Most people do not associate migraines and chronic tension headaches with jaw alignment issues, but if you are suffering from this kind of pain, temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ, may be the cause. In Summerlin, Dr. Robert Chin and Dr. Jessica Pharar, who both trained in neuromuscular dentistry at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, can help diagnose and create a treatment plan to relieve your pain.
With neuromuscular dentistry, we look at the operation of your jaw as it is connected to surrounding ligaments, tendons, bones, and nerves. Because of the interconnected nature of everything in this region, a misaligned jaw can cause severe headaches, facial pain, and even shoulder pain.
Once identified as the source of your migraines, your jaw misalignment may be corrected with custom mouth guards, braces, or in extreme cases oral surgery. The first step is to visit our office for a thorough examination and individualized treatment plan.
