Why do some people suffer from severe headaches and what can be done to help resolve it?
Headaches are often a reflection of stress and clenching and grinding in your sleep. If you clench all night or grind all night, this causes lactic acid build up in the muscles which causes pain, especially in your shoulder muscles, jaw and temple.
The best solution is to wear a night guard that protects your opposing teeth from coming into direct contact and minimises damaging forces into the crystalline structure of your teeth. They are made specifically to fit your mouth and are customised to encourage protective behaviour that breaks the cycle of grinding and clenching, and hence stops the build up of lactic acid in the neck, temple and shoulder muscles.
