1300 Migraine (1300 64472463)
At 53 I noticed my teeth and smile were deteriorating rapidly. Through recommendations and several hours searching the internet I came across the Cosmetic Dentists of Australia web site and learnt how this group of dentists have all been trained at one of Americas Premier Dental Training Institutes, the Las Vegas Institute of advanced dental studies. I chose one of these CDA dentists to give me a New Smile makeover, and since then I have never smiled with so much confidence. My new smile changed my life…. I did it….. Why don’t you.?.

Drug Free Relief for Chronic Headache Pain

If you are one of the millions who suffer from the debilitating effects of migraine or tension headaches, your dentist may not be the first healthcare provider you think to call. 

But think again.  Specialist Neuromuscular Dentists are now leading the charge in the fight against chronic migraine headache pain. 

Their weapon of choice is the Dentabite Dental Orthotic - or DDO device, for short.

Designed by a team of leading Australian dentists and Dental technicians  (and migraine sufferer)

It is a clear and removable appliance worn while you sleep. When inserted it prevents teeth from coming into intense contact, effectively short-circuiting one’s ability to clench. The result is a reduction in the intensity of neuromuscular contractions of the muscles in the head, neck, and jaw by as much as 66%.

Though the exact origin of migraine pain has yet to be determined, it has been duly concluded that clenching of the jaw can be a significant contributing factor in severity and frequency of headache pain (in general) and migraine pain (specifically).

While it’s normal to occasionally clench as you sleep, excessive clenching results in exaggerated contraction and overworking of the muscles of the head, neck, and jaw. 

 The resultant strain and spasms can cause considerable and chronic pain.  What’s more, disruption of the REM sleep cycle can leave one feeling weak and tired.

Research clearly indicates that relaxation of these overstrained muscles can greatly reduce the severity and the recurrence of chronic headaches and promote more restful sleep, making the NTI device a highly effective tool of treatment. 

 In fact, 86% of migraine sufferers experienced an average of 90% reduction in migraine pain after sustained use.*

If you are a headache sufferer, you may not even be aware that you are clenching.  Ask yourself these diagnostic questions: 

  • Do you have frequent head, neck or jaw pain? 
  • Do you often feel fatigued or uncomfortable, even after a full night’s sleep?
  • Do you feel stiffness or soreness in your neck or jaw? 

 If your answer to any of these questions is yes, allow the skilled staff of the Migraine Dental Group the opportunity to assess your case.

In as little as one hour, their doctors can determine if you could benefit from the use of an NTI device and can custom fit and fabricate your appliance while you wait.

 Many patients begin feeling relief in as little as a few days.

The DDO device is proven for the treatment of migraine headache pain as an effective, affordable, and drug free solution f “At the Migraine Dental Group,” our commitment is to the overall wellbeing of our patients.  We feel gratified to offer a drug free alternative to traditional pharmacological treatments.

TMJTMJ (temporomandibular joint) problems manifest themselves in a variety of ways. The most common symptoms of TMJ are migraine headaches. Commonly a tension headache. Many people who suffer from this type of headache describe it as a ring of pain around the head. TMJ related headaches are often caused where there is a constant contraction of the muscles in the jaw. This results in tension in the face, head and neck.

This tension in the muscles reduces the amount of blood that is able to reach the area. The body responds by sending more blood to the area, which results in an increase in blood pressure to the muscles of the head resulting in a headache.  Clenching and grinding of teeth is creating a contraction of the muscles, which results in pain.

Aligning the temporomandibular joint and placing the jaw into its optimal position through neuromuscular dentistry can alleviate most headache problems related to TMJ, muscle, nerve and joint disorder.

Many millions suffer from migraine headaches, a type of headache that can often be debilitating. There are 3 times as many women sufferers as men. While any headache can uncomfortable, migraine headaches will often cause incapacitation.

People will often experience a warning know as an aura. These are usually sensations such as flashing lights, blind spots or tingling in the extremities.

In addition to the pain of a headache, migraine symptoms can also include nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to sound and light.

The only relief many can find is by retreating to a dark quiet room for hours or even days. When left untreated, a typical migraine can last anywhere from 4 hours to days.

There is a lot that is not understood about headaches. Some researchers believe that migraines may be the result of changes in the trigeminal nerve system, which is a major pathway in the cranial nervous system. It is felt that changes in brain chemicals such as serotonin affect the pain messages running along this pathway.

When a headache occurs, the level of serotonin in the brain drops. Scientists believe that this causes the trigeminal nerve to release a protein which travels to the brain's outer covering. This protein causes the blood vessels of the outer covering to become dilated and inflamed. This results in a headache.

The type of migraine varies from person to person. Most people don't experience the aura before their headache. Those that do are experiencing what is known as a Classic Migraine. Whether you experience an aura or not, many people have sensations or premonitions before the headache actually occurs.

 

These symptoms may include: elation or intense levels of energy, craving for sweets, drowsiness, irritability, depression or thirst.

Migraine headache triggers

There are a number of things that may trigger a migraine:

Hormonal changes. The exact mechanism between headaches and hormones is not fully understood. Changes in estrogens and progesterone seem to cause migraine in a number of women. Women who have a history of migraines report there occurrence right before or after their periods. Those women who take contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy often report migraines.

Foods. Many people develop headaches after eating certain food. The most common food causes include: alcohol, especially red wine; aged cheeses; chocolate; fermented, pickled or marinated foods; aspartame; caffeine; monosodium glutamates; certain seasonings; and many canned and processed foods.

Stress. Stress is often cited as a major contributor to migraines. Whether it occurs at home or work, the body can react to stress with a headache.

Sensory stimulus. Bright or flashing lights and glaring sun can causes headache pain. Certain smells such as perfume and flowers, and unpleasant odours, such as paint thinner and cigarette smoke.

Physical factors. Heavy manual work or exercise can set off a headache. Also, changes in sleep habits including too much or too little sleep can trigger a headache.

Changes in the environment. Changes in the weather, such as rain storms or changes in altitude, such as going to the mountains, can result in a headache. A change of weather, season, altitude level, barometric pressure or time zone can prompt a migraine headache.

Medications. Certain medications can aggravate migraines - Neuromuscular migraine dentistry is a more permanent option

All of these factors can contribute to the occurrence of a migraine headache.

But the biggest factor is a poor bite relationship.

When the upper and lower jaw are not aligned properly, it results in the muscles being in a constant state of contraction.

These muscles cause the jaws to come together 2000-3000 times every day during chewing and swallowing.

After a while, the muscles get tired and go into spasm. There is a build-up of lactic acid and other waste metabolites due to increased blood pressure in the muscles, which prevents normal blood flow. This is the primary cause of migraines which can often be relieved through neuromuscular migraine dentistry.
