If you are one of the millions of people across the country that wake up too many mornings suffering from a headache, you may be surprised to hear that your pain may be caused by or related to problems with your teeth, gums, and jaw joints. In fact, it has been discovered that migraine sufferers can often eliminate their pain through proper dental treatment.
The human body is a complex piece of machinery, with each system linked closely to every other system. Disharmony in one part of the body often exhibits itself as pain in another part of the body.
