The exact cause of migraines is an active area of research, and nobody knows precisely how this painful condition develops. But we do know that jaw alignment may play a role.
Patients who live with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) often find that their migraine headaches reduce in severity and frequency when Dr. Frank treats the underlying jaw misalignment issue that may be causing the problem.
Some of the migraine treatments that Dr. Frank has successfully used with his patients include:
- Night guard therapy
- Full-time removable neuromuscular orthotic devices
- All-day fixed orthotic devices
- Orthodontic and restorative dental treatments
- DNA (daytime-nighttime appliance) expansion orthodontic therapy
During your initial migraine consultation, Dr. Frank will evaluate your condition and recommend the treatment that is best for you.
