TMJ Disorder and Migraine Headache Treatment

Migraine headaches can be debilitating and can interfere with your life, causing you to miss work and miss out on life around you. You may suffer from migraine headaches and sometimes feel medications offer little to no relief. Many FDA-approved medications and devices claim to relieve migraine symptoms, yet you are still left with the source of the pain and reoccurring migraine headaches. You may not know this, but an LVI certified dentist could help relieve or even eliminate your debilitating migraine headaches.

Alternative Treatments for TMD and Migraine Headaches in Miami and Coral Gables.

Doctors Raul Garcia and Conchi Sanchez-Garcia are certified LVI Fellows and specialize in treatment for migraine headache relief. Using a unique device, designed to wear in your mouth while you sleep, the device will slightly reposition your mandible or lower jaw to help relieve tension and stress in the muscles. The removable dental device allows your jaw to achieve physiological alignment and, therefore, maintains relaxed jaw muscles. The device can be adjusted to fit your needs. Adjustments may be made over a period of time for maximum efficiency and results. Ultimately, this technique relaxes muscles in your jaw, neck, and head which quiet down the nerves in the area to help reduce or eliminates your migraine headaches.

So what do jaw muscles have to do with a migraine? The head contains many nerves that interconnect through the face, jaw and its muscles to interact with your brainstem. A major cranial nerve, the trigeminal, extends through the jaw, face, front and back of the head. A migraine can affect an area of the head where the trigeminal nerve passes through as it passes through muscles that are tight and in spasm. Relaxing the jaw muscles and with a positioning device will help relieve stress and tension on the trigeminal nerve, ultimately reducing your migraine symptoms. The device should be comfortable to wear, and your relief should be almost instant. Why not try a more natural, holistic approach to relieving or eliminating your migraine symptoms and stop letting migraines and pain medications control your life.
