Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
Severe, chronic headaches are a major concern for a number of people in and around Calgary, Alberta. Oftentimes, these headaches interfere with work, social, and family activities, causing people to seek relief with prescription medications. While these medications can provide temporary relief, they cannot address the root cause of your headaches. For people who suffer from chronic headaches this means a life-long reliance on these prescriptions, and the potential for several more headaches in the years to come.
TMD and Headaches
One of the most frequently overlooked causes of chronic headaches is TMD, or temporomandibular joint disorder. TMD pulls and strains the muscles in your jaw, which can result in increased tension that leads to chronic, debilitating headaches. Left untreated, this disorder will continue to strain your muscles and produce severe headaches.
Calgary dentist Dr. Jennifer Silver has years of experience in detecting TMD. Once detected, Dr. Silver can offer you several options for TMD treatment that are directed at the source of your problem, and not just on fixing the side effects. Chronic headaches will interfere with every aspect of your life. Through a simple TMD evaluation at our comfortable Calgary office, you can address the source of your headaches, and begin living a life free of intense, debilitating pain.
If you live in or around Calgary, Alberta and suffer from chronic headaches, please contact Dr. Silver at Southcentre Dental Clinic to schedule a TMD evaluation today.
