tmj & headache treatment in herrimanSevere headaches and migraines can interfere with your ability to focus and perform basic tasks. Headaches and migraines can result from biomechanical issues including Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ or TMD) and orthodontic problems that have gone unaddressed. There are multiple factors that may increase the frequency and severity of headaches and migraines. For severe headaches & TMJ treatment in Herriman, UT, turn to our 5-star rated orthodontists to learn about all your options.

What Is TMJ?

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder is a typically painful disorder caused by stress in the joint that connects your jaws, allowing them to open and close when you speak or chew. Stress on this joint causes general discomfort or even extreme pain. You may have been suffering with it for years or recently acquired it as a result of an injury or accident. Dansie Orthodontics uses effective dentistry techniques to provide patients with relief from chronic headaches and discomfort from TMJ.

Find the Reason for Your Pain

It is challenging to self-diagnose chronic headaches, migraines, and TMJ. Some patients experience frequent and severe headaches with a sharp pain on one or both sides of the head. Others have pain in the jaw, face, neck, and ears. In addition, tinnitus, vertigo, and dizziness may also exacerbate the condition. Unbalanced dental forces may be the reason for your migraine, headache, and TMJ.

End Pain with Treatment

You do not need to suffer from headaches, migraines, and TMJ. Our orthodontic treatments can produce positive effects that go beyond the original complaint and address issues including:

• Chronic headaches
• Migraines
• Temporomandibular Joint Disorder
• Chronic neck pain
• Tooth grinding and clenching
• Tinnitus

Improve Your Bite

Dr. Dansie uses a bite simulator to check how your bite is aligned while receiving orthodontic treatment. The bite simulator may also help determine your jaw’s ideal alignment. Even if your teeth are straight, your bite can be adjusted using orthodontic treatment in order to align your upper and lower jaw appropriately. This option is non-invasive and should be the first solution for headaches, migraines and more.
