When deciding on whether to perform an extraction the dentist is usually referring to impacted wisdom teeth. This can lead to discomfort, inflammation, infection, and even decay caused by the tooth growing into the mouth and pushing against other teeth. In cases like this, the dentist will most likely extract the wisdom teeth. 

 

But when it comes to extracting other teeth in the mouth, here at Dentistry by Isaac Gabay, we will do everything we can to save the tooth before exploring extraction. If the tooth has been traumatized, is badly decaying, or there is excessive bone loss around the tooth due to periodontal disease and the tooth is very loose the dentist will consider extraction to preserve the health of the teeth surrounding it, as well as your entire mouth.

If you suffer from tension or migraine headaches, Dentistry By Isaac Gabay may have a way to help reduce the frequency and intensity of your headaches: Stabilization splints. Appropriate for headache sufferers – as well as those who may be experiencing tooth wear, jaw muscle pain, or those who simply want to protect their mouth’s surfaces during a time of healing – a properly-fitted stabilization splint is smaller and more comfortable than a traditional bite guard. Stabilization splints can prevent and/or reduce the intensity of jaw clenching while you sleep, which can minimize headaches and create a variety of other benefits:

1. Reduces teeth grinding and abnormal muscle contractions by nearly 70%.

2. Doesn’t trigger your gag reflex, meaning you’re more likely to wear it and benefit from it.

3. Costs less and has fewer side effects than prescription drugs.

4. Reduces the need for tooth repair due to jaw clenching and teeth grinding in your sleep.

Are stabilization splints the answer to your headache nightmares? Talk to Dentistry By Isaac Gabay to see if stabilization splints can help you live a happier, more pain-free life.

What is the Migraine Prevention Procedure Like?

Migraines are a big problem for anyone dealing with them. Some of the most severe migraine headaches often arise out of a dental-related issue, and it needs the help of a professional dentist. Advil and Tylenol, unfortunately, just don’t do the job in some cases!


Our procedure first begins with a general checkup of the teeth and oral cavity to make sure there are no cases of overbite, underbite, or any other misalignment of the jaws. This is because an underlying root cause of migraines is a misalignment of teeth and jaws. This is also called malocclusion. Malocclusion often leads to pain due to Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) or TMJ (Temporomandibular joint) disorders.


Afterward, we determine the best way to get a custom-designed stabilization splint for your jaws that will ensure your teeth remain stable and avoid grinding at night. It also drastically reduces any abnormal muscle contractions. These stabilization splints are a great alternative to bite guards for example. Unlike bite guards, stabilization splints keep your teeth held firmly together to prevent even slight movements.


After we attach the splint, we would observe how they are doing over a period of time and adjust, or redo them completely if needed.

How are Migraines and Dental Health Connected?

For anyone with malocclusion, it is highly recommended to see your local dentist and find possible ways to fix the misalignment or other disorders with your teeth and jaw structure.


In some cases, however, migraines could be a sign of poor dental hygiene habits or eating certain unhealthy foods. (those with nitrites in them, or alcohol) Regardless of the cause, it is important not to delay in finding out the root cause of your migraines.

  • Evade intense activity for a week after the surgery

  • Make sure to get enough rest for the first few days after the extraction
