Headaches can be related to your teeth

Alexander Dental Center May 18, 2021

We all have headaches sometimes. Most of the time we attribute headaches to causes other than our teeth, but headaches can be related to grinding or clenching our teeth at night or even during the day.

Causes of clenching and grinding are:

  • Stress
  • Misalignment of teeth, which causes uneven bite pressure
  • Muscle strain
  • Trauma
  • Weight lifting

A night guard or a day guard appliance can protect your teeth, reduce pressure on your gums and ligaments and eliminate headaches.

Let us help you by identifying or ruling out any dental causes for your headaches.
