Migraine help from PBA Dental Health in Liverpool

At the dentist?!

If you, or someone you know suffers from Migraines or severe headaches you’ll understand how incapacitating they can be.  Many people live with these symptoms for years and suffer in silence not knowing that there may be a solution to their problem.

Many of these headaches and migraines are caused by temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). This joint is where your lower jaw connects to your skull. When this joint gets out of alignment, it is referred to as TMD, and it can cause the muscles in your face, head, and neck that surround the joint, to strain at everything they do.

These strained muscles can then cause headaches or TMJ migraines. TMJ headaches are often so painful, severe, and frequent that they are misdiagnosed as migraines. One of the ways to determine if you are suffering from headaches or migraines as a result of TMD is by getting diagnosed by one of the dentists at PBA Dental Health.

If the migraines or headaches are caused by TMD then we can often offer a solution.  At PBA Dental Health we have successfully treated many individuals with severe, longstanding headaches using Occlusal Splint Therapy. Initially, splint therapy involves the construction of a small, plastic mouthguard which is usually worn at night-time.
