Migraine Pain Prevention
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? North Ajax dental can help, by fitting you for a stabilization splint—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.
Benefits of stabilization splints:
- Reduces teeth grinding and abnormal muscle contractions
- 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 medications
- Allows you to avoid the need for tooth repair due to jaw clenching and teeth grinding in your sleep
