TMJ Headaches

Serving Patients in Oklahoma City, Edmond, Lawton, and Norman, OK

Chronic headaches can have many causes, but some are more commonly overlooked than others. If you have tried medications and other treatments only to find they don’t work, it may be time to consider a neuromuscular dental evaluation to determine if TMD is at the root of your pain.

TMD is a condition caused by misalignment of the jaw. Chronic headaches are one of the primary symptoms of this common disorder. Unfortunately, unless TMD is detected by an experienced neuromuscular dentist, this source of discomfort may remain overlooked for years.
Oklahoma City dentist Dr. Terry Bass utilizes advanced technology to diagnose and treat TMD. If you suffer from frequent, debilitating headaches, Dr. Bass can evaluate the alignment of your jaw to determine if TMD is the cause and design a treatment plan that addresses both immediate and future pain.

Headache treatments offered at our Oklahoma City office include:

  • Customized mouthguards
  • Restorative dentistry
  • Orthodontics

Medications and TENS therapy may also be used for immediate relief, but the main goal of TMD treatment is restoring alignment to help guard against future headaches.

If you live in or around Oklahoma City and are dealing with chronic headaches, please contact Terry Bass, DDS today to schedule a neuromuscular evaluation
