Dental Headaches

Many patients have come to Muirhead Dental having suffered from headaches for years, often having explored every possible avenue in an attempt to solve the problem.

Dental Headaches - Stop the suffering

When you have a headache you wouldn't perhaps think that it could be related to your teeth. Headaches are commonly due to a problem with your bite which puts unwanted stress on surrounding muscles. This can simply be remedied by a visit to the dentist for treatment.

Curing patients of their long term headaches is an extremely rewarding experience for us.

Symptoms that you may experience:

  • Headaches
  • Jaw pain and tenderness
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Sinus problems
  • Teeth grinding and clenching

Often the problem can be very simply cured but sometimes we may provide you with a specially designed plastic splint which is worn on your teeth normally over night.

In some cases restorative work is required, such as crowns or fillings for example, to re-establish a new bite.
