What causes my headaches?
Headaches and sore muscles can be a dental-related problem. When we look at the way the teeth, muscles, and jaw joint work, there’s a balance and equilibrium for those three systems. When that equilibrium is out of balance we can over-work those muscles or joints. This can happen when there’s a discrepancy between the bite and the position of the jaw joint.
Clenching and grinding the teeth can further overwork the system. The muscles working the jaws never get a chance to relax and can become sore or can spasm leading to headache like symptoms.
