Smyrna Dental & Implant Center explains the signs a headache may require dental treatment

Posted By

Dr. David Lamothe and his team in Smyrna provide headache treatment.
For patients suffering from chronic headaches or jaw pain, Dr. David Lamothe and his team in Smyrna provide headache treatment. Frequent migraines and headaches may be signs of a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. The TMJ is the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull. When the jaw is misaligned or there are problems with the bite, the TMJ can be overextended. This leads to joint inflammation and headaches. Our Smyrna Center offers headache treatment by finding the underlying cause of the problem.

A headache may be a sign of a dental problem.

Headaches related to TMJ problems are often misdiagnosed first as tension or stress-related headaches. When in fact, the pain may be caused by something else. Headaches, jaw pain, and popping sounds by your ears are common symptoms of a TMJ disorder. Each patient is unique, so the symptoms may vary. Other symptoms may include:
  • Jaw tenderness
  • Jaw tightness or locking
  • Pain behind the eyes
  • Discomfort when opening your mouth widely
  • Pain near your ears when eating
  • Stiff facial muscles when you wake up

Headache dental treatment center

If your pain has become a chronic problem that is affecting your daily life, it is time to seek professional help. Patients may experience the following:
  • One or more headaches per week
  • Two or more missed days of work per month due to headaches
  • Pain in the jaw, face, or neck that has lingered for more than a year
Dr. Lamothe works to address the cause of your headache symptoms rather than temporarily masking the pain. Following a consultation and evaluation, a personalized treatment plan is created to address the patient’s needs. Corrective treatments address uncomfortable or incorrect bites that could be causing your jaw strain and headaches. Treatments are first performed in the office and then continued at home. The objective is to treat the cause of your headaches, to improve your bite, and to lessen the strain on your muscles and joints.

Stop suffering from headache pain. Schedule an appointment with Dr. David Lamothe at Smyrna Dental & Implant Center where smiles are contagious. Call (770) 432-1344.
