DON’T LET TMJ RUIN YOUR DAY IN HOOVER, AL

Dr. Perrigo, and his son, Dr. Perrigo, are your best bet for delivering comprehensive dentistry solutions in the Hoover, Alabama area. This true family dental office can even handle the sort of things that other dentists may not be prepared to address.

Today, we’d like to talk about one such issue: recurring headaches (and the related neck pain, and sore jaws) linked to TMJ troubles.

If you are in the throes of that kind of misery, you may not even consider that it is an oral health problem, you just know that you want it to go away!

Keep reading, and then be sure to get in touch with our team to schedule your TMJ consultation with Dr. Perrigo (either of them)!

Aspirin Doesn’t Solve The Problem

Regular doses of aspirin may help take the edge off but it won’t be enough to provide complete relief from the agony caused by your chronic headaches.

And if you have you been to your general practitioner only to find that medical treatments only obscure the issue rather than offering salvation, you just might feel like giving up hope. But don’t!

The Dentist Can Help!

When it comes to headaches, there is another, less obvious, way to resolve your issues.

You can visit a highly-skilled dentist like Dr. Perrigo who is trained to diagnose and treat headaches with state-of-the-art oral appliances that are custom designed to fit your unique needs.

In our Hoover, Al dentist’s office, we treat patients all the time who come in complaining about headaches and others issues related to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).

Here’s the connection between headaches and your TMJ: we have found that patients with TMJ issues often clench or grind their teeth a night, a condition commonly called bruxism.

Another thing to consider: there may be alignment issues at work too or perhaps you have experienced some sort of seemingly unrelated trauma that agitated the TMJ.

Fortunately, no matter what brought you to this state, our team can effectively treat TMJ issues and/or chronic headaches using special mouth splints or mouthguards.

How It Happens

No two cases are ever the same, though there are always similarities. One device that we have had success using is the NTI splint. This special acrylic device is custom fit to your teeth and inhibits the molars from touching. You will just need to wear the device at night as a way to take the pressure off the TMJ.

You see, patients who clench or grind their teeth at night often do it involuntarily for hours at a time. Imagine the amount of constant pressure you are putting on your temple and TMJ! Not good!

Here’s what is good: the NTI device can quickly eliminate the pressure and begin relieving your headaches.

There are also other good options available here at Perrigo Dental Care.

When the source of your headaches is definitely due to an issue with your TMJ, we can create a custom fit appliance that will move the lower jaw in a more appropriate position.

We use digital X-rays and panoramic X-rays to diagnose and plan out treatments for your TMJ issues. Our TMJ mouthguard helps take the pressure off the TMJ and resolves clenching or grinding issues.

Reclaim Your Life Today!

You already know how headaches can negatively affect your life. We only hope that you will have been inspired by today’s post to let Dr. Perrigo help you reclaim your life.
