Did you know that 80% of all headaches are related to the way your jaws bite together and when they bite together?  Jaw-related headaches affect at least twice as many women as men.  Causes: 

STRESS can lead to teeth grinding or jaw clenching

MISALIGNMENT of teeth can cause uneven bite pressure

MUSCLE STRAIN can overtax jaw muscles & negatively affect the mechanics of biting & chewing

TRAUMA such as a heavy blow to the jaw, head or neck can make optimal function impossible

We can help you feel less pain and increase comfort by providing solutions to jaw-related headaches.

REDUCE the pressure on your gums & ligaments due to grinding & clenching while sleeping
