Do you suffer from frequent headaches?
Dealing with constant headaches can be uncomfortable for any patient. Experiencing constant headaches, especially in the morning may be a sign of teeth grinding or may mean there is an issue with the temporomandibular joint, also known as TMD. When headaches are paired with jaw pain, tension in the jaw, neck pain, and ear pain, it can be linked to a more complex dental problem.
