Orofacial Therapeutics Announces Collaboration with The TeleDentists to offer Speed2Treat® Home Healing Kit

We are excited to collaborate with The TeleDentists® in offering the Speed2Treat® Home Healing Kit to their urgent care patients that have acute jaw pain, mild head and neck injury, and TMJ flare-ups.  Patients can conveniently contact The TeleDentists® and schedule a consult on their phone or laptop within 10 minutes, day or night!

When you are in pain it’s hard to wait for an appointment with your doctor or dentist and going to urgent care is not desirable.  That is why we are so excited that this is convenient and affordable telehealth consults are available to patients who need care now and seek answers to their questions.

Our company feels strongly that simple, conservative care that you can use at home is the most effective strategy in healing and returning to normal function of your jaw and neck.  Too often patients wait to get better or get very discouraged when they do not immediately improve.  Let’s face it, jaw pain and associated headaches and neck pain is very distracting and sometimes alarming!

Our experience shows that 7 out of 10 patients with mild head, neck and jaw trauma or injury (without significant prior history) who are compliant with the Speed2Treat Care Plan will improve within four weeks to normal jaw and neck function and reduction in pain levels. The risk of waiting may mean that it becomes harder over time to fully open your jaw, or for some people, muscle tension spreads and becomes neck, shoulder and back pain.

Can bruxism cause headaches? Bruxism is the involuntary grinding, gnashing, or clenching of teeth and it can happen during sleep or while you’re awake. When this grinding or clenching becomes associated with headache symptoms, it’s referred to as a “bruxism headache”. Here’s what you need to know about the different kinds of headaches associated with bruxism and what you can do to get relief.
New jaw pain after dental injection may be from nerve damage, but it’s more likely to be a warning sign of an underlying TMJ injury. This is because nerve damage from an injection is extremely rare, and if it occurs, the presenting symptoms are numbness and tingling, rather than jaw pain. A more common cause of new jaw pain after a dental procedure is sprain/strain to the jaw joint and muscles.
There are many different types of temporomandibular (TMJ) disorders, so the best mouth guard for TMJ pain depends on your underlying condition. There are two major sources of TMJ pain; the joint itself and the surrounding muscles. It’s important to know the difference, because the choice for the best TMJ mouth guard is different between the two.
Why do SSRIs cause jaw clenching? While the exact mechanism is unknown, it appears that SSRIs trigger jaw clenching because of their effect on the level of neurotransmitters like serotonin in the brain. These neurotransmitters control mood, but they also contribute to movement regulation.
