Don’t just treat your migraines, prevent them!
At the office of Dr. Danielle Muse and Dr. Samuel Moss, we understand the suffering that comes from living with migraine headaches. Not only is the pain almost unbearable, but it’s debilitating. It prevents you from living your day-to-day life – it affects your work, your relationships and social life, and prevents you from being the person you want to be.
Not only have we seen success in our patients who have treated their migraines, but we know from personal experience. Dr. Moss, himself was one of the 23 million Americans suffering from migraines or tension headaches, and found relief with what many of his patients are now calling a “miracle cure.”
What does a dentist have to do migraines?
When we think of migraines, dentistry is not always the first thing that comes to mind. However, your Lafayette dentist is in a unique position to get you the relief you deserve. Most folks don’t realize the strong and evident correlation between teeth grinding and clenching, or bruxism, and headaches. In fact, most folks don’t realize they grind their teeth at all.
We all carry our stress in different parts of our body. For many it’s in the neck and shoulders, some people clench their fists, but most people, without even realizing it, tend to carry stress in their jaw and mouth by clenching and grinding their teeth. This is one of the leading causes of migraines and tension headaches.
How does migraine treatment work?
If you are suffering from migraines or tension headaches, your Lafayette dentist can provide you with a couple of different options for relief.
It might sound funny, using Botox to treat migraine headaches. Most patients think Botox® is only used for cosmetic purposes to fill wrinkles. However, in recent years, the FDA has approved the use of Botox in treating head, neck, and facial pain. It works by relaxing the muscles in the face, easing tension, relieving pain, and letting you get back to living your life pain-free. Please visit our Dental Botox® page for more information.
Night guards are one of the most recommended, most successful ways to treat migraines and tension headaches without invasive surgery or medication. A night guard is a custom oral appliance, or a mouth guard that you wear every night while you sleep to prevent clenching and grinding. This simple treatment has provided unmatched relief for our patients who suffer from chronic pain of the head, neck, face, and jaw. No side effects, no prescriptions, no surgery – night guards are a safe, effective, and natural way to treat and prevent migraines and tension headaches.
