Eliminate and Prevent Migraine Headaches and Jaw Pain with TMJ Treatment Services
By Dr. Harold Perlaza – Sherman Oaks California Dentist
Are you suffering from migraine headachesfrom “clenching” your jaw or “grinding” your teeth during your nighttime sleeping hours?
This symptom is caused by a condition called “TMJ” or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder.
Dr. Perlaza can help you get relief fast from tension and/or migraine headaches with our non-surgical TMJ treatment therapy.
How TMJ Migraine Treatment Works
If you are clenching your jaw or grinding your teeth while sleeping, you can experience migraine headaches, cracked or worn down teeth, and sore muscles in your face, neck and back.
The NTI Tension Suppression System is a new FDA-approved method of headache and migraine prevention that works by reducing night-time teeth clenching. This often intense nocturnal activity is purported to lead to a hyperactivity of the trigeminal nerve, often triggering painful migraine headaches. The objective of the NTI nightguard is to relax the muscles involved in clenching and mastication, thus diminishing the chances for migraines and tension headaches to develop.
TMJ Migraine Headache Prevention with the NTI Nightguard
The NTI (Nociception Trigeminal Inhibitor) is a small transparent plastic device which is worn over the two front teeth at night to prevent contact of the canines and molars. It is normally fitted by a dentist trained in the technique. This is a no-pain procedure that does not involve any drugs, shots, or surgery.
Dental Day Guards
Dental “day guards” are very effective against teeth grinding, clenching and neck pain during the day. Our patients find this dental appliance comfortable and easy to speak with. Our trained technicians will fabricate your day guard to your exact specifications to fit you perfectly.
Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes a full-mouth set of x-rays for proper diagnosis of inter-proximal decay of posterior teeth.
