Reduce TMD Inflammation with Prolozone Treatment

6

If you are one of the many people who suffer from TMD, you know how painful and debilitating it can be. You may have tried various treatments without success. However, prolozone therapy may be able to help. Prolozone is a form of ozone therapy that helps reduce inflammation and pain. It is safe and effective and can be done in our office.

If you are interested in trying prolozone treatment for TMD, contact our office at (425) 329-3142.

What Is Prolozone Therapy? 

Prolozone Therapy is a combination of ozone and prolotherapy used to treat various conditions, including TMD. Prolotherapy is a commonly used alternative medicine for stimulating response in ligaments to repair themselves. In this treatment, an injection of prolocane (an anesthetic) and dextrose work to promote healing and ligament repair in the joint.

Ozone is then added for an anti-inflammatory effect, delivering oxygen to areas where it is needed most for healing. By promoting a more oxygen-rich healing environment, the healing process is accelerated. In addition, Ozone therapy eliminates harmful bacteria in the TM joint. Bacteria can exacerbate pain and instability in an unclean and inflamed location. By using ozone, that factor is eliminated.

Treatment Benefits

Prolozone Therapy is ideal for those suffering from TMD pain, but it can also be used to treat other areas of the body that need ligament or tendon repair. Because it uses natural substances such as oxygen and ozone, there are very few risks or side effects associated with Prolozone Therapy. In addition, this type of therapy is much less expensive than traditional methods such as surgery.

Tips to Reduce TMD Inflammation

There are several things you can do to reduce inflammation and pain if you are suffering from TMD:

  • Use ice packs or cold compresses on the affected area
  • Try over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications
  • Avoid chewing gum or eating hard candy
  • Do not grind your teeth. If you grind your teeth, contact us about getting a mouthguard to wear at night.
  • Avoid stressful situations. Stress can worsen TMD symptoms.
  • Practice good posture and alignment. This will help to take pressure off of the TMJ area.

If you are suffering from TMD pain, it is best to seek treatment immediately before your symptoms worsen and create debilitating effects.

Epigenetic Orthodontics

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.

Airway Improvement

WOW! A 54% decrease in forward head posture; 164% increase in the antero-posterior size of the airway; 176% increase in the lateral size of the airway all from epigenetically centered jaw development orthopedics. This is the future of orthodontics!​
