LONDON, ON, February 13, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- When a patient has a poorly aligned bite or missing teeth, health related problems can arise. Some of these problems can include headaches or jaw pain, which can become more pronounced with each deformity. Headaches can occur in patients in London because the jaw muscles are working harder to bring the teeth together. Through this, the surrounding jaw muscles are strained. Dr. Brock Rondeau and his experienced dental staff work together to provide proper headache treatment for their London, ON patients.
"Whether a patient has a headache, or a sore jaw, it is important that they seek treatment immediately. The longer you wait, the more your head or jaw will hurt. We have an array of treatments available at our London office for optimal treatment of headaches and jaw pain," said Dr. Brock Rondeau.
With the help of Dr. Rondeau, patients can find relief from their pain, whether they are experiencing jaw pain or headaches in London, ON. To help patients improve their oral health, Dr. Rondeau offers various tips and advice. To begin, patients should be aware of what they eat and how they eat.
While many people are often in a hurry, which causes them to take giant bite of food, just so he or she can move on to the next task, Dr. Rondeau urges patients to not rush-slow down. Patients with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) are at more of a risk for pain because this disorder can restrict the range of an acceptable bite size.
"By taking too large of bites of food, patients can cause aggravation to their condition. My patients should avoid chewing ice, popcorn kernels and opening nuts with their teeth, as this can lead to the chipping and breakage of natural teeth and other dental restorations," said Dr. Rondeau.
Additionally, patients should try to limit their level of stress. The more a patient has on their "to-do" list, the more stress a person is under, which can cause many people to grind or clench their teeth, which can eventually lead to TMD and headaches in London. Stressful situations cause tightened jaw muscles that a patient may not realize. Over short periods of time, this habit might not cause harm, but over long periods of time a patient might experience significant problems.
When a patient experiences jaw pain or headaches, it is important to visit Dr. Brock Rondeau for proper diagnosis and treatment options. Dr. Rondeau will work with each of his patients to ensure there is no serious problem and to offer the best treatment option available.
