Q

What is TMJ or Can You Treat My Headaches and Migraines?

A

Temporomandibular joint disorder (also known as TMJ) is a chronic degenerative disease that may take years to develop. People who suffer from TMJ have a structural imbalance in their jaw-to-skull relationship that is caused by poor bite. This condition puts excessive pressure on the joints and surrounding tissues, twisting the jaw into an unnatural position. Often, a popping of clicking sound can actually be heard when a TMJ sufferer chews. Muscles in the face, back, neck, and shoulders may also be affected, leading to symptoms that range from headaches to numbness in the hands.

You may be a candidate for neuromuscular dentistry if you experience any of the following symptoms on a regular basis:

  • Headaches or Migraines
  • Pain or soreness around the jaw joints
  • Facial pain
  • Neck, shoulder or back pain
  • Numbness in your fingers and arms
  • Congestion or stuffiness of the ears
  • Worn, chipped or cracked teeth
  • Cracked, chipped or broken dental restorations
  • Unexplained loose teeth

TMJ can now be easily and painlessly detected using state-of-the-art electrical muscle stimulator or TENSing unit and a sophisticated piece of equipment called the Myotronics K7. Your facial muscles will be exercised, built-up toxins will be released and your jaw’s optimum relaxed position will be determined. In most cases, they can reposition your bite and complete treatment in a few short weeks.

Following treatment to correct TMJ, most patients experience a significant decrease to a complete cessation of symptoms. Imagine living headache free after enduring the pain for years! And as an added bonus, most patients of Dr. Sulzbach also report positive aesthetic results – some are even asked if they’ve had a facelift.
