Find relief from chronic morning headaches with treatment from our Manassas VA area dentist office.
Daily occurring headaches may be related to an oral health concern. TMJ disorders and teeth grinding can cause patients to experience headaches, especially in the morning. Headaches can be frustrating, make it difficult to concentrate, and can begin to interfere with the quality of your daily life. Teeth grinding often occurs while a patient is sleeping, making it challenging to diagnose.
Visiting the dentist for chronic headaches is commonly overlooked. If you experience frequent headaches, let Dr. Hassan know during your next dental appointment. Many patients suffer unnecessarily for many years because they are unable to find adequate treatment. Treating chronic headaches caused by bruxism or TMJ requires patients to address the cause of the tension. Chronic pain caused by teeth grinding is commonly unresponsive to symptomatic treatment options and involves bite and jaw analysis by a trained dentist.
Bruxism & Chronic Headaches
Chronic headaches caused by teeth grinding can make it difficult to perform well in class or at work. Headaches are distracting, painful, and can affect your well being. Patients who habitually grind their teeth in their sleep are also prone to excessively worn teeth, receding gum lines and even tooth loss. Treating bruxism early can help patients avoid subsequent oral health complications.
Children and adults may grind their teeth in their sleep. An oral sleep appliance specifically designed to fit your teeth can help prevent daily headaches. The oral sleep appliance helps to realign the jaw and prevent the teeth from grinding during sleep. Patients who wear an oral sleep appliance often report experiencing headaches less frequently and wake up feeling more refreshed.
