Have you been wondering why you keep experiencing headaches? Perhaps a friend mentioned that she used to suffer from chronic headaches but has achieved relief through dental care. Your friend just might have offered you the advice you need! Learn more from your Riverside dentist regarding how your oral health may affect your need for headache relief.

Bruxism Disorder

It’s common to experience headaches as the result of bruxism (which is a disorder that includes involuntary clenching or grinding of your teeth). When you avoid visits with your Riverside dentist, you may overlook this disorder because you perform it without realizing it. We encourage you to schedule six-month preventive visits with us, so we can identify such issues, while keeping you and your oral health comfortable and well.

TMJ Disorder

Related to bruxism is a problem called TMJ disorder (temporomandibular joint disorder). As the result of a variety of potential causes, this occurs when your jaw joints aren’t working as they should. Strain and functional problems may contribute to headaches.

Misaligned Teeth

If your headaches are caused by bruxism or TMJ disorder, it’s important to realize that these issues are often the result of misaligned teeth. This is a reason it’s very important to visit your Riverside dentist! In addition to figuring out the cause of your discomfort, we may discover multiple issues that require treatment. Fortunately, just one checkup with us can reveal such factors, so we can create a comprehensive care plan to lead you toward the headache relief you’re seeking.
