TMJ Could be the Reason for Your Headaches

Headaches are a common complaint for people but when they happen frequently or are severe in nature, it gives us reason to pause and wonder “why”. Your headaches could be related to TMJ, temporomandibular joint disorder, also known as TMD. Dr. Jason Phillips at Family Dentistry of Knoxville can help. He can help with an assessment for TMJ as well as help you explore TMJ treatment options that could stop your TMJ headaches as well as stop other TMJ symptoms for good.

Stop the Pain of TMJ at Family Dentistry of Knoxville

When TMJ strikes, there can be a variety of symptoms. Jaw clicking, jaw pain, ear pain, pain behind the eyes, stiff and sore neck, shoulders, and back, and headaches are all common complaints. When the alignment of your jaw is off kilter the impact can be far-reaching.

Dr. Phillips and his Knoxville dental team would be happy to assess your jaw and symptoms as well as help you find out about treatments for TMJ that could stop those headaches as well as other related pain.

Stress can exacerbate headaches as well as TMJ. Dr. Phillips can help you stop making things worse when stressful situations occur. TMJ and stress are a vicious circle, one exacerbating the other. Dental work, a mouth guard designed to keep your jaw in place while you sleep, anti-inflammatory medications, or other neuromuscular dentistry approaches can all help.
