TMJ – TMD Dentistry Tampa

Find TMD Headache Relief

Carrollwood patient was able to resolve headaches with TMJ treatment in Tampa.If you are experiencing jaw muscle soreness, headaches or migraines, or difficulty opening your mouth and sleeping problems, you could be suffering from problems involving TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint.) TMJ is the joint situated just in front of your ear; it is the joint that you feel when you open and shut your mouth and when you move your jaw from side to side. Any problems with your TMJ, it is called TMD (Temporomandibular Dysfunction). TMD can create the issues listed above: muscle soreness, headaches/migraines, difficulty opening your mouth and sleeping problems. Our dentists for TMJ can help alleviate this pain and get you feeling like you again.

TMD has a few different causes. It can be genetic (did one of your parents or siblings complain about a painful jaw?) or TMD can actually stem from some habits you may think are pretty harmless. Do you find yourself clenching your jaw or grinding your teeth? This can cause your teeth to become worn or sensitive and the extra pressure can lead to the TMJ becoming strained or damaged requiring TMJ treatment. As the TMJ continues to wear down or be strained, your lower jaw may hit nerves and blood vessels, leading to pain when using your jaw. At our TMD dentistry office in Tampa, a TMD or TMJ treatment plan can help this issue and our dentists for TMJ/TMD can help you with that treatment.

Headaches or TMD?

If you have severe headaches or have a ringing in your ears coupled with aching jaw muscles, you may have TMD. If you have seen a doctor and were diagnosed with migraines, or if pain medication isn’t working, consider coming in to see Dr. Richard Kernagis and Dr. Jennifer Wynn Kernagis, Tampa’s go-to dentists for TMJ/TMD. They can give you the information about the TMD treatment you need to make the right decision about how to treat your pain and headaches.

TMD can cause headaches in Tampa.

What is the Best Treatment?

We want to partner with you to get rid of your pain now and make sure that it is gone for good. Our first order of business is to provide TMJ treatment and get rid of the pain you’re in now. We do this by making a splint that moves your jaw away from the blood vessels and nerves that are causing you pain. Once the pain is relieved, your joint and muscles can work together easily. Our dentists for TMJ will analyze your jaw’s positioning, then analyze how your teeth fit together (occlusion), which will make sure your teeth will not push your jaw out of place as you continue use your mouth.

Painful Headaches? TMD Treatment Makes a Difference!

Having a mouth and jaw that works properly and is pain free doesn’t have to be impossible. TMD and the accompanying headaches can be treated so you may never experience that pain again. Modern pain free dentistry can address TMJ issues provide TMJ treatment, and help get rid of the pain once and for all!
