TMJ and Headaches DenTist Kenmore

TMJ and HeadachesThe TMJ is the joint which connects the lower jaw to the skull. Problems with this joint can lead to pain, chronic headaches and neck, back and shoulder pain. For some people they will also experience pain when opening the jaw which can be associated with clicking, popping and sometimes even locking of the joint.

Most TMJ problems are caused by grinding and clenching of the teeth particularly when we sleep.

Other symptoms of TMJ problems can be ringing in the ears, loose teeth, receding gums, worn chipped or cracked teeth and fillings, pain and sensitivity in the teeth, crowded teeth, difficulty opening the mouth, loss of chewing efficiency and even difficulty swallowing.

There are many causative factors, which often happen in combination as a problem of the joint and stress on its surrounding structures. These factors can be catergorised under two major headings as structural factors and emotional factors; and include things such as injury to the joint, arthritis, poor posture, stress and clenching and grinding the teeth.

Onset of TMJ problems can be quite gradual for some and sudden for others but fortunately there are several ways in which to ease or treat the condition.

At Evolve Dental Healing Dentist Kenmore, we look at the bite, jaw relationship, muscle alignment and function, lifestyle, stress levels and possible mineral deficiencies that may be causing or adding to your issues.

The objective of our treatment is to address all possible causes and factors involved in your particular problem so we employ a multi-faceted approach which involves body work, dental corrections to align the occlusion (bite), minerals and anti-inflammatory medications, addressing lifestyle factors and providing an orthotic mouth splint if appropriate.

The aim is to reduce the damaging effects of night grinding and clenching on the muscles of the head, neck and jaws, to support the jaw in a more balanced position, eliminate chronic pain and aid in more restful and regenerative sleep whilst at the same time helping improve your energy levels and general health.
