Do You Have Chronic Headaches?

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is one of the most complex in the body, allowing for the jawbone to move up, down, and side to side. If these joints and surrounding muscles are misaligned or overworked, it can lead to TMJ disorder (TMD). If the TM joint is misaligned, this can put a lot of pressure on the jaw and teeth, such as with chronic teeth grinding and clenching. Consequently, the most common symptom of TMD is chronic headaches and migraines.

These tension headaches are often around the temples and may feel as though a tight band is wrapped around the head. Tension headaches can be frequent and may be so intense, they are oftentimes misdiagnosed as migraines and treated with pain relieving medication. However, as long as a misaligned bite and a dislocated or damaged TMJ is present and not treated at the source, these tension headaches will most likely continue. Therefore, it is critical that treatment be received from a dentist trained in neuromuscular disorders like those related to the TMJ in Lafayette, IN.

Since having the Invisalign treatment, I have not had any headaches, I don’t have any of the jaw clenching or neck pain when I wake up in the morning so that has made a world of difference.
