Relief for Patients with TMJ in San Marcos
Do you have a painful, aching jaw? Do you wake up with headaches? Over 10 million Americans suffer from chronic headaches and facial pain, symptoms of TMJ disorder . As a neuromuscular dentist with LVI training, Dr. Donnelly specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of TMJ disorder. He may be able to alleviate your debilitating pain with simple therapies.
Headache and Migraine Relief
If you have chronic headaches or migraines you may be clenching or grinding your teeth at night, or even during the day. The constant tension and pressure causes harm to teeth, surrounding tissues, and joints. Teeth grinding and facial and jaw pain are common symptoms of TMJ disorder, a condition that Dr. Donnelly can remedy with a custom-fitted nightguard. By reducing clenching, you are in fact eliminating the source of the pain, which will result in headache and migraine relief.
Temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are the small, triangular joints in front of your ears that allow for comfortable chewing and speaking. These joints are highly sensitive and can be thrown out of alignment by stress, tension, and changes in eating habits. Other causes of TMJ disorder include misaligned teeth, genetics, and auto-immune disease. Dr. Donnelly alleviates TMJ-related pain by finding your jaw's natural resting position and designing a custom mouthguard that holds your jaw in place. He does this with the NTI/TSS System.
With NTI (Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition Device) and TSS (Tension Suppression System), Dr. Donnelly prevents medically diagnosed migraine pain, tension-type headaches, and TMJ disorder without drugs or surgery. Benefits of NTI/TSS include:
