One common cause of migraine headaches is tooth grinding or clenching. Also called bruxism, this condition is often a result of stress or anxiety.

Bruxism can lead to a wide range of dental and general health problems, including:

Migrain Treatment Options

There are a range of treatment options for migraines that are caused by bruxism or TMJ. Although TMJ is a common condition, the underlying causes can be complex and the condition is often misdiagnosed and mistreated. Consulting with Dr. Quartuccio and Dr. Frye is the best way to make sure you receive an accurate diagnosis of your condition. This will ensure the right treatment for your particular case is recommended.

Dr. Quartuccio and Dr. Frye use advanced technology to analyze your bite and accurately assess your underlying condition. This approach to migraine treatment allows for effective individualized care. Some of the most common migraine treatments we recommend include:

  • TENS Therapy: Transcutaneous electrical neural stimulation (TENS) uses a mild electrical stimulation to relax the muscles of the jaw and face. This deep relaxation allows your jaw to settle into its natural resting position.
  • Oral Appliances: Both fixed and removable oral appliances may be used to bring your jaw into alignment. Mouth guards may be used to protect the teeth from the wear and tear of bruxism.
  • Dental Restorations: Dental restorations may be used to help restore proper bite alignment.
  • Other Treatments:       Depending on your specific TMJ symptoms, we may recommend other treatments, including orthodontics, chiropractic treatment, massage or physical therapy.
