Relief From TMD Headaches In Lithia, FL
Do you frequently have a headache, discomfort or pressure in your jaw joint, ringing in your ears, or even high sinus pressure? Does your jaw frequently pop, click, grind, or grate frequently? Is it becoming more difficult for you to floss and brush your teeth because opening your mouth wide makes you feel sore or uncomfortable?
If you are answering yes to any of these questions, and especially more than one of these questions you may be suffering from TMD which can require TMJ/TMD treatment. TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) affects people around the globe and can be a source of discomfort, and frustration.
Why Does TMD Occur?
TMD can occur for some of the following reasons:
- Bad Bite – If your jaw has somehow become misaligned, or you naturally have an uneven or bad bite, it can cause TMD to occur which can result in getting headache and other symptoms.
- Injury of the TMJ – Your TMJ (temporomandibular joint) can become injured, particularly the cartilage around the TMJ. If this happens, TMJ treatment often can help restore your TMJ back to good health.
- Teeth Grinding – If you grind your teeth in tense situations, or especially while your sleeping it can result in injury of your TMJ and lead to the need for TMJ treatment. Teeth grinding often can cause a headache later in the day as well.
