Headache and Jaw Pain.

 

The tempromandibular joint or jaw joint is a complex joint that can often be affected by a number of factors. The interrelationship between your teeth, jaw joints, head and neck muscles, and head posture often dictates that a problem in one of these area can affect others. If you suffer from any of the following, an evaluation may be needed.

  • Headaches
  • Jaw joint pain
  • Jaw joint noise or clicking
  • Ear congestion
  • Dizziness
  • Ringing in ears
  • Loose teeth
  • Clenching or grinding
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Chewing difficulties
  • Hot & cold sensitivity of teeth

We provide various forms of detection including an analysis of internal jaw joint structures. We can provide a Doppler (Ultrasound) analysis of each jaw joint. We can also provide X-Ray, CT Scan, or MRI analysis of each joint. It may be needed to peform muscle hyperactivity testing.

For treatment, we can provide non-invasice deprogramming of muscles to relieve pain. New devices or adjustments to existing devices may be needed.
