TMJ and Headaches

Is TMJ Giving You Headaches?

There are a lot of possible reasons for headaches but you might not realize that the ones that are sometimes difficult to diagnose can be helped after a visit to your dentist. Headaches can often be caused by TMJ. This disorder can have a number of symptoms and many people simply endure these painful symptoms. Dr. Raj of Madison Family Dental are very well-versed with TMJ treatments.

Stop TMJ Pain

If TMJ is the cause of your headaches, there are a variety of options to stop TMJ pain. After an assessment we can review treatment options that may include jaw exercises, anti-inflammatory medications, a customized mouth splint that can be worn at night, and other options. The Madison Family Dental team can leverage neuromuscular dentistry approaches that can stop the jaw from locking, clicking, causing radiating pain in the ears, behind the eyes, and general headaches.

TMJ could even cause pain in the neck, shoulders, and back, too. TMJ treatments are just a phone call away.

A lot of things can cause TMJ. Tension and stress can lead to jaw clenching. Dental bite problems can also put undue stress on the temporomandibular joint. Trauma to the jaw could also be to blame. Regardless of the reasons for TMJ, there is help available.
