Bruxism Headaches: A Pain in the Neck and Jaw Too

Approximately 10% of all adults suffer from bruxism, a seemingly minor affliction that can have major health consequences. Bruxism is the medical term for clenching and grinding one's teeth. It can cause a variety of problems, not least of which is bruxism headaches.

If you suffer from bruxism headaches, one of the most common recommendations from dentists and doctors is to wear a nightguard. Oral solutions like CustMbite's Nightguard and Hard Surface Nightguard are a high-quality, reliable, and comfortable way to address the source of your bruxism headaches.

How Are Headaches and Bruxism Related?

The effects of bruxism aren't limited to the teeth. Bruxism exhausts the entire body due to the constant use of muscles, joints, and tendons. This type of tension often manifests itself as a dull, persistent headache that you just can't shake.

Your headaches originate from the temporomandibular joint, a complex joint that controls the movement of your jaw so you can speak, eat, yawn, and breathe. This joint is connected to powerful muscles that help to control the jaw.

If you have bruxism, the clenching and grinding effects the TMJ, sending pain from the jaw to the head and the neck — and sometimes further. Those prone to migraines may have a bruxism headache that turns into a migraine.

Whatever your situation may be, there's a simple way to address the root of the problem. A nightguard is one of the most effective ways to treat bruxism. By treating bruxism, you can reduce the pressure on your teeth, jaw, head, and neck which can lead to headaches.

A Simple, Effective Bruxism Headache Treatment

A nightguard is one of the top solutions recommended by dentists, but it can be hard to find the right guard to address your bruxism headaches — many over-the-counter nightguards are too bulky and uncomfortable. At CustMbite, we knew there had to be a better solution.

We spent years working with dental professionals to develop the material that is the heart of the CustMbite Nightguard and Hard Surface Nightguard. With Vistamaxx, our top priorities were to:

  • Make it comfortable.

Vistamaxx ensures the ultimate in comfort. It's extremely thin, yet still incredibly effective. The thin, flexible material makes it easy to wear night after night without discomfort.

  • Make it durable.

Both the Nightguard and Hard Surface Nightguard are nearly impossible to grind through. And when it comes to the Hard Surface Nightguard, we made sure that it can stand up to even the most intense of grinding.

  • Make it easy to customize.

Vistamaxx makes molding (and, when necessary, remolding) your nightguard easy as pie. All you need is a microwave, a paper towel, and a bowl of water to mold your mouthguard. Vistamaxx forms snugly to your teeth, ensuring a dentist-quality fit.

  • Make it germ-free.

One of the most convenient features of Vistamaxx is its easy-to-clean surface. The surface resists absorption of saliva and bacteria, so all you need to do is hit it with our All Natural Oral Appliance Cleaner or toss it in the dishwasher. Simple and sanitary!
