North Carolina Headache Center FAQs
Why seek a dentist to treat head pain?
Research reveals that chronic tension headaches, migraines and other head pain is likely related. The cause may be a result of stressed and unbalanced bite forces greatly affecting muscles in these areas. Nerve and chemical imbalances that cause chronic pain occur as a result of this uneven dynamic. Our headache and migraine doctor uses clinically proven TruDenta therapy with its origins in sports medicine to measure, evaluate, treat, and resolve your headache pain.

TruDenta allows you to finally address debilitating migraines and temporomandibular disorders, commonly known as TMJ.
What should I expect from a TruDenta exam?
With a few select easy, painless tests, your headache doctor can determine what is causing your headache symptoms. TruDenta uses computerized measurement of your mouth’s force balance across each tooth. We also measure your muscle and mouth movements and any impairment.
