If you suffer from frequent or severe headaches, a bottle of over-the-counter pills may be the first thing you turn to. But did you know that qualified dentists diagnose and treat chronic headaches every day? While the connection between your mouth and your head may not be immediately obvious, there are state-of-the-art headache treatments right here in Hoboken that can relieve or eliminate your suffering.
Around 6% of men and 17% of women nationwide suffer from migraine headaches, and many more deal with frequent headaches that might not technically be classified as a migraine but are no less painful or disruptive.
In many cases, headaches can be caused by problems with the temporomandibular joint, or TMJ. TMJ disorder is a problem with the alignment of your jaw. If, in addition to headaches, you also experience jaw pain, facial pain, tooth grinding, or neck pain, there’s good reason to suspect TMJ.
A dentist like Dr. Frank who specializes in neuromuscular therapies can accurately diagnose and treat problems with TMJ, which can lead to fewer, less severe headaches. From medications and night guards to orthodontic treatments, the right solution for you might just be a phone call away.
If frequent or severe headaches are interfering with your quality of life, it’s time to find relief. Please contact the Practice at Maxwell Place today to make an appointment for your headache treatment. Dr. Frank DePaola serves patients in Hoboken, New Jersey.
