Do you suffer from headaches on a regular basis? Are you prone to migraines? Do you feel like you’ve tried everything? If you’re at the end of your tether and you’re struggling, we may be able to help.
There are many possible causes of headaches, and you may not think that dentists are in a position to help those plagued by pain. Often, headaches are nothing to do with dental issues, but sometimes, pain is linked to problems that we can correct. It is not uncommon for people to experience headaches as a result of grinding the teeth, for example. This action, which is also known as bruxism, applies pressure to the facial muscles, and this may be a reason why you’re getting pain, especially in the mornings. Grinding your teeth is a subconscious action, and you may not even realise that you do it while you’re asleep. As well as increasing the risk of headaches, bruxism can also contribute to TMJ disorder, which affects the jaw, and increase the risk of neck and shoulder pain.
If you are suffering from headaches and bruxism may play a role, we can provide you with a customised bite guard. This bite guard is used to prevent the top and bottom arches of teeth grinding together when you sleep. It is similar to a mouth guard, and it protects the teeth as well as reducing tension in the muscles.
At Harley Street Dental Studio, we pride ourselves on creating beautiful smiles, but we also strive to ensure our patients are happy and pain-free. We provide Botox treatment for migraines in cases where patients experience severe symptoms frequently. This treatment is not designed for people who have a migraine once or twice a month. It is aimed at those who spend most days in pain. Botox helps to alleviate the symptoms of migraines by suppressing nerve signals, which alert you to pain and by relaxing the facial muscles.
If you’re in pain, don’t suffer in silence. Call us today to find out how we could help you.
