Get Relief TMD Headache Relief In Farmington NM And Rio Rancho

TMJ treatment for TMD headache in Farmington NM Rio Rancho and Bloomfield NMYour tempormandibular joints, or TMJ, are the lower joints that connect your jawbone to your skull. Frequent, or overuse of these joints can result in a TMD, or temporomandibular disorder.

A tempormandibular disorder is characterized by a wide range of symptoms that include:

  • Frequent headaches
  • Jaw aches
  • Earaches
  • Jaw pain
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Jaw clicking or popping
  • Pain in the neck and shoulders

If you are experiencing soreness when you open or close your jaw, or any of these issues, you might want to come into our office for a TMJ/TMD evaluation.

TMJ issues can be very hard to live with, and can make daily life more difficult. The frequent headaches caused by a TMD can make it harder for patients to focus or find enjoyment in day-to-day activities. Fortunately, TMDs are completely treatable, and can heal over time. With treatment from the Sundance team you trust, you’ll be able to feel comfortable again, and experience greater jaw and smile health.

Find Relief for Your TMD Symptoms With Treatment From Your Sundance Dental Team

TMJ headaches and pain can be reduced with treatment from a Farmington dentist.

Temporomandibular joint disorders are often caused by bruxism, or tooth grinding, but may also have other causes. When you come into our office for a TMJ/TMD evaluation, we will determine the cause of your TMD, and use that information to prescribe the best possible TMJ treatment. Each patient is different and has unique needs. At Sundance Dental and Orthodontics, we will tailor a treatment plan that will accommodate you. Treatment may include adjusting the bite, reconstruction, or other restorative measures. If the source of your TMJ disorder is bruxism, we may offer you a special mouthpiece that will prevent you from grinding your teeth at night, and help alleviate your symptoms.

If you have been experiencing jaw pain, and would like to schedule an evaluation, call us at our office. We would be happy to answer any questions you might have, or to arrange a consultation if you are in the Farmington NM, Rio Rancho NM, Bloomfield NM, or Gallup NM area!
