Get Much-Needed Relief with Award-Winning Care
Do you suffer from severe headaches and migraines? If so, do they 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. And, there are multiple factors that may increase their frequency and severity. For severe headaches and TMJ treatment in West Jordan, UT, turn to our 5-star-rated orthodontists to learn 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.
What Is Causing Your Pain?
It is a challenge 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 aggravate the condition. In addition, unbalanced dental forces may be the reason for your migraine, headache, and TMJ.
Treatment with Positive Effects
You do not need to suffer from headaches, migraines, and TMJ. Our orthodontic treatments can produce positive results that go beyond the original complaint. These treatments address issues including:
• Chronic headaches
• Temporomandibular Joint Disorder
• Chronic neck pain
• Tooth grinding and clenching
Take the First Step to 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.
