What is TMJ?
Do you suffer from frequent headaches or migraines? Do you experience soreness or pain in the jaw? Dr. Sanchez provides TMJ/Migraine therapy to relieve your pain.
The TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, is the joint that connects the lower jaw (mandible) to the rest of the head. When this joint becomes misaligned, stressed, or damaged, it may result in serious pain and discomfort. One of the most common symptoms of a TMJ disorder (TMD) is frequent headaches or migraines. These headaches may range from minor annoyances to life-altering pain.
What is TMJ and migraine treatment?
Dr. Michael Sanchez, DDS and our team are committed to doing all we can to help you live free from the pain of headaches and migraines. The treatment depends on the cause of the pain, and we will customize your treatment to fit your specific needs and desires. One of the most under-diagnosed yet successful ways to treat headaches is maintaining a proper jaw and tooth relationship. The mastication (chewing) system involves an intricate balance among the jaws, teeth, and muscles. When this system is out of balance in any way, it can cause serious pain. Our dentist has been trained in diagnosing whether headaches are being caused by disharmony in the chewing system. If we determine that correcting the chewing system will result in headache relief, we will map out your treatment plan for long-term headache relief.
