Relieve chronic headaches and jaw pain with treatment from a dentist in Smyrna, GA

Relieve Headache and Jaw Pain in Smyrna GA Area
Do you wake up with persistent jaw pain or headaches? Have you noticed that some of your teeth may be more worn down than others? If so, you could have a common dental condition called bruxism. Bruxism is the grinding and clenching of teeth that can occur unconsciously during the day or while you sleep. Bruxism is often very difficult to control and the symptoms can have a negative effect on quality of life. Fortunately, there are several different methods for treating bruxism to protect your teeth and control your symptoms. At Smyrna Dental & Headache Center in Smyrna, GA, Dr. Lamothe and the team are experienced at treating Bruxism.

What causes bruxism?

People grind or clench their teeth for several different reasons. One of the biggest causes is an abnormal bite or crooked teeth. It may also occur as a side effect of stress or sleep apnea. Other contributors to teeth grinding include:

  • Alcohol, caffeine, or nicotine use,
  • Genetics
  • Anxiety
  • Certain medications
Bruxism can have a seriously negative impact on your health, including loss of enamel, tooth fractures, receding gums and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). TMD has been linked to a host of side effects including chronic headaches and jaw pain.

Find relief from headaches and jaw pain with oral appliance therapy

Many individuals with these symptoms discover that their teeth grinding occurs primarily at night, when they don’t even know it’s occurring. To help with this, we may recommend oral appliance therapy with a custom occlusal guard. Night guards are comfortable appliances that fit snugly over the teeth while you sleep. The night guards help reduce the tension in your head and neck muscles to alleviate symptoms.
