Headaches And Migraines

Dealing with headaches and migraines can be a challenging experience, impacting your overall well-being. In addition to discussing your concerns with your family doctor, it’s essential to have a conversation with your family dentist at Herriott Street Dental or our dental clinic in Perth to explore potential dental-related causes and solutions.


Tension Headaches

Tension headaches can sometimes result from muscle strain in the jaw, which can occur due to misaligned teeth, forcing the jaw muscles to work overtime. Bruxism, the habit of grinding teeth at night, can also lead to waking up with a headache. The use of a night mouthguard can be beneficial in such cases. Other habits like nail-biting, chewing on pencils, or excessive gum chewing can contribute to tension headaches.

TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) Issues

TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) issues are a significant cause of headaches, affecting the joints, muscles, and nerves in the face around the mouth. While some TMJ-related headaches may dissipate, others may require intervention. It’s important to note that sinus problems, toothaches, and even cavities can sometimes mimic TMJ symptoms, making it essential to have a dental professional evaluate your condition.
