The TMJ Connection

Headaches caused by TMJ are very common. Muscle tension resulting from a misaligned jaw can easily cause generalized facial pain as well as tension style headaches. What’s more, pressure placed on the trigeminal nerve by jaw misalignment can cause headaches that are similar to migraines – headaches that may interfere with your ability to work, interact with family and friends, or even get out of bed.

Houston neuromuscular dentist Dr. Scott Young knows how to detect TMJ and how to treat the disorder when it is causing headaches. With a customized neuromuscular dentistry treatment, you may be able to both treat immediate symptoms and prevent future occurrences of headaches caused by TMJ. What you can expect from treatment will be discussed in more detail during your neuromuscular dentistry evaluation.
