Marla wanted changes to her smile but also discovered she was a TMD patient. She had cavities on all her back teeth as a kid and the dentistry had been redone once or twice by the time she was in her thirties.
The most painful of her TMD symptoms were the headaches. The headaches had been a part of her life for many years. They worsened year by year until she was having migraines. Before her phase one orthotic therapy she was to the point of almost daily headaches and often multiple migraines in any given week.
Marla wanted to eliminate the gap between her front teeth, widen her smile to fill in the dark spaces on the sides when she smiled, and after she realized we could help with her headaches she wanted the correction of her joint and muscles to be permanent. She wasn’t willing to wear braces but was open to the idea of Invisalign. She needed to replace her large fillings, (most of which had new cavities,) with something stronger and better fitting.
We first did a neuromuscular evaluation for Marla. The results showed she was a good candidate for Dr. Salartash to significantly help with her headaches. She then went into an orthotic to prove we could eliminate her pain. After great results with the orthotic we made the improvements permanent. To do this for Marla, we used Invisalign to improve the position of her teeth and then restored her bite to a position where her pain was addressed. We also did a smile design and veneers to give her the smile she always wanted. We listened to her wants about color, shape, translucency, anatomy, etc. and she loves the result!
Since her treatment Marla’s migraines are gone and her headaches are very rare.
