Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
Many people living in Calgary suffer from migraines. Due to our geographic position , Calgary Chinooks can create severe migraines. Not all frequent and intense headaches are migraines. Constant chronic headaches may actually be caused by your bite. Yes the way your teeth come together can cause intense headaches as part of TMJ Even if you have had braces and have “straight teeth” that does not mean your bite is in harmony with your head and neck muscles.
This discrepancy will give you tension headaches due to fatigue in the muscles. You may have other symptoms that you did not associate with your headaches but are connected such as neck ache, jaw joint sounds, worn teeth,sensitive teeth ,gum recession to name a few .
