What Can Cause a Tension Headache?
Most dental headaches are grouped as tension headaches. These are usually a result of the tension that builds up in the part of the face and jaw. More often, this tension that you feel is a symptom of a “bad bite”. But what can cause a bad bite? All kinds of things can cause a bad bite, including a previous dentistry or an incoming wisdom tooth. Sometimes, it can also be caused by cavities, tooth infection or an abscess.
