Headaches and TMJ

Serving Patients in Oklahoma City, Edmond, Lawton, and Norman, OK

Everyone has a tendency to hold their stress in different areas of the body. Some people hold it in their shoulders, some their back, and others hold it in their jaw. For those people who hold tension in their jaws, this tension can, over time, result in grinding teeth in sleep, clenching when feeling stress and can then lead to misaligned teeth. Overtime, this tension can travel to your temples and the rest of your head and neck resulting in painful headaches that many people believe are migraines.
