Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD) is very common and this high prevalence makes its diagnosis and therapeutic methods necessary. In many cases, in addition to the position of the disc, the morphology of other joint components such as joint protrusion can also be deformed, suggesting a possible association between the position of the disc and the morphology of the bony components of the joint. Headache is among the most common complaints in patients suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder. Thus, it seems that evaluation of patients with headache in terms of TMD is necessary. In patients with TMD parafunctional activities play an important etiologic role considering the high prevalence of bruxism and TMD in patients with headache. So, there is important relationship between headache and TMD. Some factors can affect TMD, such as trauma, dental premature contacts, parafunctional habits and psychological factors.
Cochrane, Embase, Google scholar, and BMJ clinical evidence were searched directly by using relevant key words during last six years because of the high number of studies in this field, we discuss about bruxism and TMD, TMD and headache, and bruxism and headache treatment.
Conclusion: Bruxism and Temporomandibular disorder are the two main problems that is common treatment of these two phenomen would be effective in the treatment of headache.
