In 2014, the FDA approved a drug-free device to help people who cannot tolerate medications address their migraine pain. This device, very similar to the TENS unit long used by neuromuscular dentists in treating TMD, emits electrical pulses to relax muscles and relieve pain. It also further illustrates the efficacy of TMD treatments utilized by Cedar Rapids neuromuscular dentist Dr. Blain McLaughlin.
If you are struggling with frequent headaches, TMD may be the cause. Please call (855) 620-0260 today to schedule your neuromuscular dentistry consultation and learn if Dr. McLaughlin can help provide you with lasting relief.
Why Treat Headaches Through Dentistry?
Neuromuscular dentistry treatments for headaches address the root of the problem to provide long-term relief. Unlike medications, neuromuscular treatments work to restore alignment in the jaw, relieving pressure on the trigeminal nerve to achieve superior results. Pain medications serve only to mask discomfort. TMD treatments prevent a recurrence of pain by eliminating its cause at the source.
Not all headaches are caused by TMD, but this disorder is often a contributing factor. If you have struggled to find a headache treatment that actually works, please contact Dental Touch Associates today to schedule your neuromuscular dentistry evaluation at our comfortable Marion, Iowa location.
