If you suffer from tension or migraine headaches, Drs. Belasco, Ober & Associates may have a way to help reduce the frequency and intensity of your headaches: Stabilization splints. Appropriate for headache sufferers—as well as those who may be experiencing tooth wear, jaw muscle pain, or those who simply want to protect their mouth’s surfaces during a time of healing –a properly-fitted stabilization splint is smaller and more comfortable than a traditional biteguard. Stabilization splints can prevent and/or reduce the intensity of jaw clenching while you sleep, which can minimize headaches and create a variety of other benefits:
- Reduces teeth grinding and abnormal muscle contractions by nearly 70%
- Doesn’t trigger your gag reflex, meaning you’re more likely to wear it and benefit from it!
- Costs less and has fewer side effects than prescription drugs
- Allows you to avoid the need for tooth repair due to jaw clenching and teeth grinding in your sleep
Are stabilization splints the answer to your headache nightmares? Talk to Drs. Belasco, Ober & Associates to see if stabilization splints can help you live a happier, more pain-free life.
