TMJ and Migraines: What is the Connection?

Migraines…even reading the word can make you shudder, especially for those who have experienced them, either first-hand or by comforting a friend or family member who has. The thing about recurring migraines is that they are so much worse than a normal headache, especially when you throw light sensitivity and nausea into the mix.

Although this may come as a surprise to many, relief from those menacing migraines can be found at your dental office…that is, if your dentist is a neuromuscular dentist.

So much depends on your jaw (TMJ) position, how your teeth come together, your “bite”. If it’s not where it should be, you may not be feeling as good as you should be, either…and TMJ migraines can be a nasty result of this. Neuromuscular dentists Doctors Jon and Valle Rischer can treat TMJ migraine headaches, and have received extensive post-graduate training at the Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies to provide this treatment.

The team at Dentistry by Design has the knowledge and experience necessary to help you get your bite where it needs to be to alleviate these symptoms. Dentistry by Design is the only dental office in Columbia where LVI-trained dentists practice neuromuscular dentistry. Is it a quick and easy process—unfortunately, not usually—most good things take time, remember? Rest assured, though, that the team at Dentistry by Design will be there every step of the way, and the comfort and relief that patients experience is well worth it.
