Where can I find headache relief?

If you suffer from headaches, breathing issues, dizziness, locked jaw, ear pain or snoring, it could be your Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ). Your Temporomandibular Joint is located close to your ear between your upper and lower jaw.

People with Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) can experience severe pain or discomfort that may either be temporary or last for many years. A complete dental and medical evaluation is required for proper diagnosis of TMD.

To evaluate whether you have TMD, your doctor will check for a variety of symptoms, including clicking or popping of the jaw joint and diagnostic wear patterns of the teeth. Many patients suffer from severe bruxism or grinding of the teeth at night. This can be harmful to your teeth and cause TMJ pain. Some patients simply clench their teeth during the day or at night. Clenching of the teeth is usually linked to increased stress levels. People with clenching, grinding or bruxism habits wear their tooth’s enamel away faster than normal and more frequently suffer from TMD.
