When you deal with headaches on a consistent basis, the problem can begin to feel overwhelming. Whether you wake up with headaches, experience those that come on throughout the day, or notice that they show up at particular moments, they can get in the way of just about everything! What you might be overlooking is that headaches are often treatable with dental care. Not sure what types of issues with your smile could be causing your discomfort or how dental treatments might help? Consider some very common examples.
It Can Address Your Sleep Apnea Problem
Dental care is here to help if you have a headache, including those caused by sleep apnea. Not sure what this is? Well, if you are someone who snores very loudly and your spouse says you make a choking sound at night, you might have it. It’s a sleep disorder that causes you to stop breathing throughout the night when your soft tissues in your throat collapse. These moments of breathing cessation can lead to morning headaches! Visit us for treatment, so we can protect you.
It Can Balance A Poorly Balanced Bite
When even one part of your bite is poorly balanced, it can lead to headaches. You’ll end up trying to compensate by shifting your teeth and jaws, which strains muscles and ligaments and even your jaw joints. See us regularly, so we can ensure all is well (and that your dental work is in good shape).
It Can Resolve Bruxism/TMJ Issues
We also offer dental care that provides preventive treatment for TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding; teeth clenching). These functional concerns include headaches (and more) as symptoms. Let us treat the problem and your headaches can subside.
