With the help of our professional team, Dr. Ryan Shepherd can determine the cause behind your tension and help relieve your discomfort right here at our Albuquerque, NM dentist office.
While attending the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Shepherd completed extensive research on TMJ disorder and other medical conditions related to headaches and migraines, so you can rest assured he can help you!
Your Migraine And Headache Solutions Options
Because every case and every patient is unique, Dr. Shepherd will first discuss your issues with you before recommending particular treatments. We offer two main treatment methods for treating migraines and headaches. Depending on your situation, we may even recommend combining them.
Custom mouthguards shift your jaw to prevent teeth grinding, clenching, and other involuntary oral behaviors that result in facial, neck, and back tension. Because your mouthguard will be made just for you, it will fit great!
Another simple but effective way of treating headaches and migraines is through massage therapy. Dr. Shepherd used to be a massage therapist, so he will quickly find your trigger points and teach you how to treat your pain yourself!
