Many types of migraines can be caused by dental issues. And quite a few dental patients who suffer from headaches and chronic migraines have discovered that undergoing dental treatment can help to reduce or even eliminate their migraine problems.
When you’re trying to determine if dental treatment can help you with migraines, there are a few things we can do. One of the first things we’ll look at is your temporomandibular joint to make sure you aren’t suffering from TMJ. This is what occurs when the temporomandibular joint is improperly aligned, causing chronic pain and headaches. This pain can only be treated with dental therapy or procedures.
Below are a few things we’ll do here at SpringRock Dental to determine whether TMJ is the cause of your headaches or migraines:
Depending on the results of the initial visit, we may do additional tests including MRIs or CT scans to determine whether or not dental treatment can help with your headaches. Depending on the diagnosis, we may use something as simple as a corrective mouthpiece or as complex as oral reconstructive surgery.
If you suffer from chronic headaches or migraines and believe that dental treatment may be the answer, please contact SpringRock Dental today. Our family dental office is located here in Aurora, Colorado.
