Headache Symptoms and Causes

Headache Symptoms and Causes

If you suffer from frequent headaches or migraines, you know how painful they can be. Symptoms can include:

  • Teeth grinding or clenching
  • Tooth wear, erosion, or damage
  • Popping or clicking sounds in your jaw
  • Neck or jaw pain
  • Ear ringing
  • Facial discomfort and pain

Headaches or migraines can be caused by variety of factors, including:

  • An injury to your head, neck or body - this can cause damage to your ligaments in those areas, resulting in imbalances in your mouth, which can lead to head pain. 
  • Prior dental work - old fillings, tooth extractions, and other dental treatments can lead to headaches. 
  • Lifestyle - high stress, poor diet and lack of exercise can increase the chances of headaches. 
  • Age - your bite will change as you age. Your teeth and dental restorations will age at different rates, which can cause bite misalignments.
