Do you suffer from tension or migraine headaches? Millcroft Dental Care may have something to help reduce the frequency and intensity of your headaches: Stabilization splints. A properly-fitted stabilization splint can also help with tooth wear, jaw muscle pain, or to protect the surface of your mouth during a time of healing. It is smaller and more comfortable than a traditional bite guard. Stabilization splints work by preventing and/or reducing the intensity of jaw clenching while you sleep. This has a variety of benefits:
- It reduces teeth grinding and abnormal muscle contractions by nearly 70%
- It doesn’t trigger your gag reflex, meaning you’re more likely to wear it and benefit from it!
- It costs less and has fewer side effects than prescription drugs
- It allows you to avoid the need for tooth repair due to jaw clenching and teeth grinding in your sleep
