How Can My Jaw Cause Headaches?
You have two joints that control your lower jaw, called your temporomandibular joints (TMJ). In the case of TMJ disorder (TMD), those joints and the muscles used by them can get sore and cause pain or discomfort, including chronic headaches and migraines.
Bruxism, or unconsciously grinding or clenching your teeth, can also put extra pressure on muscles and joints, which can lead to headaches.
How Can A Dental Splint Help With TMD Or Bruxism Headaches?
At Volterra Dental, we normally treat TMD and bruxism with a special device called a dental splint that is worn over your teeth like an athletic mouthguard. Both treatments can relieve the pressure and soreness in your jaw muscles, which can alleviate the headaches and migraines associated with it.
Can Dental Botox® Really Help With Migraines?
Recently, the FDA approved the use of Botox for dentists in the treatment of migraines. Note that this is not a cure for migraines, and there can be side effects. That said, many of our patients have gained relief from some of the worst symptoms of migraines. Our dentists are certified to offer Botox in our Los Alamitos, CA dental office.
