Severe headaches or migraines may be caused by TMD or temporomandibular joint syndrome. This can stem from a bite problem so our teeth are involved. This is caused by several factors such as jaw clenching,tooth grinding or having an improper bite. Injury to the jaw, extensive chewing and joint dislocation may also contribute to TMD, requiring TMD treatment.
When there is already an inflammation in the jaw because of misalignment, people can experience headaches. Some may look at this as a minor problem but the truth is this may have serious negative consequences to our dental health. One should undergo an immediate and proper TMD treatment to resolve this issue.
Although some headaches or pains would be alleviated by medications it is best to visit a dentist, as this may be a recurring struggle that will need more than medicine to resolve. Medicines are mere temporary solutions to permanent pain or headaches. TMD treatment will actually solve the problem.
