The origin of TMJ, migraines, and neck pain

The trigeminal nerve is the source of TMJ and migrainesThe chewing system consists of the teeth, the tongue, and the muscles of the neck and jaw. As we age, our teeth, mouth, and muscles accumulate stress and micro-traumas from things such as sports injuries, orthodontics, car wrecks, poor posture, teeth clenching, teeth grinding, or poor chewing habits. These stresses can lead to an imbalance or breakdown in any member of the chewing system.

The main nerve center to which the chewing system reports is called the trigeminal nerve center, which also happens to be the same nerve center that generates migraines, headaches, and pain in the face and neck. Because of this shared nerve center, imbalances in any member of the chewing system can trigger an alert in the trigeminal nerve center and generate migraines, TMJ, headaches, and pain in the neck or back.

Nothing else has been working

Many people that experience TMJ or chronic migraines are desperate for a way to reduce their pain. They have tried everything from massage, acupuncture, painkillers, countless visits to other doctors, and even surgery. If you’ve tried these options and are still in pain, or don’t want to go through the long-term damage that some of these options propose, there is a drug-free, non-surgical way to reduce or eliminate your pain: TruDenta.

TruDenta: Restoring balance and reducing pain!

In order to restore balance to the chewing system, the muscles of the neck and jaw need to be relaxed so that the teeth can be adjusted back to a healthy position. Our office is certified in the revolutionary TruDenta system to completely restore balance to the chewing system and alleviate pain. Patients that suffer from TMJ or migraines typically undergo four to twelve weeks of in-office muscle therapy and bite adjustments to reset and re-balance the chewing system. Once the chewing system is back in balance, many patients who experience chronic TMJ or chronic migraines report that their pain is completely eliminated!
