If you or anyone you know suffers from headaches or migraines, the solution might be as simple as a tiny removable device. We have had great success for many years alleviating the intense pain of migraine, jaw, or neck pain where drugs have failed. Unfortunately, very few doctors and even fewer patients are aware of this new, non-drug, non-invasive but tremendously successful treatment.
Occlusal Splints / Nightguards
Occlusal splints/nightguards are custom-made appliances for people who grind or clench their teeth, have a history of TMJ pain and dysfunction, or have required a lot of dental treatment. These are made from a processed clear acrylic and help to guide the lower jaw to an ideal position, and as it moves side to side and front to back during sleep.
This device not only protects the teeth from harmful habits, but it is therapeutic in supporting the TMJ and helps relax the muscles used for chewing.
