Sometimes patients present with complaints about migraine headaches. Even though majority of those symptoms should be treated by a physician, should be treated by a neurologist or different specialties, some of those complaints, some of those symptoms can be treated in a dental office. Sometimes, a simple solution to that could be, believe it or not, full-mouth reconstruction, giving the patient their lost vertical dimension. In other words, the size of the face, restore the collapse of the face, which affects the relationship between joints, the temporomandibular joint. Sometimes you can simply make the patient a nightguard and solve that problem.

Let Our Team Give You Headache Help
It’s no fun having constant headaches, especially when you don’t have any explanation for them. Teeth grinding (bruxism) could be to blame, however. Many people don’t realize that they grind their teeth while sleeping. It’s an involuntary action and can often go undetected except by a trained dentist who knows to look for signs of bruxism during your regular checkups.
Teeth grinding can slowly destroy your tooth enamel and lead to cavities, infection, and increased tooth sensitivity. But even more than that, research has linked teeth grinding and clenching to headaches. Bruxism increases tension in your facial and temporal muscles that can lead to migraines and other headaches.
A specially fit mouthguard from Dental Expressions by Dr. Gary Bram can help with all these problems. During your complimentary consultation, Dr. Bram will give your teeth and jaw a thorough examination. If your teeth appear abnormally worn or flattened, teeth grinding is most likely to blame.
We will take digital impressions of your mouth to make a custom mouthguard. Because it’s fitted just for your mouth, it will be comfortable and won’t disrupt your sleep. It will, however, keep your teeth apart and help prevent all the problems associated with teeth grinding, headaches in particular.
You’ll wake up feeling better and more refreshed. Plus, you’ll protect your teeth and help prevent long-term dental problems that could require restorative work. It’s a win-win situation for you!
