TMJ – It’s Enough To Give You A Headache…

One out of every 10 Americans suffers from chronic headaches, and they spend over half a billion dollars every year for over-the-counter medications to relieve their pain. They never imagine that their headaches may be caused by TMJ, and that their pain is the result of a bad bite.

At Access Dental we know a bad bite can put your jaw-to-skull relationship out of alignment.

When this happens, TMJ symptoms occur. This cluster of symptoms can include: headaches, earaches, ear ringing, loud jaw clicking, even stiffness and pain in the jaw, neck, shoulders and back. This cluster has puzzled doctors in the past. Now we can put a name to it: TMJ.

According to recent studies, more than 40 million Americans (including many in the West Atlanta , Douglas County & West Atlanta areas) suffer with TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction) or MPD (Myofascial Pain Dysfunction). The good news is that we at Access Dental are taking the lead in finding solutions.

If you, or someone you love, suffer from the symptoms of TMJ, set up an appointment by calling us at 770 732-9222 soon. You may find that TMJ is the missing piece in the puzzle — and, that the treatment works!
