Living with different types of head and neck pain is never pleasant. At PacificWest Dental Group, we provide treatment options to reduce the symptoms of tension headaches, migraine headaches, tinnitus, vertigo, dizziness, jaw pain, and TMJ disorder. 

Grinding and clenching your teeth at night can increase the tension within your jaw and facial muscles. Pain can continue through the day due to the formation of tight muscle tissue trigger points. Additionally, jaw points can feel tender when pressed. If you are experiencing these symptoms, book an appointment at one of our Metro Vancouver offices to relieve your head and neck pain.

What Causes Head and Neck Pain?

The first step in treatment is understanding the origin of your symptoms. Head and neck pain can be caused by a multitude of factors, including:

  • Tooth Misalignment
  • Missing Teeth 
  • Uneven or Worn Teeth
  • Clenching or Grinding Habits
  • TMJ Disorder
  • Arthritis 

Your upper and lower teeth work together as a team. When teeth are missing and misaligned, your bite can become unbalanced, which strains the jaw. The result is irritated joints and inflammation. Clenching and grinding can occur when the jaw tries to return the teeth to their proper positions. TMJ disorder can cause head and neck pain. That’s because inflammation from terpro-madibular joint can spread along nerves, muscles or blood vessels close to the head and neck areas.  In more severe cases, the jaw can become so inflamed that it can be painful to close the mouth.

How Do the Dentists at PacificWest Dental Group Treat Head and Neck Pain?

Many types of head and neck pain are treatable. At PacificWest Dental Group, our team will provide you with a customized treatment plan. Here are the services available at our offices:

  • TMJ/TMD Treatment: Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ/TMD) is one of the leading causes of head and neck pain. Our team provides various treatment options, including custom-made oral appliances, physical therapy, and suggested lifestyle changes to relieve symptoms and improve jaw function.
  • Bite Alignment Correction: Misaligned bites can lead to head and neck pain. We can assess your bite alignment and recommend treatments such as orthodontics, dental restorations, or bite splints to correct alignment and relieve symptoms of discomfort. 
  • Neuromuscular Dentistry: We can treat head and neck pain using neuromuscular dentistry principles. By evaluating the relationship between your teeth, jaw joints, and muscles, we can identify your symptoms’ issues and root causes. Treatment options include orthodontic appliances and other therapeutic approaches to optimize your bite.

  • Comprehensive Dental Care: As a full-service dental practice, we can address underlying dental issues contributing to your head and neck pain. Routine cleanings, dental fillings and complex restorative procedures support your oral health and overall well-being.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my head and neck pain is related to dental issues?

TMD or bite misalignment can contribute to head and neck pain. If you are experiencing jaw pain, headaches, facial pain, or difficulty opening and closing your mouth, consult the professionals at PacificWest Dental Group. We can determine if your symptoms are dental-related and recommend appropriate treatment options.

Who is most likely to experience head and neck pain?

Almost anyone can experience head and neck pain. Tension headaches are among the most common causes of head and neck pain. They are caused by muscle tension in the head, neck, and shoulders. This type of headache causes dull, constant pain lasting for hours or even days.

Can misaligned bites cause head and neck pain?

Yes. When the upper and lower teeth do not come together properly, it can stress the jaw joints and muscles, resulting in discomfort. Our team can evaluate your bite alignment and recommend treatments, such as orthodontics, dental restorations, or bite sprints, to correct alignment and relieve pain.

Is PacificWest equipped to handle other dental issues besides head and neck pain?

Of course! PacificWest Dental Group is a full-service dental practice. Our experienced team provides comprehensive dental care, including routine cleanings, dental fillings, root canal therapy, dental implants, and cosmetic services. We support your oral health and help you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile.
