Dentistry Science Resolves Headaches.
If you get migraines, one thing’s certain: You want to find a way to stop them. While you feel a migraine in your head, one cause may reside in your mouth and jaw.
You have two temporomandibular joints (TMJs) that connect the sides of your jaw to your skull. They help you open and close your mouth when you talk, eat, and yawn. Pain that starts in those joints or the muscles around them can travel to your skull and lead to a migraine.
