It’s National Migraine & Headache Awareness Month, which is a great time to remind you that your Visialia, CA dentist can actually help ease this kind of pain.
Believe it or not, chronic headaches can sometimes be traced back to problems in your mouth, particularly with your temporomandibular joint, or TMJ. This is your jaw joint, and if it’s malfunctioning, it can cause all sorts of unpleasant symptoms.
It’s also related to teeth grinding, often a nighttime, involuntary habit where you grind your teeth and clench your jaw while you sleep.
Along with headaches, this habit can cause damage to your teeth, and you may also experience lockjaw, ear pain, jaw and facial soreness, and muscle tension in the neck and shoulders.
Visit us to find effective treatment for TMJ problems that will prevent teeth grinding, heal your jaw joint naturally, and help you start feeling better.
