TMJ Headache Treatment with Wisconsin Dental Solutions
A misaligned jaw joint can cause many nagging symptoms that range from teeth grinding to chronic migraines. Temporomandibular joint dysfunction, more commonly known as TMJ, is the improper alignment of the jaw joints that hold the mandible to the skull. Even a slight misalignment can cause a muscle and nerve disturbance that contributes to a host of painful symptoms. These include, but are not limited to:
- Chronic headaches or migraines
- Popping and clicking of the jaw joint
- Chronic earaches
- Face, neck, shoulder, and/or back pain
- Inability to fully open & close mouth
- Teeth grinding (bruxism)
- Tingling fingers & hands
If you experience one or more of these problems, Wisconsin Dental Solutions can examine your jaw to determine if TMJ dysfunction is the source of your problem(s). We can create a custom oral appliance for you to wear at night. The appliance will eliminate your potential for teeth grinding and properly reposition your jaw. In other situations, we may recommend building up your bite with restorative dentistry or making your bite more even with a procedure called equilibration.
