Many people around the world suffer from migraines. In one study, it shows that nearly 40 million Americans dealt with migraines or chronic tension headaches. It also shows that poor oral health can also be a leading contributing cause linked to migraines. If you suffer from unexplainable headaches, you may want to question your dentist for them to diagnose your symptoms. Those that experience crucial headaches may consider these potential factors that may trigger them:

  • Bright, flashing lights
  • Loud noises
  • Alcoholic consumption
  • High caffeine intake
  • Changes in sleeping patterns
  • Hormonal changes
  • Over-processed food
  • Change in diet
  • Stress

Substantial research shows that dental issues such as Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ), teeth grinding, and wisdom teeth are the primary cause that is often time muscle strain between the jaw and mouth. Taking care of your oral health is essential for your overall health.
