Waking Up With Headaches?
Maybe The Dentist Can Help?
Headaches are a big problem for many people.

There are dental causes for headaches too. The type of headache dentists can help with are muscle strain or tension headaches, commonly felt in the morning, possibly with neck and jaw pain. This pain is caused by intense contractions of muscles around your jaws. These muscles even extend way up on both sides of your head ( called the Temporalis muscles). Many people exhibit involuntary clenching and grinding of their teeth at night that can overload these muscles. This is a reflex action - feedback from the teeth causes even more clenching and pain. Traditionally dentists have fabricated a "niteguard" - an appliance that covers all the teeth on the upper or lower arch (similar to a sports mouthguard).
