Frequent Headaches Pennington NJ

Headache? Pain in the neck? If you’ve just been “dealing with the pain”, it’s time to do something about it.

A simple evaluation can help us determine if your frequent headaches and facial pain are caused by Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction or malocclusion (unbalanced bite). Dr. Donna Vagnozzi-Bucci specializes in treating TMJ dysfunction and helping people get lasting relief from headaches and facial pain.

Are Your Headaches Caused by TMJ Dysfunction?

Headache causes can include stress, anxiety, lack of sleep, and neurological disorders. An often overlooked cause for headaches, however, is dental problems. Headaches are one of the most common symptoms of a TMJ dysfunction. TMJ headaches typically occur in the morning and are the result of tension in the jaw joints, teeth clenching or teeth grinding.

TMJ Headache Symptoms

  • Pain in the temples or back of the head
  • Morning headaches
  • Pain in the shoulders, neck and upper back
  • Migraine headaches
  • Teeth grinding, teeth clenching

TMJ Headache Therapy

Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci & Associates will evaluate your jaw joints and perform a bite analysis to determine if your headaches are caused by TMJ dysfunction. After diagnosing your condition, she will create a personalized treatment plan.

Treatment for TMJ headaches can range from simple oral appliance therapy, using a night guard or splint, to advanced bite correction therapy, which involves reshaping the teeth so that they make proper contact.

  • You have been such a great support in the care for our mother over these years. I wanted to keep her pain free and you helped us with that. The last miraculous feat was the saving of that front tooth that broke. It made me smile because she hated that her teeth were discolored. She would have LOVED that shiny white tooth!! Thank you for that and, for contributing to alzheimer's research in her name.

  • I didn’t go to the dentist for a while because I had bad experiences. Then a friend referred me to the Spa Dentistry office. I usually see Dr. Silk. I have a lot of confidence in him and am very comfortable with everyone in the office now. The office is beautiful and comfortable. Everyone is friendly and professional and always makes you feel comfortable. I had two bridges done that have worked out great! I highly recommend the dental group to anyone because they are very personable and always make me feel comfortable.

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Vagnozzi Bucci Spa Dental Practice since April 2002 and I’m extremely happy. I have dental insurance that I cannot use at the office however, I still choose to go there. The whole staff is superior in their technical abilities, attitude and professionalism. Every procedure I have had done there has exceeded my expectations. Painless dentistry at its finest. I can not use enough adjectives to describe and praise these doctors and professional staff. It’s not the dentistry you remember from your childhood; this is the dental practice of the future.

  • I just wanted to thank all of you for taking such good care of my aunt while she and my uncle were in the states from Australia. They were thrilled with her new teeth and told us you were amazing! I know medical/dental care is no where near as good in the U.K. or Australia as it is here, so I am glad if she had to have treatment, it was done by you. Thanks you again; I owe you one, but hope you don’t need any physical therapy anytime soon...
