TruDenta in Saint Paul, MN

Defeat Chronic Headaches and Jaw/Neck Pain With Drug Free TruDenta Treatment!

Many adults are living and suffering with painful facial and neck pain. Our Saint Paul team helps dental patients manage and overcome this pain using TruDenta treatment.

TruDenta in Saint Paul, MN

What is TruDenta?

TruDenta is a therapy system that treats chronic pain using:

  • Ultrasound
  • Laser therapy
  • Bite modification
  • Muscle stimulation
  • Manual Muscle Therapy

This treatment protocol is completely non-invasive, drug-free, and needle-free!

Most importantly, TruDenta addresses the root causes of chronic pain. TruDenta delivers lasting relief, rather than the temporary improvements that medications provide.  

How Do The Parts Of TruDenta Work?

  • Ultrasound: our dentist directs sound waves at areas of damage and tension. These sound waves increase blood flow to promote healing, relax deep tissues and muscles, and break up scar tissue.
  • Laser therapy: low-level lasers prompt your muscles to create ATP, which helps your muscles and joint to heal. Laser therapy also relaxes tense muscles, and somewhat inhibits your body’s ability to feel pain.
  • Bite modification: a misaligned bite can cause many of the chronic pain issues that we’ve been talking about. If our dentist determines that this is the case for you, we will bring your bite into better alignment using orthodontic treatment, restorations, or enamel shaping.
  • Alpha-stim microcurrent muscle stimulation: using an alpha-stim machine our dentist delivers low electrical currents to the patient’s muscles. Low-level electrical currents relax muscles and relieve tension. This FDA-approved treatment prompts to the body to make ATP and release lactic acid.
  • Manual muscle therapy: stimulates blood flow, releases muscle tension, and loosens knots in the muscles.

Get the Relaxing, Comfortable Dental Treatment You Need With All-Natural NuCalm®!

NuCalm®, what’s that?

NuCalm® a completely natural relaxation protocol that helps dental patients remain comfortable during dental treatment. After using NuCalm® patients leave our office feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

How does it work?

NuCalm® treatment combines a few different techniques to relax the patient. The purpose of NuCalm® is to coax the patient into the first stage of sleep. NuCalm® is designed to shift brain waves from high frequency beta brain waves (wakefulness) to lower frequency alpha/theta waves (deep relaxation).

What exactly happens during treatment?

There are four consecutive steps to NuCalm®:

  • First you’ll take a dietary supplement. This supplement helps to counteract the effects of adrenaline in your body.
  • Next, our dental team will attach small microcurrent stimulation patches behind your ears. Low-level electrical currents facilitate your body’s relaxation response.
  • Then, you’ll put on a pair of noise-dampening headphones. These headphones play soothing music that has been optimized calming neuroacoustic tones. As you listen to these sounds, you’ll fall deeper into a stage of pre-sleep.
  • The final step is for you to put on light blocking glasses. These glasses are so important—they help you block out distractions and potentially stressful stimuli!

It takes only moments for the effects of NuCalm® to kick in—you’ll notice the difference right away!

Why choose NuCalm®?

Dental patients of all ages choose NuCalm® because it:

  • Is effective
  • Is completely natural
  • Starts working in minutes
  • Doesn’t include any medications or narcotics
  • Does not require the patient to receive injections
  • Does not incapacitate you physically or mentally (you’re never unconscious)
  • Is free from side effects—you won’t have to wait for the effects to wear off post-treatment
  • Is relaxing and rejuvenating

NuCalm® is suitable for all kinds of dental patients, and it is great for those people who avoid dental treatment due to fear and anxiety.
