Do you suffer from frequent tension headaches or migraines? Do you miss work, class or social events because of migraines and headache pain? If so, you may benefit from headache and migraine treatment at our office. Many people suffer from headaches as a result of bruxism, or teeth grinding and clenching. The added stress and strain on the jaw and facial muscles result in headaches that can cause a significant amount of pain and can interfere with your day-to-day life.
In order to reduce your headaches, our dentist may recommend a specialized mouth guard. Sometimes called a bite guard or night guard, this mouth guard fits over your teeth to prevent you from grinding and clenching your teeth. These mouth guards are most often worn at night while you sleep to prevent unconscious clenching and grinding. The bite guard can also be used to hold your jaw in a more correct position, relieving excess strain and helping to reduce the frequency of your headaches. Our team will make certain that your bite guard fits comfortably and effectively to treat your headache and migraine pain.
