Can a Dentist Treat My Migraines?

If you suffer from frequent migraine headaches, the solution to your problems may be at your Norfolk neuromuscular dentist. Migraines can have many different causes in different patients. For many, however, the culprit is dental malocclusion, the misalignment of teeth in the jaw that creates stress in the Temporomandibular Joint, causing TMJ pain.

Fortunately, Nofolk neuromuscular dentist Dr. Michael P. Folck has a variety of treatments for TMJ/TMD that may be able to help you reduce the intensity and frequency of your migraine headaches. If Dr. Folck determines that the alignment of your jaw is off, one of these treatments to realign it will put less pressure on your jaw muscles, relieving your pain.

Treatments for TMJ-induced headaches include:

·         Restorative dental surgery
·         Repairs of existing dental work
·         Orthodontics
·         Wearing a night guard

Getting your TMJ treated can prevent other long-term dental complications, like arthritis in your jaw joints, teeth that wear down too fast, teeth grinding, orthodontic issues, and even lockjaw. The faster you see a dentist about your migraine headaches, the more likely you are to prevent these complications.

To set up an initial dental consultation with Norfolk dentist Michael P. Folck, contact us at his office by dialing (877) 206-3444. Dr. Folck serves patients in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, and the surrounding communities.
