If you have every suffered from a migraine then you will understand just how debilitating it can be when a migraine attack come on. Unfortunately there is no cure for people who suffer from this condition with most enduring a lifetime of taking strong pain medication when a migraine starts. For some people that suffer from migraines there are clear triggers such as bright lights or certain foods, and so by avoiding these migraine triggers they can avoid the headaches. For others that suffer from chronic headaches or migraines there are no clear triggers and they can seem to start without any reason.
Whilst there is no single cure for migraines there are several treatments available that can help reduce their frequency of onset. We are happy to be provide a drug free treatment that can significantly reduce the severity of migraines in certain people. In some people headaches and migraines can be due to the build up of stress. Many people will clench their teeth tightly or even grind their teeth throughout the night when they are sleeping which will put extra stress on the muscles in their head and neck. In turn these muscles will become tender and strained and can lead to headaches and migraines and if they do not directly lead to migraines then they will make migraines worse when a trigger sets one off.
At Complete Dental Care we can make a special, custom fit, small appliance that is worn in your mouth during the night when you sleep. It is called a NTI splint and it works by releaveing the strain in the muscles around your jaw, head and neck which in turns will help to reduce the frequency of headaches and migraines. Also if a migraine attack does occur then it will usually help to reduce the severity of the migraine. It is non-invasive and can make a major improvement for many people. If you visit our migraine treatment page then you can see testimonial videos for several people that we have helped gain relief from their chronic headaches.
