Do you suffer from frequent headaches or migraines? Do they come in sharp, stabbing pains? Or dull throbbing? Well, you are certainly not alone. Unfortunately, millions of people suffer from this often debilitating condition. These headaches can crop up here and there throughout the year, or they can come daily. Sometimes the pain seems tolerable, but for many, the pain can be unbearable and even interfere with your daily function.
What causes these kinds of recurring headaches? The causes can vary, but they often include sinusitis, migraines, cluster headaches, or tension headaches. You can feel the pain anywhere in your head. This may include the back of the head, the frontal area, the side of the head, pain in the upper or lower jaw, pain in the eyes, and even the entire head.
Fortunately, headaches can be treated but first you need to know what is causing the pain. Medications can help, but they don’t address the root of the problem which means they are usually only temporary fixes. At Renaissance Dental in Owasso, Oklahoma, we have found that many, many people experience relief from headaches when their jaws and teeth are in proper shape and function.
As you know, when you chew your jaws, teeth and muscles perform their role by working together. To allow them to work smoothly, they need to be in harmony. Otherwise, the muscles tire and this fatigue can lead to headaches. If your headaches are being caused by the disharmony of the chewing system, Dr. Sanchez and our team can help! Our goal is to provide you with long-term relief by addressing the root of the issue, not just the symptoms.
If you are tired of recurring headaches and want to find out if the cause is due to problems with the jaw, teeth and muscles, we invite you to call Renaissance Dental in Owasso, Oklahoma at 918-272-0707 to explore your treatment options. Dr. Michael Sanchez, DDS, and our team are here to help you smile again!
