Headache, Migraine and TMJ Symptoms Treated
As a TruDenta® dental practice, we can treat head and jaw pain symptoms including:
Chronic Headaches, migraine, face and jaw pain, TMJ/TMD, tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and other dental force related symptoms.
Age and Wear
As the body ages, so does the bite. Natural teeth wear at different rates from years of dental work. For example, fillings and crowns, for example, can be made from amalgam, precious metals, ceramics, etc. and other materials. The different materials within your mouth wear at different rates and can cause improper alignment of the teeth which forces the muscles and tendons to work harder to compensate for the imbalances. As we age, joints and cartilage are reduced in thickness. This changes angles and forces within the overall dentomandibular region. As you grow older, your teeth and bite change, potentially causing many of the headache and jaw pain symptoms which can be treated by our TruDenta trained and equipped practice.
Head, Neck or Body Trauma
Vehicle accidents, sporting activities or even your baby bumping his/her head against yours can be causes of force related symptoms in the head, neck and jaw. The list of events that can cause head trauma is long. Current symptoms may have been created years ago by an event long since forgotten or dismissed as minor. Head, neck or jaw trauma can cause stretching or tearing of the ligaments and muscles along with other unseen and often undiagnosed dental force imbalances and impairment.
Dental Repair and Orthodontics
Some of the causes of symptoms can be poor adaptation to completed dental work, aged restorative materials and, in some cases, from poor adaptation of the patient to orthodontic changes. Wisdom teeth extraction can also be a potential source of dental force related symptoms.
Stress, Diet, Posture and Frequent Computer Use
If you lead a stress free life, congratulations! You are less likely to have dental force related symptoms in your head, neck and jaw. For the other 99% of the world, stress and poor posture (such as from sitting in front of a computer for hours or long commutes) can result in many of the symptoms outlined above. Weight gain and improper eating habits can also contribute to your head, neck and jaw pain.
