People who experience frequent headaches or migraines don’t only tend to complain about the headache or migraine pain they’re currently experiencing, they’re also unhappy about their inability to perform their everyday functions due to this pain.
When someone has a pounding headache it’s safe to say that all of their focus is on making the pain go away. Whether you’re someone who has recently been experiencing frequent migraines and headaches or someone who has been looking for a migraine cure for many years now, it’s important to find a solution as soon as possible.
Many people don’t realize that the cause of both migraines and headaches could actually be stemming from a problem with your jaw joint, which means that seeking out a dental solution could be your best chance for finding a cure so you don’t have to experience this pain anymore.
Here’s what you don’t know…
Migraines and jaw pain go hand in hand. Jaw pain can usually be attributed to a misaligned bite, which not only affects the jaw area but all of the surrounding jaw joints and jaw muscles, as well.
When the jaw joint isn’t in its ideal position additional stress and pressure is put on all of the joints, muscles and nerves, which can easily lead to your having a headache and even a migraine. Also, the fact that a TMJ disorder can also cause TMJ headaches or TMJ migraines makes it important to seek out a dental solution.
The trigeminal nerve is a major nerve that’s located in your face, and when this nerve is disrupted due to a misaligned bite it can easily create tension in your head that can lead to the headaches and migraines that can get in the way of your being able to live your everyday life to the fullest. Fortunately the trigeminal nerve can often be nullified by realigning the jaw back into its optimal position.
Dental treatments: it’s time to try something new for your headaches
Because realigning a misaligned jaw is going to help relieve any headache or migraine pain you may be currently experiencing, seeking out the best dental treatments first is highly suggested.
There are currently a variety of helpful dental treatments available, including the use of orthotics as well as a full mouth reconstruction.
An orthotic is a dental device that is to be worn with a purpose of correcting a misaligned jaw, which works for the majority of people.
If more work is needed than an orthotic can offer then a full mouth reconstruction may be necessary, which actually alters and transforms the teeth in order to help realign the jaw. Once the teeth are able to properly mesh together the bite will be realigned, which is going to take that additional pressure off the jaw joints and muscles.
