Headache Symptoms and Causes
Headache pain, migraine pain, TMJ pain, tinnitus, vertigo, and other head-pain symptoms may result from force imbalances in the dental foundation that affect blood vessels, muscles, and nerves in the head, face, and neck areas.
Remember that there are NO pain fibers in the brain, so there is no pain in the brain (inside the head). It only feels like it.
Clenching and grinding of the teeth
Dental wear and tooth breakage
Clicking and popping of the jaw joint
Discomfort in the neck or jaw muscles
Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
Types of Headache Pain
Tension headaches result from tightening of the head, neck, and facial muscles.
Inflammatory headaches are due to inflammation which causes swelling in the blood vessels which causes pain.
Traction headaches occur when pain-sensitive parts of the head, neck, or face are pulled, stretched, or displaced from whiplash, orthodontics, falling down skiing, sports injuries like headers in soccer, head position on the job like typing at a computer, or even eye-strain.
Vascular headache pain, also known as a migraine or cluster headache, causes severe pain, sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, dizziness, and vision impairment.
Causes of Head Pain
Our system targets the unbalanced muscle forces in the head, neck, and jaw areas that cause head pain and other painful conditions in the face, jaw, and neck areas. These conditions may be caused by several factors, includingthe following:
Head, Neck, or Body Trauma Sports injuries, accidents, or a simple bump on the head could affect the force balances within your mouth. These incidents could have happened yesterday or many years ago. The trauma could potentially stretch or tear ligaments causing dental imbalances and head pain.
Dental Treatments Aged and worn fillings and crowns, poor adaptation to dentures, trauma during tooth extraction (especially wisdom teeth), prolonged opening during appointments, use of a bite block during treatment, and other dental treatments can also be the cause headache symptoms.
Lifestyle Increased stress, lack of exercise, and poor diet can result in many headache pain symptoms. Poor posture due to excessive sitting may also lead to headaches.
Age and Wear As the body ages, so does your bite. Since teeth and the components of dental restorations (both metal and composite) age at different rates, changes in your bite over time can cause improper teeth alignment and cause an imbalance in the forces in the bite.
