If You Have Frequent Headaches and Pain in Your Lower jaw, Check Your Posture.
People who experience frequent headaches or pain between the earlobe and jawline should consult their dentist about TMD. Poor posture will often place the spine in a position that may cause stress to the jaw joints. When you slouch or hunch over, your lower jaw shifts forward, causing the upper and lower teeth not to fit together correctly. Your skull also moves back to the spinal column, which may cause headaches. Poor posture puts stress on muscles, joints, and bones. Good posture is essential, and it is just as important to realize how posture can affect oral health.
