Treatment for Headache in Smyrna GA area
If you suffer from frequent head and neck pain, it can greatly impact your productivity and quality of life. In fact, many individuals suffer for years with headaches, never truly finding adequate relief. Do you know that many headaches can be attributed to problems with the jaw? At Smyrna Dental & Headache Center in Smyrna, GA, we take a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and treating jaw joint issues that may be the source of your headache so you can finally be free from pain.

How jaw joint issues lead to headaches

The contact between the upper and lower teeth is called occlusion. If your teeth do not meet and line up properly when the mouth is closed, this is referred to as malocclusion. If the upper and lower jaw do not meet up evenly, it can cause several symptoms including difficulty or pain while chewing or damage to the teeth, bone and muscles. This jaw damage can lead to pain in the jaw, neck, and head.

Symptoms of malocclusion

There are many different signs of an uneven bite, including:

  • Broken or damaged teeth
  • Extensive wear to the teeth
  • Jaw pain
  • Pain in the muscles surrounding the jaw
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain

Treatment for headaches and other pain caused by malocclusion

The first step to beginning treatment for chronic headaches and jaw pain is to determine the source. During the consultation process we will perform a thorough evaluation to identity the unique causes of your pain. From there, we can design a comprehensive treatment program that may include the following:

  • Light therapy - Used to reduce inflammation and relieve pain.
  • Ultrasound therapy – Used to relax the muscles and improve circulation to relieve pain.
  • Orthodontic treatment – Used to correct the bite.
  • Oral appliance therapy – Used at home to reduce pressure on the jaw and align the bite while sleeping.
  • Home exercises – Used to help relax and strengthen the jaw as well as increase mobility.
