TMJ and Headache Treatment
Imagine, a Morning Without Pain!
For many of us, jaw pain or discomfort is a common part of our morning. Others can experience headaches (including migraines) throughout their day. In many cases, these headaches, along with a whole array of other uncomfortable symptoms may be caused by TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder. Sometimes TMJ is caused by a bad bite and other times it is caused by, or accompanied by bruxism, also known as the clenching and grinding of the teeth during sleep. This pressure throughout the night can have detrimental effects upon your day, including fatigue resulting from a lack of proper sleep, headaches and pain, and even affect the way your teeth look. No one wants a worn-down smile!
All of our TMJ disorder treatments are customized to meet your particular needs and can include orthodontic treatment and use of a splint guard. Dr. Jack is certified in and offers the NTI-TSS (Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition Tension Suppression System), a small splint that fits over your teeth. This device can reduce or even eliminate pain resulting from TMJ disorder and nighttime clenching and grinding with little to no discomfort.
Stop in today for a consultation to see if a NTI splint can relieve your pain and help you get a great night’s sleep!
