Overcome TMJ Headaches with Effective Treatment

Having good oral health means protecting more than just your gums and teeth. Your jaw is an integral component of the overall mouth function, so if you have an issue with your TMJ (more on it later), you can experience chronic pain and dental damage. Thankfully, if you are battling constant jaw pain, you don’t have to live your daily life in pain. John L. Aurelia, D.D.S., PLLC, has a simple, minimally-invasive treatment to improve the quality of life for patients with TMJ disorder.

TMJ Headache Treatment in Rochester Michigan Area

Symptoms of TMJ pain

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) acts as the link between the skull and the lower jaw. This hinge-like joint helps you perform oral functions like eating, yawning, smiling, chewing, and laughing. When this joint works seamlessly, you might not even notice you have it. However, if the TMJ malfunctions, you will experience numerous symptoms, including.

  • Jaw pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Dental damage
  • Dizziness
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Locking or popping sound when opening your jaws
  • Pain around the face
  • Earaches
  • Difficulties opening the jaws

Sometimes, chronic headaches and migraines can be mistaken for TMJ disorder. Also, sinus and other infections can cause headaches erroneously diagnosed as TMJ pain. Far too many people can be misdiagnosed with TMJ disorder, prolonging the suffering. Luckily, if you are in Rochester, Michigan, and its environs, please book an appointment with Drs. John Aurelia and Dina Khoury for an accurate TMJ pain diagnosis.

Treatment of TMJ pain

TMJ treatment doesn’t have to result in surgery. First, our dentists start with lifestyle changes as the initial step of your treatment. They may recommend giving up chewing gum and encouraging participation in stress-free activities.

Most likely, they will administer a custom-made nightguard to reduce tension on your TMJ joint. This mouthguard is especially helpful if the cause of your TMJ disorder is grinding and clenching your teeth while sleeping.
