Why do I get headaches in the morning?

If you find yourself waking up with headaches in the morning, you’re not alone. Sleep or health disorders and personal habits can trigger headaches when you wake up. Typically, sleep apnea, teeth grinding, toothaches, or a misaligned bite are the common culprits contributing to these unpleasant morning headaches. While you might not expect your oral health and headaches to be related, they are likely, so it is best to schedule a visit with a professional like Dr. Park for evaluation.

Do headaches go away on their own?

In the unfortunate case that you experience a headache that does not go away on its own, you may have an underlying issue that needs headache prevention treatment. While consistent sleep or finding a relaxing routine may reduce the number of headaches you experience, a mouthguard for headaches or another custom oral appliance is likely to aid in headache prevention treatment.
