Stop Your Head From Hurting With Our Treatment

It’s no fun dealing with headaches, especially when there doesn’t seem to be any obvious cause for them. The fact is, there can be many causes for headaches and migraines. One of the leading causes of tension headaches is from grinding your teeth, a habit also known as bruxism.

If you grind your teeth in your sleep, you can wake up with a massive headache that lasts well into the day, with seemingly no relief in sight except to wait it out. Our dental practice can successfully treat this type of headache using a custom oral appliance. You’ll wear it at night (or whenever you sleep), and it will help keep you from grinding your teeth. Without teeth grinding, you’re likely to experience fewer and less severe headaches.

A custom appliance works better than a store-bought appliance because:

  • It’s made from impressions of your teeth, so it fits you perfectly.
  • We use only the highest quality materials, so it can last for years with proper care.
  • If any adjustments are needed, we can do that for you. We’ll monitor you to make sure the appliance is working as it should.

Bruxism can also damage the enamel on your teeth, eventually leading to the need for restorative dentistry. The appliance keeps you from grinding your teeth, so you’re not damaging your enamel. It’s a win-win situation, with no headaches and no dental damage!
