the lower jaw to an ideal position, and as it moves side to side and front to back in our sleep. This device not only protects the teeth from harmful habits, but it is therapeutic in supporting the TMJ and helps relax the muscles used for chewing.
