We see then that dental headache
s originate from an unstable bite, which cause the muscles of the jaw, head, and neck
to overwork and
become painful. Once the muscles become painful, a vicious cycle begins. The pain
makes you fell tense and uptight. This worsens the muscle spasm, which in turn increases the pain.
Neuromuscular dentistry is nothing new. Actually, it has been around for some 30 years, but is not the traditional approach to patient care in dentistry.
