"I tried everything to get rid of my headaches before I met Dr. Simon!"
Your Headaches are NOT Normal!
You may have just been improperly diagnosed.
The Source of Your Pain May Be an Uneven Bite
Believe it or not, over 75% of ALL head, neck or facial pain (which leads to headaches) is due to overworked head and jaw muscles that are triggered by a bite imbalance. So, YES! It is very much dental related! Most headache specialists agree that muscles are the trigger for most headaches. Unfortunately, the only solution presented to most patients are drugs that temporarily mask the pain and often have undesirable side effects.

8 out of 10 patients who come to us tell us that they have seen so many doctors in hopes to cure their headaches, but have no luck finding a solution. While the doctors are doing their best, they may have just been diagnosing you improperly! Unlike other diseases, there are no medical tests for diagnosing these problems. Doctors have only the patient’s symptoms to make the diagnosis. In fact, headaches are often referred to as Medicine’s Great Imposter because they are so hard to diagnose and treat.
First things first, making a correct diagnosis. Once we have identified and diagnosed the problem you have we can check to see if your bite is the underlying source. With Dr. Jerry Simon’s FDA accepted, Best-Bite Discluder he will be able to test in 5 minutes if the cause of your pain is due to your bite. Treatment will not be presented if the test does not relieve your pain. To learn more about what to expect during your consultation click here.
If the test from the Best Bite Discluder relieves your pain for even a moment, then Dr. Simon knows that the reason for your pain is and uneven bite. The solution will be to eliminate the conflict between the teeth and jaw joints so there is no wobble in your bite. There are three options that can help achieve this –A bit guard, Bite adjustment, or orthodontic treatment. The treatment plan that will be presented to you will be the one that will best fit your situation and give you the relief you need.
Head, Neck and Facial Pain FAQs
Here are some of the FAQ we’ve received from our patients.
Headaches are a very broad category of problems and include dozens of potential causes. Dental causes of head, neck or facial pain could include cavities, abscessed teeth, gum infection, cysts, tumors of the jaw bones or swollen glands, broken or cracked teeth and TMJ dysfunction syndrome.
Unfortunately, your last dentist may not have looked at your bite and its relationship to your jaw joints. They may have given your bite a cursory look and pronounced it okay, but that is not the same thing as helping you get your jaw centered and then checking to see if your teeth line up in harmony with the joints. If closing your teeth together forces the jaw joints off-center, you have physical evidence of conflict between the teeth and the jaw joints.
