How To Deal with Headaches? The connection with BRUXISM, jaw and neck problems

If you get up in the morning with neck, head or jaw pain, are clenching or grinding your teeth involuntarily and are going through a stressful time, you may have bruxism and don’t know it.

30% of headaches have their origin in a combination of stress and an imbalance in the adjustment of the teeth or malocclusion.

Bruxism (from the Greek βρύκειν (/brükein/): ‘grinding [your teeth]’) is the involuntary habit of clenching or grinding tooth structures for no functional purpose.

It affects between 10% and 20% of the world’s population and cases rise to 30% due to stress. The problem of grinding or clenching teeth is growing, particularly among pre-teens.
