Do you suffer from headaches? Did you know that your headaches could be originating from the way you bite your teeth together. Teeth clenching or grinding at night can cause the muscles that support your jaws to go into spasm very much like any of your muscles if you strain them or over exercise. These spasms can cause pain in the following areas:
Pain around the eyes and forehead
Pain around your temples
Pain in front of your ears and around your jaw joint
Pain at the back of your neck and shoulders
Pain from the teeth including sensitivity
You may have noticed that we routinely screen for tender muscles at your routine dental examination appointments. However, if this sounds like you please let us know, we have a simple method of diagnosing the problem over a two week period and are able to offer you long term solutions in being able to relieve those headaches that are associated with your teeth.
