Chronic, debilitating headaches impact millions of people across the country. If you suffer from headaches, you understand how significantly the pain affects your life. Most likely, you'd do anything to alleviate this condition.
But in order to receive effective headache treatment, you must visit the right medical professional. Many people erroneously seek treatment from their general doctor when the person they should visit is their dentist.
In many instances, headaches are caused by a condition called temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), which occurs when your jaw joint isn't properly aligned. Dr. Frank uses the principles of neuromuscular dentistry to restore your jaw to its ideal resting position. Once your jaw joint is aligned properly, you will most likely experience significant relief from your headaches.
Depending on the exact cause of your jaw misalignment, Dr. Frank may recommend one of the following headache treatments:
- DNA Expansion Orthodontic Therapy
- Full time removable custom neuromuscular orthotic device
- Fixed orthotic device
- Comfort guard that gets worn at night
- Orthodontic and restorative dental treatments
You don't have to live with chronic headache pain any longer. If you live in the Jersey City area, Dr. Frank can help you get the relief you need.
