Do You Suffer From Headaches and Muscle Pain?

November 20, 2014

175476619If you are currently suffering from severe pain and discomfort in the head, neck, or jaw you should visit Dr. Gerber immediately to be checked for Bruxism and TMJ Disorder. These related disorders can be extremely painful and significantly reduce your quality of life. Bruxism is an unconscious and involuntary nightly grinding of the teeth. TMJ Disorder is a dysfunction and deterioration of the temporomandibular joint (joint connecting lower jaw to the head) and surrounding muscles. Bruxism can contribute to the development of TMJ Disorder and the two conditions have over-lapping symptoms. The good news is that the headaches and muscle pain associated with these conditions can be treated by Dr. Gerber and his experienced team at Gentle Dental Care.
