Can Migraine Headaches Cause my Upper Row of Teeth to Hurt?

Traditionally, migraine headaches are localized to on one side of the head, but their pain can spread throughout the entire face. However, if you are experiencing tooth pain along with your headache, it is likely that you are suffering from TMJ, an issue impacting the alignment of your jaw.

If you suffer from chronic headaches in Pittsburgh, please contact Dentonics, Inc. or call 412-487-6910 today to schedule a neuromuscular evaluation.

TMJ and Headaches       

TMJ is often accompanied by chronic headaches, generalized facial pain, and tooth pain. Other TMJ symptoms may include:

  • Clicking, popping, or grinding noises in the jaw
  • Limited jaw mobility
  • Jaw pain and/or swelling
  • Neck and back pain

If you are suffering from any of these issues in addition to headache and tooth pain, we can provide you with a neuromuscular dentistry evaluation to determine if TMJ is present.

It is important to remember that chronic headaches and tooth pain may both be indications of a larger problem and should not be ignored. During your neuromuscular evaluation we will check for other causes of headache and tooth pain as well to ensure you receive the most effective treatment possible.
