TMJ Treatment for Headaches

tmjThe temporal mandibular (TMJ) joints are located near the ear, at the top of the lower jaw. These joints allow movement of your jaw.

TMJ disorders are caused by injury, arthritis, or habits such as grinding the teeth at night. These disorders may produce some of the following symptoms:

  • Earaches
  • Headaches
  • Clicking or grating noises with jaw movement
  • Pain opening or closing the mouth
  • Limited movement of the jaw

Treatment

The necessary course of treatment is dependent on the specific diagnosis and severity of the damage to the joint. However, we specialize in helping reduce the frequency and duration of the symptoms. In our experience, 90% of our patients experience a 90-100% reduction in pain. Ideal candidates are those who take multiple pain killers daily.
