Migraine headaches are a common symptom of temporomandibular disorder (TMJ), a condition where a misaligned bite causes improper jaw alignment and dysfunction. If you’ve ever experienced a Migraine Headache you know the debilitating pain and how disruptive it can be to your life.
Any doctor can prescribe medication to mask the pain of a migraine. This however is just a temporary solution designed to control the symptom rather than treating the root cause of the problem.
We have been trained in neuromuscular dentistry, and have much experience in treating migraine headaches. Our team has done substantial work in the areas of research, diagnosis, and treatment.
After a highly technical diagnostic process, Dr. Nelson and his team will be able to determine if a link exists between the function of your jaw joints and your migraine headaches. Once a link is established and a thorough diagnosis is made, our neuromuscular team will create a personalized treatment plan to realign your bite and alleviate your symptoms.
Treatment for migraine headaches may include the use of functional jaw orthopedics, medication, lifestyle changes, orthodontics or restorative procedures.
