Migraine and Headache Solutions Relieve Your Pain

To relieve the pain that is caused by bruxism, our New Orleans, LA dentist here at 7 O’Clock Dental, LLC offers teeth grinding treatment. We’ll help you eliminate:
- Facial pain
- Sore muscles
- Sensitive teeth

Custom Mouthguard Can Ease Your Headache Pain
The most common way to relieve pain caused by tooth grinding and jaw clenching is with a mouthguard you wear while sleeping. Made of a soft material that cushions and protects your jaw and teeth, it stabilizes your jaw and prevents clenching or grinding. You’ll wake feeling rested and pain-free.
We take careful impressions of your teeth for a custom fit. This is a big advantage over mouthguards you purchase from a drugstore or other retail store. It’s like the difference between wearing a custom-tailored suit and one purchased off the rack. Other advantages:
- We use highly durable materials so our mouthguards better withstand wear and tear.
- We can customize the degree of thickness you need to protect your teeth.
- Our mouthguards both protect teeth and eliminate jaw tension. Most over-the-counter products only protect teeth.
We can also offer muscle relaxants that you take before bed. Along with a nighttime mouthguard, your days of teeth grinding and clenching can be at an end.
We Can Also Repair Damaged Teeth
If you have a long history of bruxism, you likely experience temperature sensitivity and possibly tooth pain due to the wearing away of enamel, which protects the sensitive inner portions of your teeth. We can restore your damaged teeth and help eliminate the long-term pain you may be feeling with our restorative dentistry services, including dental crowns.
