Migraine Pain Prevention in Toronto - North York Dentist
If you are one of the many individuals who suffer from migraines or headaches, you already know how horrible they can be. Sometimes the pain can be so bad that you can't get out of bed. Dr. John Chung at Dentistry on Bayview provides stabilization splints as a way to effectively relieve your headache and migraine pain.
Stabilization splints are a type of oral appliance that you wear while sleeping to alleviate the stress placed on your jaw joints caused from nighttime grinding and clenching. Because most nighttime teeth grinders are unaware of their actions, stabilization splints can relax your tense jaw muscles and protect your teeth from grinding. Stabilization splints are suitable for people suffering from headaches, jaw muscle pain, and those who want to protect their teeth. Because stabilization splints are smaller than traditional bite guards, they provide a better fit and protection.
These oral appliances have been shown to effectively reduce abnormal muscle contractions and teeth grinding by as much as 70%. In addition, because of their small size, they won't trigger your gag reflex and so you can enjoy your sleep. If you are looking for a natural and effective solution to alleviating your headaches, contact Dr. John Chung at Dentistry on Bayview in North York to set up an appointment today.
