Finally found relief for my migraines!

My name is Wendy and I have been suffering from migraines for over 15 years. When I didn’t have a migraine I had a general headache. I would say it was pretty debilitating because I was stuck in bed in darkness at least once or twice a week. I was missing so much of my kids life and my own life. One day I went to the orthodontist with my daughter who was getting braces. I saw a sign that said “Stop Suffering From Migraines.” I actually laughed thinking what in the heck could an orthodontist do for migraines. However, with much hesitation I went ahead and asked about it and even booked a consultation. Up to this point I was drowning in over the counter medications as well as prescribed medications. I had gone to chiropractors, massage therapist, and even acupuncture so why not try an Orthodontist!

My first visit consisted of a series of test and a health history form. The coolest part about this is that every test was real time! I literally got to see what was causing my headaches, they explained why, and told me exactly how long it was going to take to fix the problem! Although I was still skeptical I have to say I was a little excited and angry that no one else could tell me this! I had nothing to lose at this point because the consultation was free, the program could be filed on medical insurance, and if I didn’t have it they do interest free payments. So I started my treatment the following week. Based on my problem it was going to take 12 weeks to resolve, however, after the first treatment I already had relief! Next month will be one year since my original treatment and I have not had 1 migraine or even a headache! I can’t believe how nice it was to wake up in the morning and enjoy my day! Reality really hit when I heard my daughter talking to the doctor. She said, “Dr. Birth I prayed every day for my mom to get better, and I just want to thank you for helping her and giving me my mom back.” I just cried… The treatment I went through is called TruDenta. If you haven’t heard of it I urge you to look into it. Not every Orthodontist does this type of treatment, but Dr. Sheila Birth does and they have offices in Burleson, Fort Worth, Keller, and Arlington. Stop Suffering! I did!

    I am a 46 year old wife and mother of three. I have been under the care of a TMJ specialist for 18 years. I had other specialist evaluate me and their answer was that I needed surgery and orthodontics. I knew for sure I did not want surgery especially since they weren’t sure it would help. Therefore, that is not an option. So my old TMJ specialist just kept treatment me with splints, medication, and when it really got bad steroid shots in the facial muscles.
    This last February it got really bad even after the shots. I couldn’t function to even take care of my family. My headaches got worse; I had trouble just getting out of bed. I would do my daily cleaning of the house by working for about 15 to 20 minutes then having to lay down for 30 minutes to an hour. Then I would try to get a little more done before I had to lay down again. It eventually got so bad I was just lying in bed all day. The pain was unbearable.
    The doctor’s next step was to send me to a pain management doctor. I felt so hopeless and depressed. I asked God to just help me to learn how to live with this condition. Then my prayers were answered! A good friend of ours had heard about this new treatment called TruDenta that was supposed to really help. My husband made me an appointment and I was evaluated. I didn’t want to get my hopes up, but it sounded good. I had absolutely nothing to lose, and I was desperate.
    After being evaluated my husband and I decided to do the TruDenta program. I started treatment the next day and gradually I felt better and better. I am not at the end of my treatment and I am a completely different person! I am sleeping better and am able to get out of bed in the morning without a headache and I have a clear head! I’m driving again and am able to get things done around the house without lying down! I have my life back! I’m able to take care of my family and do the things we love to do together!
    There are no words to thank doctors Birth and Fletcher and Meghan for all they have done for me! They were all so kind and genuinely cared about me getting better so I was able to get back to the things that I loved to do! They were the answer to my prayers!
    I know there are others out there who have given up like I had and I will gladly recommend this treatment and these wonderful people. Thanks to all for your care and kindness throughout my treatment there is no way to thank you enough for what you have given me! If you would like me to talk to others thinking about your treatment feel free to give them my number.

    Sincerely,
    L. Gibbs

    Wendy V,
    I had not heard of TruDenta before, but after doing a quick Google search it makes sense. Jaw and teeth related issues can often be the culprit of Migraines and other headache disorders. I personally wear a mouth guard at night because I grind and clench. When I don’t use it, I know my headaches could be more intense that day.

    TruDenta seems to work on the same principals by getting your jaw and teeth back in alignment. Thank you for sharing and I’m so glad it is working for you!
