Migraine and Headache Solutions
If you have migraines or headaches often it's related to how your bite is, or how you're clenching or grinding your teeth, or it's at least a contributing factor. We actually can design and create a bite guard for a patient that can alleviate a lot of migraine symptoms, headache symptoms. Often, that medically, medications and injections, and things that they've experienced in the past are unable to achieve. If you have migraines we'd love to take a look and see how we can help.
Our own Dr. Juarez is so dedicated to providing all the services our patients need that she has undergone extensive continuing education in how to treat TMJ disorder, teeth grinding, and other potential causes of migraines and headaches. Check out Sweet Dreams Sleep Solutions to learn more!
Potential Causes Of Migraines And Headaches
The occasional headache or migraine probably isn’t anything to worry about, but if you are experiencing frequent pain, the cause may be something more serious. Here are some common causes of headaches and migraines:
- Stress or anxiety
- Teeth grinding and other dental problems
- Excessive time spent looking at computer or phone screens
- Too much or not enough sleep
Headaches can also be a symptom of TMJ disorder or sleep apnea, but for a proper diagnosis, you should see our Houston, TX dentist.

If your migraines or headaches are less severe, you may be able to control them and relieve pain with over-the-counter pain medications. You can also try:
