Headaches from TMJ

Are Your Headaches Caused by TMJ? Call Family Dentistry of Knoxville!

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

Stop the Pain of TMJ with Dr. Jason A. Phillips, DDS

When TMJ strikes, there can be a variety of symptoms, especially when the alignment of your jaw is off-kilter, the impact can be far-reaching.

Common complaints include:

  • Jaw clicking
  • Jaw pain
  • Ear pain
  • Pain behind the eyes
  • Stiff and sore neck, shoulders, and back
  • Headaches

Dr. Jason A. 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 and other related pain.

When Stress Becomes Unbearable

Stress can exacerbate headaches as well as TMJ. Fortunately, Dr. Jason A. 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.
