Frequent Headaches

5 dental problems that can give you a headache?

Muscle Fatigue

If your jaw muscles don’t get enough rest at night because you grind your teeth or have inflammation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), for example, they will get tired.

Pain from Damage

A headache can be your body’s response to an injury or shock in another part of your body. Headaches are often caused by damage to the teeth or jaw.

Grinding Your Teeth

You might not realize it, but if you wake up with a sore jaw or get headaches every day, it could be because you grind your teeth while you sleep.


Temporomandibular joint dysfunction is a broad term for a number of problems with the jaw joint and muscles, such as arthritis, clenching and grinding your teeth, or a broken jaw.

Bite Issues

The upper and lower jaws may not be in the right place for a number of reasons, such as crowded teeth, crossbite, overbite, underbite, and open bite.
