Did You Know TMJ Disorder Can Cause Migraines?

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects the skull to the lower jaw and is used for chewing and talking. A dysfunction of this joint can result in migraines.

Key takeaways:

– 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.
