Can TMJ Treatment Options in Michigan Get Rid of My Headaches?
In short, yes. In addition to eliminating headaches, TMJ and TMD treatment will help…
- Eliminate earaches
- Prevent nighttime grinding which can wear away the surface of your teeth
- Protect your teeth from fractures
- Relieve pressure in the mouth
- Increase mobility of the joints in your jaw
- Improve your overall balance
- Eliminate oral pain that makes it difficult to chew, swallow and speak correctly
Best of all, you will enjoy quality sleep with no pain or discomfort and prevent that feeling of dizziness during the day that you may have been experiencing.
Why Can’t I Open My Mouth Wide Without Clicking?
While yawning, chewing and speaking, you may experience jaw pain and discomfort, as well as a clicking or popping sound. Overuse of the jaw can cause stress on the joints. Sometimes jaw popping happens when you overextend the jaw, such as when you open your mouth too wide while yawning. At other times, it can result from issues regarding the operation of the temporomandibular joints or those joints responsible for connecting the jaw bone to the sides of the skull.
TMD can lead to:
- Trouble opening the mouth wide
- Pain and discomfort
- Tenderness in the face or jaw
- Jaws that “lock” in a closed or open position
- Swelling of the face
- Neck aches
- Ear aches
- Difficulty eating
If you answered yes to any of these, reach out to our sleep apnea clinic in Michigan. In the meantime, get some relief from jaw and craniofacial pain by eating softer foods, avoiding chewing gum, and practicing relaxation techniques to control jaw tension, recommends the ADA.
Here at the Sleep Apnea Center of Michigan, we have developed a system for diagnosing and treating craniofacial pain, including facial pain, joint pain, ear pain, and migraines. We also offer relief for sleep-related breathing disorders, which we can provide treatment for without surgery.
