Hello and welcome back to the Perrigo Dental Care blog!

We know that certain dental issues can really be a pain in the neck. And head. And jaw.

If you are experiencing that kind of pain, you may not even know what the root cause is, only that you want it to stop ASAP!

If you rely on a daily dose of aspirin to help you handle your chronic headaches, that can be frustrating, and, well, ineffective.

If you have you been to your general practitioner only to find that medical treatments mask the issue rather than deliver relief, you might want to throw in the towel and cry.

There are a couple of things you can take solace in:

#1 You are not alone. Millions of Americans suffer from chronic headaches.

#2 There is another way to resolve your issues. You can visit a dentist like Dr. Perrigo who is trained to diagnose and treat headaches with state-of-the-art oral appliances.

We Can Get You Some Relief

At Perrigo Dental Care, we treat patients all the time who come in complaining about headaches and others issues related to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).

How are chronic headaches related to problems with the TMJ?

Well, for one thing, patients with TMJ issues often clench or grind their teeth a night, a condition known as bruxism.

Here’s the other thing: there may be alignment issues at work too or perhaps you have experienced some sort of seemingly unrelated trauma that agitated the TMJ.

The good news is that, our team can effectively treat TMJ issues and/or chronic headaches using special mouth splints or mouthguards.

This Is How We Do It

One device that we have had success using is the NTI splint. This special acrylic device is custom fit to your teeth and inhibits the molars from touching. You will simply wear the device at night as a way to take the pressure off the TMJ.

Patients who clench or grind their teeth at night often do it involuntarily for hours at a time. Imagine the amount of constant pressure you are putting on your temple and TMJ.

The NTI device can eliminate the pressure and begin relieving your headaches for good.

We also have other good options.

When the source of your headaches is definitely due to an issue with your TMJ, we can create a custom fit appliance that will move the lower jaw in a more appropriate position.

We use digital X-rays and panoramic X-rays to diagnose and plan out treatments for your TMJ issues. Our TMJ mouthguard helps take the pressure off the TMJ and resolves clenching or grinding issues.

End Your Headaches Now!

Headaches can adversely impact your day to day existence. You know that more than anyone. As such, we hope that you have been inspired by today’s post to take back your life.
