If you suffer from migraine or tension headaches, you know the pain and misery they can inflict. But what if there was a cost-effective, drug-free way to help you reduce or avoid your headaches altogether? Your dentist may be able to help, by fitting you for a small, comfortable mouthpiece that helps keep you from clenching your teeth while you’re asleep.
Stabilization splints have been proven to reduce headache triggers, like abnormal muscle contractions and teeth grinding, by nearly 70%. Because they’re small and unobtrusive, they don’t engage your gag reflex like other mouth appliances can.
Stabilization splints are also a viable option for you if you find yourself grinding your teeth, feeling pain in your jaw muscle, or just wanting to give your teeth’s biting surfaces and surrounding tissues some protection while recovering from dental trauma or a dental procedure. Why not contact us today and see if stabilization splints may be a good option for you?
