Temporomandibular joint disorder is a serious condition affecting many of our patients in the Braintree area. If you’re suffering from the telltale TMJ migraine-like or tension headaches, you should speak to the experienced neuromuscular dentists at Pinnacle Dental Aesthetics about addressing your condition. TMJ may be the cause.
These symptoms are usually caused by a bite that is not properly aligned, which causes tension in the muscles of the head and neck. TMJ/TMD and the associated migraines are easy to confuse with many other conditions.
Common Symptoms of TMJ
Symptoms will vary from person to person, but common signs of TMJ are:
- Chronic tension headaches; migraines
- Facial pain
- Upper back pain
- Jaw soreness
- Neck pain
- Click jaw
- Worn teeth
- Ringing ears
If you’re suffering from headaches that don’t seem to have an obvious environmental or physical cause, you might have TMJ.
Our Braintree-area neuromuscular dentists are experienced with this condition. We know what to look for when diagnosing the cause of your headaches. And when we diagnose TMJ, we know what to do to treat your headaches and return you to comfort.
