Migraine & Headache Therapy
Migraine & Headache Therapy in Yardley
Do you suffer from chronic headaches or migraines? The truth is that most migraines are triggered by atypical muscle activity, usually in the form of nighttime grinding or clenching (parafunction).
Our Bucks County dentists have helped many patients to significantly reduce the intensity of their headache/migraine pain, reduce the frequency or eliminate migraines altogether! Many patients no longer need prescription medications to alleviate their discomfort.
The NTI “Release Application” is a device that snaps into place and fits comfortably on either the upper or lower front teeth. It is worn during sleep (occasionally during the day) and prevents the intensity of muscular parafunction.
Orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign and smile design, can aid in the reduction of functional dental problems related to migraines and headaches. For those patients with severely damaged teeth, dental implants and dentures are often the best options. In some cases, conservative treatment of overactive muscles with botulinum toxin (Botox, Xeomin) in small doses can “reset” the muscles, in turn relieving tension, muscle pain, and headaches.
