What Is TMJ Disorder?

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder is a painful disorder caused by stress on the joint that connects your jaws and allows them to open and close when you speak or chew. Stress on this joint causes general discomfort to extreme pain. You may have been suffering from it for years or recently acquired it due to an injury or accident; we can help you either way! Dansie Orthodontics uses effective dentistry techniques to provide relief from chronic headaches and discomfort from TMJ disorder.

Find the Reason for Your Pain

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

End Pain with Treatment

You do not need to suffer from headaches, migraines, and TMJ disorder. 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

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, contact us for an evaluation. It is important to address possible TMJ disorder before it does permanent damage. Additionally, you deserve relief from painful migraines!

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 to appropriately align your upper and lower jaw. This option is non-invasive and should be the first solution for headaches, migraines, and more.
