Temporomandibular Joint Treatment: How Migraine Headaches Relate To TMJ Dentistry

You may know people with Type-A personalities. You may even be Type-A yourself. Always connected, high energy and hard driving. These people may be even more successful than their associates and friends. That's the positive side. But there's a negative side, too. For some Type-A personalities, stress and anxiety can intensify the symptoms of TMJ disorder (Temporomandibular joint disorders). TMJ disorder symptoms can take the form of everything from migraine headaches and earaches, to neck, shoulder and facial pain. Teeth clenching, a stress-related habit, increases pressure on the jaw, resulting in pain or even lockjaw in severe cases.

You can't change your personality type (nor would you want to!), but treatment is available for those suffering from TMJ disorder. We can realign and reduce pressure on the jaw and reduce or even eliminate pain.

Don't stress out. Accentuate the positive. Call your dentist for help in diagnosing and treating TMJ disorder.
