Many headaches can occur from muscle tension and these tension headaches can be linked to your bite. If you are suffering from sensitive or sore jaw muscles, bruxism (teeth grinding), clicking or popping of the jaw joints (TMJ – Temporomandibular Joint) or severe pain from your head or scalp when it’s touched, your jaw joint may be the one to blame. If your family doctor suspects this, please contact us for a free consultation where we will examine the situation. If you are grinding your teeth a nightguard can be worn to protect your teeth. A nightguard is an acrylic removable appliance, which aids in minimizing the effects of grinding, clenching your teeth and will help with your jaw joint problems.
