If you experience frequent, chronic headaches accompanied by jaw pain, you might benefit from TMD treatment. Your TMJ, temporomandibular joints, are the lower joints that connect your jawbone to your skull. Overuse of these joints can lead to a TMD, or temporomandibular joint disorder.
Some common causes include:
- Teeth Grinding / Bruxism
- Trauma / Whiplash
- Missing teeth
- Dental malocclusion
Temporomandibular joint disorders can often be misdiagnosed by doctors, but your dentist can assess whether your symptoms are TMD related, and prescribe treatment that will alleviate all of your TMD symptoms. A thorough diagnosis from Dr. Ballard will determine the cause of your symptoms, and once we’ve determined the cause, we can create a personal treatment plan.

Instead, we treat TMD with therapies that are designed to retrain and re-calibrate the muscles, soft tissues, and mechanical components of the jaw. These therapies are the same rehabilitation therapies that professional and world class athletes use to reduce muscle pain and other related symptoms.
