Clarence Street Dental
Dental clinic, Migraine Headache Treatment
Many patients wake up with intense soreness in their jaw, teeth, or temples, or have neck, shoulder, or upper back pain that just won’t go away. Migraine sufferers often seek help from their family doctors, neurologists, chiropractors, and physiotherapists. But your dentist might actually hold the key to preventing these debilitating headaches and allow you to stop taking your pain medications!
Nighttime clenching is a very common habit. In migraine sufferers, overactive jaw muscles can result in intense muscle strains and persistent headaches. Your dentist can help stop these hyperactive jaw muscles from causing migraines with a special custom-fitted nightguard that is the only FDA-approved dental device proven to stop migraine pain.
You may have seen the FDA-approved drug-free treatment for the prevention of migraine and tension headaches in People magazine. This little miracle is called the NTI™ device, and it’s now available in our practice. It works by relaxing the muscles under the scalp and preventing the majority of headaches. Clinical trials showed that 82% of migraine sufferers achieved a 77% reduction in migraine events. It’s painless, fast, and NOT expensive. If you experience migraines or know someone who does then be sure to ask us about this exciting new treatment. Only a single, short appointment is needed, and it’s covered by most dental insurance plans.
