Migraine Pain Prevention
If you suffer from tension or migraine headaches, Dr. Haslam may have a way to help reduce the frequency and intensity of your headaches: Stabilization splints. Appropriate for headache sufferers—as well as those who may be experiencing tooth wear, jaw muscle pain, or those who simply want to protect their mouth’s surfaces during a time of healing --a properly-fitted stabilization splint is smaller and more comfortable than a traditional biteguard. Stabilization splints can prevent and/or reduce the intensity of jaw clenching while you sleep, which can minimize headaches and create a variety of other benefits:
•Reduces teeth grinding and abnormal muscle contractions by nearly 70%
•Doesn’t trigger your gag reflex, meaning you’re more likely to wear it and benefit from it!
•Costs less and has fewer side effects than prescription drugs
•Allows you to avoid the need for tooth repair due to jaw clenching and teeth grinding in your sleep
Are stabilization splints the answer to your headache nightmares? Talk to Basinview Dental Centre to see if stabilization splints can help you live a happier, more pain-free life.
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? Basinview Dental Centre may be able to help, by fitting you for a stabilization sprint—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 hard tissues some protection while recovering from dental trauma or a dental procedure.
