If you suffer from migraine or tension headaches, you know the pain and misery they can inflict. What if there was a cost-effective, drug-free way to help you reduce or avoid your headaches altogether? Dr. Turner may be able to help by fitting you for a stabilization splint. A splint is a small, comfortable mouthpiece that helps keep you from clenching your teeth while you’re asleep.
Stabilization splints have been proven to reduce headache triggers like abnormal muscle contractions and teeth grinding by nearly 70%. Stabilization splints are small and unobtrusive and they don’t engage your gag reflex like other mouth appliances can.
Stabilization splints are also a viable option for you if you find yourself grinding your teeth, feeling pain in your jaw muscle or just wanting to give your teeth’s biting surfaces and surrounding hard tissues some protection while recovering from dental trauma or a dental procedure. Why not contact Dr. Turner today and see if stabilization splints may be a good option for you?
