Migraine Pain Prevention
Besides toothaches, TS Dental also treats patients who are suffering from migraines or tension headaches. Migraines can often be caused by bruxism, a condition that causes a person to grind or clench their teeth while asleep. This nighttime clenching and grinding places excessive amounts of pressure on your teeth and jaw areas, leading to migraines in the morning. The constant grinding and gnawing motion also wears down your chewing surfaces and damages your teeth.
To help prevent migraines and protect your teeth, TS Dental offers stabilization splints - a small mouthpiece that is worn while sleeping. Stabilization splints are affordable and highly effective at reducing migraines and headaches. These mouthpieces work by keeping your mouth in a relaxed position to prevent nighttime grinding and clenching. As a result, your teeth’s chewing surfaces won’t become worn down and you’re able to enjoy a better night’s sleep.
Stabilization splints have been shown to cut down on teeth grinding by as much as 70%. This is particularly impressive given the fact that this treatment is cost-effective and doesn’t require any surgery. And because stabilization splints are small and customized to your bite, they are comfortable to wear.
The best candidates for stabilization splints are people who suffer from bruxism or migraines or those who want to protect their teeth from grinding. If you are looking for migraine pain prevention, contact TS Dental in Richmond Hill or Thornhill to set up an appointment today.
