How Often Do You Wake With a Headache?

August 4, 2014

We go to bed at the end of an exhausting day hoping we will wake up the following morning feeling refreshed! Unfortunately, that doesn’t happen for everyone. Some people go to bed and wake up with a headache just about every morning. This is a classic sign that you have an issue with your temporomandibular joint (TMJ). We call this TMJ disorder, and you are the best person to discover that there is a problem!

Patients with TMJ disorder often feel headaches, but they might also notice an ache in their ear or neck. Often they will hear clicking and popping when they chew, as well as feel pain while they chew. Many things can cause TMJ disorders, but we often see it associated with bruxism, injury, or dental equipment that is no longer functioning correctly. Our first task is to find out what is causing the TMJ disorder so that we can provide care that will address the issue.

Correcting TMJ Disorders

We will try to find out what is causing your TMJ disorder. We often find that massage or oral exercises can help your TMJ disorder. Heat or cold packs can help ease pain and relax your jaw, as well. In the case of malocclusion, however, orthodontics are necessary to correct your bite and give your jaw some peace!

Don’t allow yourself to wake up with a headache every morning. Get help for the pain you are feeling! We can help you address the real issue at hand and get the results you need! Contact us today to set up an appointment, and let us know what you are noticing in your mouth!
