Eliminate migraine headache with TMJ Migraine Treatment by Dr. Wei – Manhattan Dentist
Are you suffering from headaches, clicking in your jaw joints, or grinding your teeth while you sleep?
You may need your jaw aligned to eliminate your teeth grinding and migraine headaches. This is known as “TMJ Migraine Treatment” by Dr. Wei – General Dentist in Manhattan.
Temporomandibular joint disorder – more commonly known as TMJ or TMD – is a condition that affects the area where the jawbone attaches to the skull. With TMJ, common jaw motions like chewing and speaking can be painful experiences. In severe cases, the disorder can also cause headaches, ear aches, and discomfort in other areas of your body like your neck and shoulders. At our dental office, we provide a variety of treatments designed to reduce the symptoms of TMJ disorder. By detecting the specific cause of your TMJ, Dr. Wei can utilize the ideal technique to most effectively alleviate your TMJ symptoms.
Cartilage recession, the presence of arthritis, excessive grinding or clenching, jaw misalignment, and a variety of other issues can be the root cause of TMJ disorder. The occurrence of one or more of these issues can result in a number of different symptoms. Common symptoms of TMJ include:
- Painful jaw movement
- Popping or clicking in the jaw joints
- Trouble opening and closing the mouth
- Chronic headaches or ear aches
- Face, neck, and shoulder pain
- Numbness in the arms and/or fingers
How TMJ Therapy / Headache Prevention Works:
“TMJ disorder” may be to blame if you are suffering from headaches, a “popping” or “clicking” jaw, or if you’re grinding your teeth while you sleep. “TMJ” is a disorder caused when the joints that hold your jaw in place become misaligned and the nerves and muscles become irritated and cause these nagging and often painful symptoms.
Dr. Wei has helped countless patients find relief with TMJ therapy and can provide you with relief without surgery. Dr. Wei uses an FDA-approved oral appliance which aligns your jaw and alleviates the symptoms of TMJ headaches and other symptoms.
