Suffering from Headaches?

Do you suffer from headaches?  Are they daily?  How about Migranes?

Sometimes, headaches are a result of your teeth not fitting together properly.  When the teeth don’t interdigitate exactly right it puts stress and strain on the TMJ and therefore affects the muscles in your head.

These are numerous and can be from a variety of different sources including:

  • The Jaw (TMJ) and associated structures
  • The neck muscles, nerves and other structures
  • Dental causes of pain such a tooth infection
  • The nerves that exit the brain and supply the face region (facial and trigeminal nerves)

Face pain can present in a variety of forms such as:

  • Headache
  • Spasm or a feeling of tightening around the face / neck or scalp
  • Ache in the face or neck
  • Tooth ache
  • A feeling of being swollen in the face
