Headaches and Dental Issues

When you take the time to think about it, we put our brains through a lot on a daily basis. It is responsible for controlling every thought, movement and action that we make throughout the day. If you worked anything else that hard you would definitely see the wear and tear over time. Headaches can sometimes be an indication that you may have to slow down a bit, take some deep and full breaths and relax because your mind is being overworked.

Headaches are also linked to stress, hunger, physical ailments and dental issues. “Do you know that 75 per cent of the unexpected headaches and back aches are due to dental problems? Patients often go to a Neurologist for such problems, but they need to rule out the cause for the pain first by visiting a dentist, says K Mahendranadh Reddy, organising chairman of the 43rd Indian Prosthodontic Society Conference. And the solution for such pains could be had by placing a small piece of plastic between the teeth. The remedy is as simple as that and doesn’t need an MRI or costly diagnostics to identify the problem, he told newspersons today. Often, the root of the problems for migraines, lingering headaches, backaches is in the tooth, Mahendranadh explained. The Indian Prosthodontic Society Chapters of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh are jointly hosting the three day conference to be inaugurated by M Venkaiah Naidu, Union Minister for Urban Development at the HICC on Friday.”

This by no means that any and all headaches that you may incur are related to a dental issue. If you are someone who suffers from severe and consistent headaches, make sure to contact a medical practitioner. When you visit your Ottawa dentist and you are experiencing headaches that you believe may be attributed to a dental issue, bring it to the attention of your Ottawa dentist. They will be able to assess things more thoroughly.
