Dental diseases provoking a headache

Typically, migraines provoke a predisposition, or pressure surges, stuffy air, lack of water or visual fatigue. However, there is another important cause of headache related directly to the health of the dentition.

Headache due to malocclusion

Malocclusion pain
If the bite is broken, the jaw closes tightly and unevenly with each other. As a result, some jaw muscles are relaxed, while others are excessively tense to compensate for this imbalance. Normally, in a person, they strain only when chewing, and not around the clock. With constant hypertonicity, tension is transmitted to the entire jaw, vessels and nerve endings are spasmodic.

Bite can deteriorate not only in early childhood, but also at the very end of adolescence. The lower jaw completes its formation closer to the age of 21, and the articular head may shift. With some configurations of the jaw, night apnea may appear – because of it night hypoxia occurs, and in the morning a person wakes up broken, with an even greater headache than usual. These symptoms also need to be addressed.

The effects of hypoxia

The insidious situation lies in the fact that hypertonicity from the jaw muscles extends further to the cranial muscles and muscles of the cervical-collar zone. In advanced situations, pain occurs with certain movements, numbness, stiffness. The range of motion in the entire neck is reduced, and the source of discomfort is extremely difficult to localize. In this state, larger vessels are also spasmodic, which provide blood flow to the head.

The consequences of malocclusion
Ligaments in the joint of the skull and lower jaw suffer, the second cervical vertebra changes its physiological position. All this leads to the fact that the nerves are pinched – this is the main cause of painful and regular headaches. The temporomandibular joint begins to work incorrectly.

Other accompanying signs of malocclusion include:

teeth grinding at night;
restriction in opening the mouth;
frequent dizziness.
Do not try to suppress these painkillers symptoms if they occur continuously. Neuromuscular dentistry develops every year, orthodontic designs become more light and invisible – wearing braces now does not spoil the appearance of a smile. With strong muscle clamps, light electrical stimulation is used to relieve spasm.
