– TMJ disorder results in muscle tension that can radiate to the head causing a migraine.
– A disorder can arise due to stress or a misaligned bite which puts strain on the teeth and jaw.
– Treatment for TMJ disorder includes stress management, physical therapy or orthodontics to correct the misaligned bite.
If your doctor has ruled out a medical cause for your migraines, it’s time to visit your dentist.
