Frequent headaches can quickly become a serious problem for your quality of life, and they can make it harder to take care of professional and personal responsibilities. Many people who have ongoing troubles with headaches may struggle because of problems with their jaw joints and muscles that have gone unaddressed. You should know that at our Katy, TX dentist’s office, we are prepared to help patients struggling with headaches and jaw problems through a process of Disclusion Time Reduction therapy. Unresolved tension from a flawed bite can cause people to experience chronic pain, and it can make them more susceptible to problems like dental damage, teeth grinding, and limited jaw movement. After examining your bite function, we can find the correct course of action to improve your jaw movement and address your problems.
How Does A Problem With My Jaw Cause Headaches?
The nerves that control your jaw movement are also responsible for sensation in your face, head, and neck. If your jaw joints and muscles are affected by misalignment or excess tension, the nerves can be affected as well, leading to discomfort in several areas. These problems can occur due to several factors – when problems are present, the issue is known as TMJ disorder. If it is not addressed, you can continue to suffer headaches, or even persistent migraines!
Disclusion Time Reduction Helps You By Correcting Bite Imbalances
Through Disclusion Time Reduction therapy, your dentist can improve the alignment and movement of your bite in order to take care of tension in your jaw. Before moving forward with therapy, we need to identify where imbalances are present. Tekscan pressure mapping technology can find areas where your teeth meet and separate unevenly. By restoring the balance of your bite, we can start to relieve your troubles with TMJ disorder.
Will I Need Dental Work To Fully Improve My Bite?
Sometimes, existing oral health issues make it difficult for a person to bite down and release pressure evenly. It may take orthodontic work to help you – if so, we may be able to help with Invisalign treatment. It is also necessary in some cases to restore certain teeth with dental crowns. This treatment can be recommended when you have trouble putting full pressure on certain teeth.
