Did you know that were it not for the muscles in your head and face holding it up, your lower jaw would hang against your chest? Knowing that, it’s easier to have a basic understanding of how chewing may affect your head. In fact, if you’re suffering from constant headaches, it may be due to a dental problem.
Let’s say the teeth have worn down due to reasons such as tooth decay or gum disease. Because the teeth have been worn, the muscles responsible for holding the jaws will have to do some extra work in keeping the mouth closed or helping you chew. The fact that they may be strained beyond their resting position may cause strains or even muscle spasms.
A holistic dentist is trained to spot issues like these where your teeth may be the cause or an indicator of something serious happening elsewhere in the body. If you think your constant headaches are being caused by your teeth, schedule an appointment with a dentist.
