Migraine & headache solutions

If you suffer from chronic migraines and headaches with no clear diagnosis, Dr. Patel may be able to help. Infinite Smiles can determine whether your pain originates from dental issues and provide you with premier solutions.

What is causing your migraines?

Grinding or clenching your teeth regularly will often lead to frequent headaches or migraines. You may grind or clench your teeth while you sleep or as a reaction to stress during the day.

This chronic grinding or clenching of your teeth is called bruxism. Bruxism can lead to severe pain in the jaw and facial muscles, often called TMJ pain.

Another dental cause of persistent headaches is malocclusion, or bad bite. This can cause stress on your jaw that in turn can contribute to headaches.

Getting to the root of your problem

Using our state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, Dr. Patel can get an incredibly detailed look at your facial structure. This includes how the position of your jaw is affecting your bite, and thus what is triggering your headaches.

When your jaw is misaligned with your bite, it can cause unnatural wear on your teeth and destroy restorations. Our diagnostic tools can find the most ideal spot for your jaw muscles and joints to rest.

Treatment with a custom biteguard

If your headaches are triggered by intense teeth grinding or clenching, you may find relief with a biteguard. A biteguard, also known as a nightguard, is a custom oral appliance that prevents bruxism and repositions your jaw.

Our appliance is made of clear acrylic resin and custom fit for your teeth. Your biteguard will prevent your upper and lower back teeth from clenching and grinding together to produce headaches.

Migraine treatment with Botox®

Chronic headaches and migraines can also be treated with Botox® injections. Botox® is a common method to cosmetically improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It can also help reduce headaches and eliminate pain by relaxing the muscles which are associated with frequent headaches.

Dr. Patel is highly trained in providing safe, FDA-approved Botox® injections for headache and facial pain relief. If you need chronic headache and migraine pain relief, Infinite Smiles can help.

We look forward to seeing you!
