Did you know that your frequent tension headaches could be related to problems with your jaw? TMJ, or TMD, is a jaw disorder that can cause chronic jaw pain, headaches, worn teeth and other disruptive symptoms. As part of our family dental care at Bayshore Dental Center, we proudly provide successful TMJ treatments to eliminate or greatly reduce your discomfort. Temporomandibular joint dysfunction/disorder (TMJ) affects millions of adults each year. Although it can greatly impact a patient's quality of life, TMJ can be treatable by a qualified and experienced dentist. You can trust that Bayshore Dental Center carries unique knowledge surrounding TMJ/TMD and we utilize the most advanced technology available when diagnosing and treating your condition.
Addressing your headaches with your dentist can ensure you get the most effective, long-lasting relief. Tension headaches that are caused by TMJ originate from the jaw joint, surrounding muscles, and the jaw itself. During TMJ, patients often engage in teeth clenching or grinding, which can lead to tension headaches. At Bayshore Dental Center, we value the importance of an accurate diagnosis when it comes to your tension headaches or TMJ symptoms. Dr. Sheehy will conduct a series of specialized tests to best determine the cause of your symptoms before developing an appropriate treatment plan.
We realize that no two smiles are alike. Dr. Sheehy is prepared to provide personalized TMJ treatment to ensure your specific symptoms are addressed in a way that is most comfortable and convenient to you. Getting help for your TMJ & TMD sooner rather than later can make a profound difference in your quality of life and protect your dental health.
