Are you experiencing jaw pain and headaches related to your oral health? If so, contact the Calgary TMJ Treatment Centre. For some people, oral pain comes as the result of tooth decay or gum disease- but for others, jaw problems can be the source of significant discomfort. If you’ve been suffering from TMJ or TMD, the Calgary TMJ Treatment Centre may be able to help. They make it an essential part of their practice to address issues relating to jaw pain and misalignment.
A ‘bad bite’, or what is technically referred to as malocclusion can result in TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder). In other words, when your teeth are misaligned they put an added strain on the muscles in your jaw. When your jaw muscles are strained they compensate by constantly contracting. These contractions lead to muscle spasm, pain, soreness and a build up of lactic acid. As your body tries to flush out the muscles, these muscles experience an increase in blood flow that oftentimes results in a headache- pounding or crushing pain.
Lippitt Dental can treat TMJ and TMD. Call the Calgary TMJ Treatment Centre at 403-286-2525 and request an appointment. Their staff understands what it means to experience continual pain, and they’re able to help.
So, how do you know if you have a headache as a result of a bad bite or if you’re simply experiencing a headache? Using neuromascular dentistry, The Calgary TMJ Treatment Centre will determine the cause of your symptoms and treat your pain accordingly.
Why you need a comfortable bite: If you are diagnosed with a ‘Bad Bite’ or TMJ/TMD, the Calgary TMJ Treatment Centre will start treatment by fitting you with a temporary stabilization appliance known as an orthotic (or splint). The role of the orthotic is to keep your muscles in a 'happy’ position. Once you are stabilized, they can begin to correct your bite. Sometimes it is possible to use orthodontic treatment to move the teeth into a position that is comfortable for the muscles.
Don’t suffer needlessly. Call Lippitt Dental today at 403-286-2525 and get help for your TMJ or TMD. They’ll treat your issues and help you get back to life without jaw pain or headaches, with dental care that works to alleviate the pressure from a malaligned bite and provide you with a comfortable bite that allows your muscles to relax.
