Migraine Pain Prevention
If you suffer from migraine or tension headaches, you know the pain and misery they can inflict. What if you had a cost-effective, drug-free way to help you reduce or avoid your headaches altogether? Garden City Dental may be able to help, by fitting you for a stabilization splint—a small, comfortable mouthpiece that helps keep you from clenching your teeth while you sleep.
Stabilization splints have been proven to reduce headache triggers, like abnormal muscle contractions and teeth grinding, by nearly 70%. Because splints are 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. Contact Garden City Dental to learn how stabilization splints may be a good option for you.
