New treatment options: Headaches and migraines

Headaches and migraines can affect anybody at one point in life. Research shows that the number of people who are affected can be as high as 9 out of 10. There are various factors that can cause headaches or migraines and one of them could be bruxism – the grinding or clenching of the teeth. Bruxism can have other very serious effects on ones overall health such as breaking or wearing of the teeth, swelling and receding of the gums, muscle and neck stiffness, disturbed sleep and sinus pain. Not many people know that the dentist might have the solution to their trouble with an appliance that can help ease the pressure and get some relief. The NTI splint is custom made and fitted over the teeth in order to reduce the pressure of clenching and grinding of the teeth. The muscles involved with these movements are sending a multitude of signals to the brain that due to being over stimulated can lead to a response that translates into a headache or migraine.
