Are you a long-term sufferer of headaches and jaw pains? Your stressful life may be contributing to the problem, but our Orlando dental office might have the treatment you need to get out of pain and discomfort.
Constant headaches and jaw pains are often linked to an issue with your temporomandibular joint (TMJ). This joint is at work each time you open and close your mouth, which is something we do thousands of times a day. Unfortunately, people often mask TMJ issues with medication and never get to the root of the issue.
TMJ issues can cause:
- Headaches and neck pains
- Jaw muscle pains
- Clicking, popping, or grinding of the jaw joint
- Grinding or clenching of the teeth
Problems like grinding or clenching put stress on your jaw and actually wear down your teeth, increasing the risk of breaks or root problems. At Overmeyer Family Dental, we have developed a treatment that alleviate jaw pain. We’re using a small oral appliance that you can wear at night. It works almost instantly and will not disrupt your sleep.
