Headache Caused By Tooth Loss
Missing teeth, among many other consequeces, can also result in chronic headaches. When teeth are missing, the opposing teeth, having no contacts, can overerupt and cause tissue damage to the gums in the edentulous area. Missing teeth also causes traumatic contact on the teeth while eating, and even when just opening the mouth. This, in turn, can cause the jaw joint - the Temporo Mandibular Joint (TMJ)- to become stressed, often causing headaches.
If you are missing one or more teeth and experience persistent headaches, you might be suffering from the TMJ disorder. Replacing the Missing teeth with Dental Implant will rehabilitate your oral status and relieve the problem of headache associated with missing teeth.
