TMJ Treatment Bay Area and substance P
Substance P measurement is an essential part of dental orthopedic treatment directed at resolving neurogenic inflammatory disorders. It is the measurement of substance P that verifies that any treatment was effective, and to what extent it was effective. For TMJ treatment Bay Area our office is now starting to incorporate substance P testing routinely in many of our cases.
A big problem for TMJ treatment Bay Area and substance P testing is that Quest Diagnostics has a major error in what they list as normal levels. Our clinical cases are starting to provide us with a better idea of what is ideal levels for substance P.
Case treatment with other medical professionals continues to surprise me at the lack of knowledge about substance P, the pain neurotransmitter. Doctors must spend at least 70% of their time treating pain, but their knowledge of the pain neurotransmitter is severely lacking. This knowledge is important for them to make decisions about other conditions the patient may be experiencing. The dental profession has failed to educate the medical community as to the influence of dental orthopedic defects on systemic substance P levels.
TMJ treatment Bay Area and substance P hopes to remedy some of these shortfalls and provide evidenced based data to provide insight into the cause of a number of associated medical pathologies.
