Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction can Cause Headaches
Are you familiar with TMJ Disorder / Dysfunction, also known as TMD dysfunction? Many acquaint jaw pain and jaw clicking with the temporomandibular joint but this could also be the cause of headaches, too. At Beautiful Lake Ridge Smiles, we can help with TMJ disorder. Dr. Carlos G. Wiesse is well-versed in various TMJ treatment disorders and offers help to those in and around the Grand Prairie, TX area.
TMJ and Headaches
Your jaw position can impact your health and wellness in many ways. TMJ associated symptoms can include pain in the jaw, the ears, the neck, the head, and the back. Jaw pain can radiate up into the head and clenching your jaw, due to stress, could translate to a headache, too. If you’ve got headaches and think you may also have TMJ disorder, it’s worth investigating TMJ treatment options and migraine treatment. Treatment could help take away pain in the jaw, headaches, and other associated symptoms.
TMJ problems happen due to many issues, such as stress, accidents, grinding the teeth, heredity, and poor jaw alignment and Dr. Wiesse can tailor a treatment plan that suits your specific situation. Treatment can prevent and even eliminate problems related to your jaw, including headaches.
