ABOUT ASCENTIA HEALTH SOLUTIONS
Ascentia Health, Inc. is dedicated to addressing the medical needs of patients who are affected by Temporomandibular Joint Disorder.
According to the National Institute of Dental & Craniofacial Research (National Institutes of Health),
The most common cause of facial pain is temporomandibular joint and muscle disorder (TMJD), which causes
recurrent or chronic pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and its associated muscles and supporting tissues.
TMJD is the second most commonly occurring musculoskeletal condition resulting in pain and disability
(after chronic low back pain), affecting approximately 5 to 12% of the population, with an annual cost estimated at $4 billion.
About half to two-thirds of those with TMJ disorders will seek treatment. Among these, approximately 15% will develop chronic TMJD.
Ascentia Health, Inc. exists to apply its novel and proprietary technology to combat pain associated with TMJ disorders.
