Treatments for TMJ and Vertigo
People who often experience vertigo as a result of their TMJ should avoid driving and other activities where dizziness puts themselves or others in danger. See a dentist or a physician for advice on treatments that alleviate the symptoms of TMJ, like dental splints, massage, anti-inflammatory medications and relaxation techniques.
TMJ often resolves by itself without treatment, but your dentist can also help you alleviate the pain and manage the difficulties of the condition. If opening your mouth wide enough to brush and floss your teeth is difficult or painful, rinse daily with Colgate Total Advanced Pro-Shield mouthwash, which kills 99 percent of germs on contact, freshens breath and helps prevent gingivitis.
Vertigo isn't a common complication, but in some cases, it could be related to your TMJ. Remember to tell your dentist or physician all your symptoms so that they can help find the best solution to your problem.
