Many people suffer from facial pain or migraines. Most doctors try to treat these problem with painkilling drugs without looking at the underlying cause. we often have patients coming to us with these symptoms thinking nothing can be done.
We often find the cause of these problems to be tooth grinding at night (bruxism) or clenching of the jaws. However, many of these patients can be treated using bite raising appliances to relieve the stress on the muscles of the face. These simple appliances are worn at night and can sometimes improve symptoms in days.
If you suffer with facial pain please speak to one of our dentists and they will be happy to help.
