From bad posture to allergies to food choices to stress, there are many reasons for you to have headaches. However, if you have a TMJ disorder, headaches aren’t your only symptom. Your TMJ is your temporomandibular joint and when that becomes inflamed, that can create dysfunction in your jaw joint.
So, if you are also noticing:
- Jaw pain
- Popping sounds when you chew
- Neck or shoulder pain
- Teeth grinding or clenching
- Ringing in your ears
Those are all symptoms of a TMJ disorder. That’s where we can help! We can create a custom-fit mouthguard that will give you jaw relief and give your mouth a chance to heal. You may also benefit from our clear aligner treatment. If your teeth alignment is out of place, this can also cause TMJ problems!
