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 headaches, you should speak to the experienced neuromuscular dentists at Pinnacle Dental Aesthetics about addressing your condition.
Caused by an inflammation of the temporomandibular joint (the joint that connects your jaw to your lower skull), 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 here:
- Chronic tension headaches
- Shoulder pain
- Upper back pain
- Jaw aches
- Neck pain
- Ringing ears
- Clicking jaw
If you’re suffering from migraine headaches that don’t seem to have an obvious environmental or physical cause, you might be suffering from TMJ.
Our Braintree-area neuromuscular dentists are experienced with this condition. We know what to look for when diagnosing the cause of your migraines. And when we diagnose TMJ, we know what to do to treat your migraine headaches and return you to peace.
