Dental Problems May Cause Headaches

JUNE 01, 2004

Diet, stress, and fatigue may not be the only leading causes of headaches. Research has shown that a poorly aligned bite or missing teeth may lead to frequent headaches. Patients and dentists should look for the following signs that the mouth is the culprit behind headaches:

  • Pain behind the eyes
  • Sore jaw muscles
  • Teeth grinding
  • Clicking or popping of jaw joints
  • Earaches or ringing in the ears
  • Dizziness

Experts recommend that patients who have frequent headaches along with these symptoms visit their dentist.
