Headache Treatments

We strive to provide excellent dental care in a friendly environment to the families of Plainfield, IL because every healthy body needs a healthy mouth.

For patients who suffer from chronic headaches or jaw pain, your doctor provides headache treatments. Frequent migraines and headaches may be signs of a TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder. The TMJ connects the lower jaw to the skull. When there is misalignment of the jaw or teeth, this may cause overextension of the TMJ, leading to chronic joint inflammation and headaches. Possible headache treatments include mouth guards (for nighttime teeth grinding) and malocclusion treatments (for misaligned teeth).
