Headache Treatment in Peachtree, GA
Headaches can distract you from your personal or professional life. We encourage you to schedule an appointment if you have been experiencing frequent tension headaches in your daily life. Here are some frequently asked questions regarding our headache treatment solutions:
What dental concerns commonly result in headaches?
Cavities, missing teeth, or misaligned bite patterns commonly result in tension headaches. Additionally, teeth grinding or a TMJ disorder can present as tension headaches as well. Any dental concern that weakens your teeth and puts added strain on your mouth muscles to perform daily tasks like chewing and speaking can result in headaches.
Why is a properly aligned bite pattern important?
The way that your teeth fit together in their resting position is called your bite pattern. When your bite pattern is misaligned due to crooked or missing teeth, your smile cannot function how it was intended to. Therefore, your teeth and mouth muscles have to work twice as hard as they typically would to perform daily tasks, putting your smile under unnecessary strain.
