Headache & Facial Pains

Headaches and facial pain are often related to problems originating in or involving the teeth, jaws, and the joints of the jaw (called temporo-mandibular joints). This condition is often referred to as Temporo-Mandibular Disorders (TMD), or Myo-Facial Pain Disorder Syndrome (MPDS).

TMD presents with numerous signs and symptoms, which can include the following:

  • Facial pain
  • Jaw joint (TMJ) pain
  • Back and neck pain
  • Postural problems
  • Pain in the joints or face when opening or closing the mouth, yawning, or chewing
  • Tension headaches
  • Pain in the muscles surrounding the temporo-mandibular joints and in front of the ears
  • Pain behind the eyes
  • A bite that feels uncomfortable, or as if it is continually changing
  • Clenching or grinding of the teeth, at night or during the day
  • Tender sensitive teeth
  • A limited opening capability or inability to open the mouth comfortably
  • Deviation of the jaw to one side
  • The jaw locking open or closed
  • Ringing in the ears and ear pain

The treatment of TMD usually involves a combination of dental treatment, physiotherapy, drug therapy, and exercises to relax the muscles. Some successes have also been reported with hypnosis.
