There is a neurological link between the upper cervical nerves and the sensory fibres of the trigeminal nerve, which receives nociceptive information from the face and other pain sensitive structures in the head. as the upper three cervical nerves enter the dorsal columns, via the dorsal root ganglion, their fibres synapse with the descending fibres of the spinal trigeminal nucleus which descends within the spinal cord caudally to the level of C3. Loss of Tricentric Relation and Facial Assymmetry.
Cervicogenic headache is pain referred to the head from a source in the cervical spine. unlike other types of headaches, cervicogenic headaches has attracted interest from disciplines other than neurology, in particular orthopaedic manual therapists (OMT) dentist in the area of craniofacial and oral pain, and interventional pain specialist (anaesthesiologist).
Under instability conditions, subjects showed a better balance when mandibule was in the most relaxed mandibular position. These findings raise two important points, a relaxed jaw position improves balance in subjects under unstable conditions and people with better occlusion show a better balance than people with “malocclusions, like crossbites, midline deviations, open bites, increased overjet and class ii.
     1) Significantly influencing postural control under experimental conditions were: crowding, midline deviation, crossbite, anterior open bite and more than 3 mm overjet.
     2) When comparing the angle class iii, the subjects with angle class ii showed the worse balance.
