The Connection Between Teeth Grinding And Migraines
Do you ever wake up in the morning with a sore jaw or a headache? This could be a sign that you’re grinding your teeth while you sleep. Not only can grinding teeth prematurely wear them down, but it can also put a lot of strain and tension on the jaw muscles.
A stabilization splint is a type of mouthguard that prevents teeth grinding, helping the jaw muscles relax while you sleep. Because of its small size, it shouldn’t cause gagging. It may also save you from having to undergo dental procedures and treatments to repair the damage caused to your teeth by long-term teeth grinding.
Dr. Dhillon and Dr. McDermid can answer all your questions about the connection between teeth grinding and migraines and whether treatment here can help.
What Is TMJ Disorder? Does TMJ Disorder Cause Migraines?
The joint where your lower and upper jaw meet is complicated. It’s called the temporomandibular joint, or TMJ for short. There’s potential for misalignment, muscle strain, and soreness of the TMJ. TMJ disorder comes with many symptoms, some that can appear unrelated. These symptoms include migraines and headaches. After a comprehensive exam, your dentist can develop a treatment plan for you if you have TMJ disorder.
