Migraine headaches are debilitating. Ask anyone who suffers from migraines, and they will tell you about loss of work time, reduced quality of life, pain, pain, and more pain. The latest research indicates that some headaches may originate in the mouth, particularly if you are a woman. Clenching or grinding teeth can put terrific stress on the muscles, nerves, tendons and ligaments of the dentomandibular region that, in turn, can create chronic headaches, and even severe migraines.With the help of cosmetic dentists at Ballantyne Dentistry's Carolina Migraine Center in Charlotte, NC, residents no longer have to suffer the effects of migraine symptoms.
Clenching, grinding and chewing can cause migraine symptoms
When patients experience migraines, their first thought is to see a medical doctor. This is always a good decision, as chronic headaches could be caused by a variety of causes, some more serious than others, that require medical attention. However, if you have seen a medical doctor for migraine symptoms and still can’t find relief, or if the medication required for migraine headaches causes adverse side effects, you might want to consider a visit to Carolinas Migraine Center at the Ballantyne Center for Dentistry.
Think about it: The force required to chew and tear food is tremendous. If you are a nighttime grinder, or clench in your sleep, add that in to your daily chewing and tearing and you have a lethal combination for serious, painful symptoms that often include headaches. The wear and tear on muscles, nerves and tendons over years of this level of stress is akin to an athlete who puts the same amount of stress on his body to run a marathon or compete in professional football.
Headache, neck pain, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), clicking or popping in the jaw, are all symptoms related to dentomandibular stress. Sometimes an auto accident, wisdom tooth removal, or orthodontia can cause these symptoms to flare, and we may not even know our migraines are related.
Sports medicine technology aids in migraine diagnosis
Thanks to advances in sports medicine technology, cosmetic dentistry is now able to diagnosis migraines related to dental stress. The TruDenta treatment system employed at the Carolina Migraine Center, utilizes low-level laser therapy, therapeutic ultrasound, and micro-current nerve stimulation, the same therapies used for years in sports medicine, to address the painful symptoms related to dentomandibular sensorimotor conditions, or dental related headaches, as well as other symptoms.Carefully trained in this exciting, new TruDenta technology, the experienced cosmetic dentists at Ballantyne Center for Dentistry are ready to help patients who have suffered for years with migraines, headaches, in the latest migraine treatment, in their Charlotte offices today.
