Wake Up Without Migraines

You may be dealing with frequent headaches and migraines for many reasons. However, one of the most common causes of headaches is bruxism, or teeth grinding. Your headaches may not be from an inflamed TMJ (jaw joint) – as patients often believe. Instead, clenching and grinding in your sleep could be straining the muscles in your face and head. Studies have shown a direct link between bruxism, tension, and migraines.

At our practice, you can treat these problems with these services:

  • Custom Night Guard – This is a kind of mouthguard made to be worn while you are asleep. It gently repositions your lower jaw forward, easing tension on your jaw joint and preventing you from grinding and clenching your teeth.
  • Deprogrammer – This device will prevent your back teeth from clenching together or even touching, relieving tension on your jaw joint and muscles. Over time, this appliance aligns your bite into its proper position. This reduces tension on your muscles for fewer and less intense headaches and fewer painful spasms in your jaw.

With either migraine treatment option, you’ll avoid potential damage caused by unchecked teeth grinding. Left untreated, bruxism can wear down your tooth enamel, requiring care from a restorative dentist to correct it.

Our Mundelein migraine and headache solutions can help you feel like a new person. Call us today at 847-652-9147 or schedule online to begin your treatment at Michael S. Roessler DDS Cosmetic & Family Dentistry.

Common Questions About Migraine & Headache Solutions

What causes headaches?

There could be any number of reasons for your headaches, from stress to sleep deprivation to caffeine withdrawal to more serious underlying health issues. You may also be causing them without knowing it if you grind your teeth or clench down on your jaw unwittingly. This is especially tricky to determine if you tend to do this while you sleep.

How is a migraine different from a headache?

Every year, there are more than three million reported cases of migraines in the U.S., so it’s more common than you might think. A migraine is a unique type of head pain that’s often far more intense and accompanied by other unpleasant symptoms like light and sound sensitivity and nausea. You may experience migraines that come with painful throbbing in one concentrated area of your head as well.

How can a dentist help relieve my headaches and migraines?

We can take measurements of your mouth to create a custom mouth splint that you can wear while you sleep. This strategy is a conservative but effective way to relieve the pressure on your teeth and jaw and ultimately reduce or eliminate your headaches. Dr. Roessler may also suggest TMJ treatment to relieve your pain.
