What is Migraine Treatment?

Migraine headache is a common, debilitating condition which involves regular, very severe headache. Many dental issues are related to migraine headaches and treating these issues can result in improvement in frequency and severity of migraine headaches. Many dental conditions, including disorders relating to the jaw joint (TMJ disorder), toothache, and jaw and sinus pain, can contribute to headaches. Recognizing dental causes of migraine and treating the issues can greatly improve symptoms in those who suffer from migraines.

Why might Migraine Treatment be needed?

If you are experiencing regular migraine headaches it can take a toll on your daily life and ability to function. Doctors can prescribe medications and provide other treatments, but if the pain is related to or made worse by a dental condition, then a dentist will need to treat underlying issues. This can help you reduce the number and frequency of headaches you are getting, vastly improving your quality of life.

Who is a candidate for Migraine Treatment?

If you regularly experience migraine headaches and are not getting relief from other treatments provided by your doctor, then seeking dental care to treat your migraines can be incredibly beneficial. We can address issues with the jaw, teeth, sinuses, and more which can cause or worsen your headaches. For some, their migraines may be completely relieved following dental treatment if that issue was the main source of pain.

What is involved in Migraine Treatment?

Treatment for migraine will differ depending on the individual. For some, TMJ disfunction may be the primary cause of their headaches, so treatment to reduce pain and improve function of the jaw will be provided. For others, pain in other parts of the mouth and jaw may be contributing and will be treated accordingly to provide headache relief. Depending on the underlying problem, we may provide dental appliances to wear at night, reducing symptoms of TMJ and clenching. If the source of the pain is not the jaw, other treatments may be provided to remedy those issues

This was my first time seeing Dr. Galligan - was super appreciative that she took care of the issue with my filling on the same day it was discovered even though it was the end of the day. I know she didn't have to do that. Super happy with this dentist.
