Millions of Americans deal with migraines and headaches. Headaches can have a wide range of causes, though most of the diagnosed headaches are a result of muscle tension. This can create not only headaches but severe migraines in many patients. Health care practitioners typically address these concerns with pharmaceuticals to help patients seeking relief from the symptoms they have.
The most common types of headaches include:
- Muscle tension, which occur in the neck or temples and can be constant or
- Migraines, associated with dizziness, light sensitivity, poor sound tolerance, and neurological symptoms.
- Sinus headaches, associated with pressure and pain in the forehead or underneath the eyes.
If you are receiving care for your headache and migraines from a physician, this is great to hear, as pharmaceuticals can help patients in getting back their quality of life when headaches and migraines occur. Other patients may be able to find relief by visiting a dentist. A dentist who is trained in treating headaches effectively, such as the team of Parker-Nickolas-Read Dental, may be able to analyze the neuromuscular issues and jaw positioning which may be factors contributing to the headaches and migraines. Help from a dentist may also be desirable when patients find that their condition is not responding to traditional medications.
The headaches commonly not responsive to conventional treatment solutions are typically the types of headaches our practice specializes in treating. We provide patients with solutions such as non-invasive appliance therapy, which eliminates the need for pharmaceuticals in many instances. Oral appliance therapy is proven effective in situations in which patients are unable to control their condition with medication. Our practice works with a wide range of oral appliances and can help determine the one best to meet the needs of each specific individual and their unique situations.

This may be a wonderful option for you if you have struggled with migraines and headaches with no relief from traditional therapies.
