Do migraines plague your days? Do painful mouth function, clicking jaw joints, and neck pain interfere with your quality of life? Even earaches, tingling extremities, and back pain can be caused by misaligned jaw joints.
The joints that hold your jaw in place car called temporomandibular joints, or TMJ. When misaligned, the TMJ can cause associated nerves and muscles become irritated. This leads to a host of symptoms, like those listed above. However, Dr. Hale can treat TMJ dysfunction with non-surgical therapy.
He may recommend joint vibration analysis, EMG, splint therapy, or an NTI-tss appliance. In some cases, orthodontics, Invisalign, or building up back teeth can correct the bite. Depending on the cause of your TMJ dysfunction, Botox or Restylane injections may even provide relief!
If you suffer with migraines, headaches, face and neck pain, or other TMJ symptoms, call Smiles by Hale to schedule a consultation with Dr. Hale. He has helped patients from Estero, Bonita Springs, Lehigh Acres, and the Naples area find relief through non-surgical therapy.
