If you are experiencing chronic headaches that are causing discomfort and impacting your daily life, it might be worth consulting with your dentist. TMJ symptoms could be the root cause of your headaches, and a proper diagnosis can help alleviate your pain.
When your jaw is misaligned, it can result in TMJ symptoms which can lead to headaches. The first step in treating this condition is to alleviate the pain associated with the misaligned jaw. Dr. Silver can use a TENS unit to relax your jaw muscles and find the ideal resting position for your jaw.
After relieving your pain, Dr. Silver will determine the best long-term solution for your unique oral health needs. This can include a range of TMJ treatment methods, such as orthotic devices, full mouth reconstruction, dental restorations, or orthodontics.
Dr. Silver will recommend the most suitable treatment option for you based on the severity of your jaw misalignment and oral health needs. If you are struggling with chronic headaches, contact Dr. Silver today to schedule a TMJ consultation at Southcentre Dental Clinic in Calgary, Alberta.
