Migraines affect 39 million men, women, and children in the United States. This means that roughly one in four households includes someone who suffers from migraines. With this prevalent neurological disease affecting so many, it’s important to know valid treatment options. Westmoreland Dental Group is one of the best migraine relief providers in the area. Here are the different types of treatment plans Dr. Westmoreland offers for migraine relief.

TMJ Migraine Therapy

Westmoreland offers two different types of treatments including migraine therapy. For those who suffer from TMJ pain, migraines, headaches, and facial pain, we have a solution. In 2011, the FDA approved Botox as a treatment alternative for chronic migraines. How it works is by injecting the Botox into the affected areas, which typically include the head or neck. The therapy works as a nerve signal blocker that relaxes the muscles and eliminates facial pain. This quick therapy only takes a few minutes, and lasts close to three months!

TMJ Laser Treatment for Migraines

The second treatment option is our TMJ laser treatment. This laser has specifically been approved to treat both jaw and dental migraine pain. The laser uses pulses of high-intensity light at certain wavelengths to treat the migraines. When applied to the correct area blood circulation increases and the muscles begin to relax. Usually, within a day, the pain will subdue and full range motion restores. Some of our patients combine both Botox and laser treatment for the best results.
