Specialists in headache management

Could your headaches be caused by dental problems?

An unbalanced bite can be the cause of your headaches! At Riverside Dental Practice in Nantwich, we offer non-invasive, drug-free solutions to an unbalanced bite pattern (occlusion). As experienced dental professionals, we are fully equipped to diagnose occlusion as the root cause of your headaches, and provide an effective solution to help with headache management, allowing you to continue your day with your headaches under control. It is always worth having your bite looked at by our team. If left unchecked, it can lead to:

  • Jaw joint pains

  • Recurring migraines (front and side of the head)

  • Broken or worn teeth

  • Recurring gum problems

  • Poor sleep

How our treatment works

In most cases, a simple bite guard can help. It helps to reduce muscle activity, allowing us to diagnose the issue. If it is occlusion, we can create a custom made device that fits over the teeth, which balances your bite and helps to prevent grinding and clenching, especially overnight.

Ask yourself:

  • Do you clench or grind your teeth during the day?

  • Have you been told that you do this during your sleep?

  • Do you get chronic headaches, neck or shoulder pain?

  • Do you often wake up still feeling tired?

  • Does your jaw hurt (along the sides of the face)?

  • Has your jaw 'popped' or clicked when opening your mouth wide?

  • Do you experience difficulty in moving or opening your jaw/mouth?

  • When you chew, do you stick to one side?

We also provide a full range of general and cosmetic dental services, including:
