Migraines and Oral Health Are Often Connected

Posted on 12/30/2016 by Dr. Janice Pliszczak
A woman suffering from a severe headache.
Do you suffer from migraines? They can be completely debilitating and are just plain miserable. If you suffer from them, you may want to go in and see your dentist.

Your teeth, their roots, and your jaw in general can all impact your headaches, and can even be the cause of your migraines. Instead of suffering on your own, see who can help you rid your life of migraines, once and for all.

How Your Oral Health Can Impact Your Head

When you have an issue in your mouth, you often hold your mouth differently. You may tip your entire head to try and find some relief from the pain. This can cause a headache on its own. However, if you are clenching your teeth to try and offset the pain, this can directly cause a migraine.

The tension in your jaw muscles can directly affect your head, and they can lead to a more extreme tension headache than usual. This can become a migraine and can lead you to struggle to function normally. If you go in and see your dentist for relief, they may suggest things like fillings, root canals, or even extractions to give you relief from both your mouth pain and your head pain.

Typically, when you suffer from a migraine, you go and see your doctor. However, when you notice headache pain that coincides with tooth or mouth pain, you should go in and see your dentist. Call your dentist and explain what is going on. They can then get you seen and you can decide, along with your dentist, the best form of treatment to go with to help.

You do not have to suffer from migraines without relief. There is help out there. Contact our office today!
