Say Goodbye to Migraines & Headaches

There are many reasons for headaches. One of the most common causes is teeth grinding, also known as bruxism. Many people grind their teeth in their sleep without knowing it. Not only can this habit damage your tooth enamel, it can cause migraine and tension headaches. By stopping bruxism, we’ll end these headaches and protect your tooth enamel at the same time.

Your pain relief will come in the form of a custom-fitted mouthguard that you wear while sleeping. We’ll take impressions of your teeth that are used to create a professional mouthguard that fits you perfectly. When you wear it while sleeping, it will:

  • Keep your teeth apart and prevent you from grinding them
  • Enable you to wake up feeling refreshed with no headache
  • Avoid damage to your tooth enamel that could require restorative dentistry to repair
  • Relieve pressure on your jaw that can cause TMJ pain

In addition, we treat jaw pain with MLS (multi-wave locked system) laser therapy. You will love this treatment because it is painless and very effective. The laser will accelerate tissue repair, relieve inflammation, and stimulate new cell growth.

Your treatment begins with a simple exam. We’ll look for signs of teeth grinding that could be causing your headaches. Then we’ll make a diagnosis for a custom mouthguard and/or MLS laser therapy as needed. Soon you’ll wake up ready for the day, without any headache pain to slow you down.
