When you are struggling with symptoms like frustrating headaches, constant migraines, and jaw pain, it is time to come in for a TMJ assessment. Migraine headaches and other TMJ symptoms are often misdiagnosed. Doctors can miss TMJ disorders and say that frequent migraines may be caused by a neurological issue that cannot be narrowed down fully when the disorder could be treated with a proper diagnosis. Many times, it is actually a TMJ disorder that is the source of the migraines, headaches, and pain.
Diagnosing TMJ Disorder Correctly
There are many forms of TMJ disorder, and different forms lead to different TMJ symptoms. It is critical that your dentist is able to diagnose your personal TMJ disorder correctly so that you can be treated efficiently and see improvement as quickly as possible. When you are not diagnosed correctly, your treatment will not match your TMJ disorder exactly and your migraine and pain will take longer to vanish.
Here at Practical Sleep Solutions in Brentwood TN, just outside of Nashville, we utilize the most advanced technology so that we can diagnose your TMJ accurately and precisely. We use computer technology called Mytrotronics to learn more about your specific TMJ disorder. The Mytrotonics system has the ability to measure and analyze the joint noise in the temporomandibular joint. This noise can tell us a lot about what the problem is and how to fix it. Mytrotronics can detect your personal and specific TMJ symptoms. This allows Dr. Poss to know the best way to treat your TMJ disorder effectively. Mytrotronics provides us with the information we need to create your custom-made TMJ treatment appliance so that you can get feeling better fast.
