Getting Care for TMJ Migraines

If you suffer from chronic migraines, your dentist may have the treatment you’ve been searching for. Many people who have migraines actually suffer from temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ. TMJ occurs when the joint that attaches your lower jaw to your skull becomes inflamed, and it can cause widespread symptoms, including migraines.

If you have chronic migraines or experience painful jaw movements, face or neck pain, numbness in your arms or fingers, or difficulty opening and closing your mouth, you may be experiencing TMJ. Talk to your dentist about TMJ therapy—with the use of an oral appliance that restores healthy alignment to your jaw, you can get the relief you need without surgery or medications.

If you have migraines, make an appointment with Dr. Michael J. Wei in Manhattan to see if TMJ disorder could be to blame. To schedule an appointment at our dentist’s office, please call (212) 982-4080.
