Most everyone gets an occasional headache that’s easy to get rid of with over-the-counter pain medications. But if you wake up every day with headaches or pain your neck, jaw, or shoulders, there’s a good chance you’re clenching or grinding your teeth while you sleep.
Teeth Grinding and Headaches
Teeth grinding or bruxism affects millions and leads to pain and worn, cracked, or broken teeth. When you grind your teeth, the muscles in your jaw tense up. The pain spreads to other muscles on the sides and top of the head that causes a headache.
But many people find immediate headache relief in Castle Rock, CO with a small customized device worn over their teeth during sleep. Called an NTI appliance, it's customized to fit over your front teeth and prevent your upper and lower jaw from coming into contact with each other.
The device controls the tension created when you grind your teeth and removes the stress from your jaw joint and muscles. When your jaws can rest and recover, you will experience the headache relief you so desperately need.
Discovering the Source of Your Pain
You may have a teeth-grinding or clenching habit that could also benefit from additional therapies beyond an NIT splint. Dr. Brandt Jones has also helped patients at Oakwood Dental find relief with orthodontics, dental bite adjustment, and BOTOX®.
