Frequent headaches can have many causes. One that many people overlook is teeth grinding.

If this is a problem for you, it can contribute to the frequency and intensity of your headaches.
We can tackle this problem in multiple ways:
Migraines can interfere with your daily life. They can leave you sensitive to light and sound. As a result, you may find yourself avoiding time with your family and friends. Migraines can make it difficult to focus on tasks for work as well.
If you notice that you often wake up with a headache, that could be a clue that your problem is related to teeth grinding. Other symptoms of grinding may include:

Great dentist and staff. Very glad I chose to come here for my dental visit. Definitely recommend to friends and family!
This was my first visit at a new dentist office and I was nervous to get my checkup. I enjoyed my hygienist Carmen, the cleaning it was very thorough and the staff was very professional. I will definitely be back for my 6 month visit!
Dr. LaPera had been my dentist for 15 years. He is extremely professional and has a wonderful pleasant manner. I recommended him to a friend from NYC and she now goes regularly. I am fortunate to have found him when I moved from NY.
Excellent dental practice. I have been a patient for 20 years. The doctors and staff are professional, on time and caring. Great communication and they always put the patient’s needs first. I have recommended Summit Dental to other friends who have also been highly satisfied. My teeth love these guys.
This is the best dentist I have been to. The place is very clean they have been sanitizing everything down before covid-19 came into existence. The doctor is the best dentist i know of he is very kind, patient, and gentle. His work is perfect.
I would highly recommend this dental practice for all dental care. Dr. Le Pera is a true perfectionist and his care for the patients is his main priority. My experience is my main focus to this review. The staff is very courteous and knowledgeable. Carmen, the Hygienist, is also a wonderful asset to the practice. She is thorough with her cleanings and care for her patients. Definitely an A+
Loved my hygienist Carmen. She gave me lots of helpful tips and didn’t use electric tools to clean. I loved this because I have a lot of sensitivity and the electric tools exacerbates my symptoms. Which means she listened to my worries and honored them. Dr. Le Pera is awesome as always and keeps me well informed.
Really the best dentist I could ever ask for. I know they are a trusted source and Dr. L is truly one of a kind. Someone who genuinely cares about his clients- it always feels like family. I do all my work here- what I love is that if Dr. L is super honest – and if he knows of someone better suited for a particular procedure he will tell me transparently and recommend the best. No dentist can beat him. He doesn’t look to do more work than needed and always takes a conservative approach to help retain your natural teeth as much as possible. (Important to me since I’ve broken my 3 front teeth in half due to a fall and he’s done brilliant veneers). The receptionist and support staff are lovely as well. And if you need a cleaning ask for Carmen – she’s fantastic.
From the warm welcome upon arrival, to the thorough cleaning by Carmen the Hygienist, to the professional and gentle exam by Dr Le Pera, my experience was terrific. I’ll be back!
Treatment for migraine headaches will depend on the cause of the headaches. If your headaches are due to allergies, a medical doctor such as an allergist may recommend medication. If they are due to TMJ issues, a dentist is actually the best person to see. Our dentists are trained in TMJ treatment to resolve chronic headaches. Come in for a free consultation to find out if this is the source of your pain.
There are many causes of headaches, from simple reasons like lack of sleep to more serious issues like neurological problems. If your headaches are unexplained and are accompanied by symptoms like jaw pain and tenderness, then TMJ problems may be the culprit. Jaw pain from an imbalanced TMJ or even teeth grinding can travel upward and create this pain. We have many solutions to help.
Our most common migraine and headache treatment is an oral appliance. If your pain is caused by your jaw or teeth grinding, we can create an appliance that will slightly reposition your jaw to prevent pain and grinding. If your headaches are caused by a bad bite, we may recommend orthodontics or restorations to improve it and as a result, reduce or eliminate your related headaches.
