Migraine Pain Prevention in Reno
Do you ever wake up with a throbbing migraine or a headache? Are you looking for a natural and effective solution to end your migraine pain? If so, you'll be glad to know that de Bruin Dental Center offers stabilization splints to effectively relieve migraines and headaches.
Morning migraines and headaches can often be caused by a nighttime condition known as bruxism. Bruxism occurs when a person grinds or clenches their teeth at night while sleeping. Because the person performs these actions while asleep, they are often unaware that these negative behaviors are damaging their teeth and causing them painful headaches. In addition, teeth grinding and clenching also erodes and damages your teeth’s chewing surfaces.
To protect your teeth, we may recommend stabilization splints for you to wear. Stabilization splints are small oral appliances that are worn while sleeping to keep your jaw in a comfortable position and protect your teeth from clenching and grinding.
The stabilization spends have been shown to be highly effective and can reduce nighttime clenching by as much as 70%. In addition, because the stabilization splints are very small, they are a comfortable fit and won't trigger your gag reflex while you are lying down. Each stabilization splint is custom-made according to your mouth’s specifications.
