How could you jaw cause a migraine headache?
When your jaw joint is misaligned, migraines can develop. TMJ disorders can occur due to poor occlusion or malocclusion in your mouth. Occlusion is the meeting of your maxillary (upper jaw) and mandibular (lower jaw) either at rest or while chewing. If movement is misaligned between the maxillary and mandibular joints during the process of chewing, or talking, the pain can be excruciating. This discomfort can radiate to your head if it affects the nerves within this joint. The primary nerve is the trigeminal, which carries pain stimuli from your head, face, mouth, teeth, ears and neck to the central nervous system. The trigeminal nerves control and regulate the flow of blood through the arteries in your brain. When this blood flow is interrupted from a dental issue or misalignment of your jaw a migraine headache is often the result. Migraine sufferers know that the pain this causes is debilitating and can also move into your neck, spine and sometimes travels down to your appendages.
