The benefits of mouth guards for headaches

  • Help to reduce the intensity of headaches: Custom made mouth guards help to reduce the intensity of tension headaches and migraine headaches by relaxing the jaw muscles and relieving pressure on them.
  • Reduce teeth grinding: Teeth grinding can be a major cause of tension headaches and migraines, so using a custom made mouth guard helps to keep your teeth in a neutral position and reduce grinding.
  • Reduce the risk of dental damage: Grinding your teeth can lead to long term dental problems, such as wearing of tooth enamel, chipped or cracked teeth, and misalignment of the jaw. Wearing a custom made mouth guard can help protect your teeth from these risks.
  • Prevents clenching of the jaw: When we are under stress or anxious, we can unconsciously clench our jaws. This can lead to tension headaches and migraines. A custom made mouth guard helps to prevent this from happening by providing a cushion between your teeth.

How does jaw clenching cause headaches?

One of the most successful treatment options for bruxism and headaches is the Sleep Clench Inhibitor [Sci]. This is a bespoke mouthguard appliance made of a durable plastic that sits over the lower front teeth preventing contact of the back teeth, which in turn inhibits the ability to clench or grind the teeth.

Jaw Clenching Treatment Summary

A dentist or qualified dental technician will take a mould of your teeth to create a mouth guard that fits perfectly.
The dentist or dental technician then trims and adjusts the mouth guard for comfort and fit before giving it back to you.
Lastly, your dentist will discuss the wear routine for the custom made mouth guard which may include using the appliance during sleeping to help reduce the symptoms of bruxism.

Additionally, you can consider using a custom made mouth guard at night to provide protection for your teeth while sleeping and reduce the risk of further jaw clenching. Practising relaxation techniques such as meditation or yoga can also help to reduce stress levels and prevent future episodes of jaw clenching.
Yes, there are several things you can do to help reduce or stop jaw clenching.
