Correct Your Posture to Keep Headaches and Jaw Pain Away

If you are suffering from pain in the lower jaw and frequent headaches, it’s time to examine your posture and ask your dentist if you are affected by about temporomandibular disorder (TMD). Many people with poor posture don’t recognize that they are placing their spine in such a position that it’s causes the jaw joint to get stressed. As people hunch over or slouch, the lower jaw moves forward, which in turn makes it difficult for the upper and lower teeth to fit together suitably. Moreover, such poor posture also makes the skull to move back on the spinal column. This movement creates stress on joints, muscles, and bones. If the situation is left untreated, it can give rise to inflammation and pain in muscles as well as joints when the patient opens and closes the mouth.

According to Dr. LaFrom – one of the leading dentists in Cupertino, it’s important to have a good posture. Yet, many people often are unaware of how poor posture can influence their oral health.
