TMJ and Headaches
Many physicians and patients don‚’t link dental problems or TMJ disorders with headaches. Headaches caused by dental problems often result from malocclusion or unbalanced bite. The headaches may result from teeth clenching or teeth grinding, which often occurs during sleep, causing the headache or migraine to occur in the morning.
