How To Deal With Sore And Porous Teeth?
good afternoon. I want to ask, my left tooth is often sick, it is because the teeth have become porous and perforated. Well besides that I also often migraine because of the impact of these teeth. this time I was in pain at the bottom of the ear, right on the neck, maybe because of the massage, but if I open my mouth a bit wide, it hurts like cramps, but my teeth don’t hurt, why? explanation please
The teeth and jaw regions have the same innervation originating from the face and head. So that often abnormalities in the teeth and other parts of the mouth cause pain that radiates to the head. Some problems in the teeth that can trigger headaches (including migraines) are:
Malocclusion. As a result, the maxillary and mandibular teeth do not close properly. Could be due to missing teeth, irregular tooth position, and how to chew food that is not good (only one side). This will cause the muscles on one side of the face to contract more and work harder so that sometimes it causes pain or cramps on one side of the face that can spread to the head.
Dental caries or perforated teeth. In the condition of cavities to the pulp, sometimes pain is not only localized to the teeth, but can spread to the ears, face, to headaches. Abnormalities in teeth are usually followed by complaints that are sensitive to cold drinks, sweet and sour foods.
Temporomandibular joint dysfunction. Joints between side bones of the head and lower jaw, work in the process of opening and closing the mouth which is useful when talking, chewing, swallowing, yawning, and so on. In certain conditions such as yawning too much, chewing too often, aging, these joints can become inflamed and irritated. Complaints can be in the form of pain around the cheeks, especially when opening the mouth, clicking when opening the mouth, headaches, etc.
It is better if you go to the dentist for treatment to deal with problems with your teeth. If your headaches disappear or decrease, then the likely cause of your headaches is the toothache.
Always keep your teeth clean by brushing your teeth at least 2 times a day. Improve the condition of irregular teeth with the use of stirrup or retainer. Check your teeth at least once every 6 months.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
