Dear Ell,

It is unlikely that the tooth is causing your headaches, although it may be contributing.
There are two possible reasons that the plate they gave you is not helping: the first is that it may need further adjusting, and the second is that you may have pain from the arteries as well as muscle tension pain. Please call the clinic on 0861678911 and ask to speak to me personally, so that we can discuss this in more detail.
