If you suffer from frequent migraines, our professional and experienced team is here to find the relief you need.
TMJ migraines are a type of headache that is caused by the temporomandibular joint. When this joint is not functioning properly, it can cause pain and other symptoms. One of the most common symptoms of TMJ migraines is a dull, constant headache. This type of pain is often worse in the morning or after eating. Other symptoms include neck pain, dizziness, ringing in the ears, and difficulty swallowing. The exact cause of TMJ migraines is not known, but it is believed that they are caused by a misalignment of the jaw. Treatment for TMJ migraines typically involves wearing a mouth guard or splint at night to prevent the jaw from moving out of place. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to correct the problem.
