TMJ is an abbreviation for your temporomandibular joint. It’s the point where your jaw connects to your head, at the base of your temple. TMJ disorders are caused when your upper and lower jaws are misaligned. This strains the surrounding muscles, causing pain and forcing your jaws to remain in their uncomfortable position.
One of the potential side affects of a TMJ disorder is getting migraines. Migraines are severe headaches that can disrupt your everyday routine. Migraine symptoms include:
- Aura or visual disturbances
- Nausea and/or vomiting
- Depression, irritability or excitement
- Light, noise, or smells trigger or worsen pain
- Vertigo, blurred or double vision
If you regularly experience migraines, clench your jaw, grind your teeth, or have aching jaw muscles it is likely that you have a TMJ disorder. And if you’ve felt the pain, you know it’s not something you want to keep feeling.
We at Tooth Acres Dentistry are excited to tell you that we can help relieve your TMJ pain! We prescribe the NTI-tss Plus dental device to our patients who are dealing with migraines and TMJ disorders.
The NTI-tss Plus is the only dental device of its kind cleared by the FDA and proven to treat migraine pain and frequency. It is customized precisely for each patient to relieve them from pressure on the muscles, joints, and nerves.
