TMJ & Headaches
Did you know: A “bad bite” can be and often is the cause of your headaches?
There is a strong connection between having headaches (tension and migraines) and having problems with your jaw joints and/or dental bite. How you use or abuse your teeth and jaws (teeth grinding and jaw bracing) has a profound effect not only on the jaw joints but also can cause headaches and face/jaw/neck pain.
Many people endure years of agonizing headaches or jaw problems, using medications and other ineffective methods (which fail to deal with the real problem) – and then realize that they come from having an unstable bite, tired muscles, injured joint, or from a posture problem.
There is a better way…
Dr. Ostler is experienced with and uses modern techniques and TMJ Treatment measures to both diagnose and treat jaw and face pain, bite problems, and painful headaches that accompany them. Often a multi-disciplinary problem, Dr. Ostler knows when and how to utilize other health professional to assure the best outcome possible.
