As a general rule of thumb, your teeth should not be touching except when you are speaking or eating. If they are touching while you are performing any work, it means that you are clenching. You often clench your teeth while sleeping, and thus are unaware of it.
We diagnose night time teeth clenching on the scale of 0-10 where 10 indicates worst pain whereas 0 means no pain at all and ask this question: In a week how many days you wake up with a zero pain?
The best way to protect your teeth from nighttime grinding is by wearing a night guard. The specific type of guard depends on your individual needs, but the most commonly used night guards for headaches is the NTI-tss plus. It is FDA approved and is used to prevent medically diagnosed migraine pain.
The ID migraine screening test helps us determine whether your headache is classified as a migraine, or not.
If you answer “yes” to the below three questions, you likely have a migraine.
1. Has your work performance been affected by headaches in the last three months?
2. Do you feel nausea and/or vomiting during headaches?
3. Does light bother you during headaches?
Call us at (610)-810-2704 to diagnose your migraine and get treated today.
