Types of headaches and solutions A headache can ruin your day. Chronic pain wears down your immune system, zaps your energy, and eventually shows on your face as lines and wrinkles. Countless Americans self-medicate, dulling the discomfort somewhat with over the counter analgesics. For those under the care of a physician, treatment often consists of strong pain medications with the risk of serious side effects. Dr. Stanley Levenson, suggests a different approach for his patients in the Worcester area. He treats the underlying causes of headaches with drug-free dental treatments.

Types of headaches & solutions

"Headache" is pain in any region of the head - top, back, forehead, cheeks, mouth, jaw, ears, or neck. A severe headache may trigger other symptoms such as vomiting, stiff neck or jaw, confusion, or slurred speech, ear noises, or vision impairment. Most people have some form of a headache at some point in their lives, although small children may not yet have the cognitive skills to describe it that way.

While each headache is unique, medical researchers define these primary types:
  • Tension - This type doesn’t throb, but causes a dull ache over most of the head. You may also experience scalp or forehead sensitivity, and tight shoulder muscles. Anyone who has stress (emotional or physical) can get tension headaches. Addressing the source of stress is key to finding relief.
  • Cluster - Acute, piercing pain, often on one side or around one eye indicates a cluster headache. Other symptoms include nasal congestion, eye tearing, flushing, sweating, and sometimes redness or swelling on the affected side of the face. They last up to several hours, and usually occur in a series, as the name implies. You may get cluster headaches daily for several months, then be symptom free for a while. Improvement in breathing may reduce occurrences.
  • Migraines - The intense, deep throbbing of a migraine can be quite debilitating and last for several days. This type of pain is often on one side. Migraines commonly trigger light and sound sensitivity, nausea, and vomiting. Some people experience aura (visual disturbance such as flashing or shimmering light, jagged lines, blind spots, or stars) before the onset of a migraine. Environmental factors such as dehydration, certain foods, and sleep deprivation can be triggers.
  • Sinus and allergy - Cluster headaches and migraines are frequently misdiagnosed as sinus and allergy headaches. True sinus and allergy headaches are the result of pressure in sinus and nasal passages caused by inflammation and build-up of mucous.
  • Hormone - Menstruation, pregnancy, birth control pills, and menopause cause hormonal fluctuations that trigger headaches, usually when estrogen and progesterone levels are low.
  • Caffeine - Coffee is a favorite beverage in the United States, but it affects blood flow to the brain. Too much of this stimulant can cause a headache, as can the “crash” that follows withdrawal.
  • Rebound - Overuse of medications for headaches can actually cause more! You may have an intensely painful, migraine-like headache or dull, tension-type pain when your system is deprived of analgesics.

Headache treatments in Worcester

Headache treatments in Worcester You have two trigeminal nerves in your face. They start slightly above and in front of the ears, branching to the eyes and upper and lower jaws. This nerve bundle carries sensations from your face to the brain, and controls motor functions of the mouth. It is a major factor in headaches, and your dental condition has a big affect on health of trigeminal nerves.

Bruxism (nighttime clenching and grinding) irritates nerves, as does malocclusion - poor bite. Dr. Levenson applies advanced diagnostic techniques and years of clinical experience to identify these underlying issues at the root of headaches. Correction may be as simple as wearing a night guard, an oral appliance that balances the bite and relieves strain on the jaw joint. Old, worn, or ill-fitting dental restoration (fillings, crowns, bridges, or dentures) may need adjustment or replacement. In some cases, Invisalign orthodontics brings long-term relief, as well as a more attractive smile.

Nighttime breathing issues that contribute to headaches can also be addressed with a dental approach. Custom-fitted oral appliance therapy keeps the airway clear during sleep, dramatically reducing or resolving obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. It may also improve breathing restrictions from allergies and sinus congestion.

It is hard to keep a smile on your face when your head hurts. Unforgettable smiles start with a call to Levenson Smile in Worcester (855) 849-8255 for effective treatments for headaches.

Well, I've got to tell you. I can't recommend highly enough Dr. Stanley Levenson. There's this mouth piece... it's great! I snore. . I used to snore, like a bear! It would leave me on the couch many, many nights. If I wasn't on the couch, I was getting an elbow in the ribs. I have sleep apnea and, using this device, I am well rested now!

Stanley is no doubt the best dentist I have ever had, He and his staff have been wonderful to me since the day we met, when I came in for an emergency with my wisdom teeth. He came in on a Sunday to look at my teeth and helped me find help when I needed it most. I have been coming here ever since! I love having my teeth cleaned, the girls are so gentle and caring and I even got my Invisalign through Stan. I always have a great experience and would never go anywhere else! Thanks to everyone at Levensonsmile for treating me like family. Your all wonderful!!

After years of severe bruxism I took the plunge and had no prep veneers done! I can't say enough about the quality of his work! I did my homework and some other consults and am so happy with my choice in Dr Levenson and his team! Friends and family are amazed at how natural they look which was my #1 request....no Chiclet gum smile for me thank you. He listened to my desires for my smile (while correcting some alignment and grinding issues) and was never pressured into doing more than I wanted. It was pain free, fast (a few couple hour appts) and done! They haven't hesitated to get me back in as I panicked over the new feeling and adjustment to the new teeth....that speaks volumes! Thanks Dr. Levenson See you in Chicago!

I just started going to Dr Levenson, and it has been many many years since I was at the dentist. Well, let me tell you, it has been nothing but a pleasant experience all the way around. Right from the moment you walk into the reception area, you are greeted by professional and friendly staff they genuinely care that you are seen quickly and are comfortable and don't need anything. Throughout any procedure I was constantly asked if I was comfortable or in any pain (I wasn't). And, Dr Levenson had to refer me out at first for a root canal, and he went out of his way to make sure I was matched up with a dentist that would suit me! The best!

Dr. Levenson and his staff are great and very friendly - I went in for a consultation for 6-month smiles because I was getting married and wanted to straighten my front teeth due to the crowding. I went for my first appointment in December, he explained everything to me and gave me my options. I decided to go with the 6-month smiles and got the braces put on before Christmas. They came off in June and I got married 4th of July weekend. Dr. Levenson did an amazing job. The results were incredible, especially since I was afraid the bottom teeth weren't going to be done in time. The crowding was pretty bad - definitely gave him a challenge but he worked his magic and made it happen. Kara was one of the assistants who worked with me and she was truly wonderful, an absolute sweetheart. Love her! Most recently, my husband did a pretty good job chipping one of his front teeth and Dr. Levenson was able to get him in and fix it quickly. Highly recommended dentist!

Dr. Levenson is a Picasso of dentistry; he works outstanding magic with his up to date ways of cosmetic dentistry. He has a great love for his artistry, and it shows with his gentle ways with his patients. Dr. Levenson has a gentle soul, and wants the best for every patient that walks through his door. For me, Dr. Levenson is my rock star dentist. and I love him and the staff for all that you have done for me. You gave me some life back, and I cannot thank you all enough.
