Neuromuscular Dentistry Headache Treatments

It is estimated that over $4 billion is spent annually on over-the-counter pain medications for the treatment of headaches. Millions more is spent on prescription medications to address severe headaches such as migraines.

Medications can certainly play a role in headache treatment and may indeed be best for some patients. However, many people who suffer from chronic headaches are actually suffering from TMJ – and no amount of medication can correct this common disorder.

Treating TMJ Headaches

Headaches are one of the most common symptoms of TMJ and, when jaw misalignment is at the root of your pain, you need a neuromuscular dentistry solution for long-term results. The Pittsburgh headache dentists at Dentonics work individually with each patient to determine if TMJ is present and provide customized treatments to restore alignment and produce lasting relief.

Headache treatment options may include muscle relaxation with a TENS unit, jaw realignment with oral splints, and bite corrections through dental restorations. Which options are best for you will depend on your unique needs and are best determined during your headache treatment consultation with one of our experienced neuromuscular dentists.

If you suffer from chronic headaches in the Pittsburgh area, please contact Dentonics, Inc. today to schedule your neuromuscular dentistry evaluation.
