If you suffer from migraine or tension headaches, you know the pain and misery they can inflict. But what if there was a cost-effective, drug-free way to help you reduce or avoid your headaches altogether? Toothworks Calgary may be able to help, by fitting you for a stabilization splint or night guard—a small, comfortable mouthpiece that helps to protect your teeth and muscles while you’re asleep.
Stabilization splints have been proven to reduce headache triggers, like abnormal muscle contractions and teeth grinding, by nearly 70%, and because they’re small and unobtrusive, they don’t engage your gag reflex like other mouth appliances can.
Even if you do not suffer from migraines, you may still benefit from a stabilization splint if you: grind your teeth, feel pain in your jaw muscle, or just want to give your teeth’s biting surfaces and surrounding hard tissues some protection while recovering from dental trauma or a dental procedure.
So give Toothworks in Calgary a call, and see if a stabilization splint may be a good option for you.
