Young man working on computer and having headache

Dentist in Worcester, MA can provide relief for different types of headaches

Posted By

Young lady having headache Headaches are a debilitating condition that affect millions of people in the United States each year, and almost everyone has at least one headache from time to time that negatively affects their productivity, mood, and comfort. There are several different types of headaches, and treatment needs vary, depending on the type. Some types of headaches have a dental cause, and your dentist can help you treat the problem to stop the pain. Dr. Stanley Levenson from Levenson Smile in Worcester, MA can evaluate your headache issues and work with you to develop an effective treatment plan so you can get back to your normal, pain-free life.

Tension headaches

Tension headaches are the most common type of headache in adults, with up to 80 percent of adults in the United States getting one at some point. Also called “stress headaches,” they can feel like pressure or a dull pain in your head or like a clamp is being squeezed around your skull. They can last anywhere between 30 minutes and a few days.

Migraine headaches

Migraines are very common – they are the third most prevalent condition worldwide and approximately one quarter of the households in the USA include a family member who gets migraines. The cause of migraines is neurological in nature, and the symptoms can vary, depending on the person. Typically, a person experiences throbbing head pain on one side of the head, but both sides can be affected. Other symptoms can be present with or without head pain, such as nausea or vomiting, dizziness, visual disturbances, tingling or numbness, and sensitivity to light or sound.

Sinus headaches

When your sinuses swell and fill will mucus due to inflammation or infection, they can cause a sinus headache. Sinuses are the spaces inside your cheekbones, forehead, and behind your nose and can become blocked due to allergies, upper respiratory infections, and other illnesses. A sinus headache can feel like a migraine or tension headache, but if you have a sinus infection, you’ll likely also have a fever. You may also feel a sense of fullness in your ears or have a runny nose or swollen face.

Cluster headaches

This type of headache can be excruciating for its sufferers. Cluster headaches are a series of short, but very painful headaches that a person gets every day for weeks and sometimes up to months at a time. Typically, cluster headaches happen for a person at the same time of year every year, such as in the fall, so they can sometimes be confused with seasonal allergies or stress.

Other types of headaches

There are over 150 types of headaches, but other common types of headaches that people experience include the following:
  • Post-traumatic headaches: caused by trauma or concussion and typically develop within 7 days of head trauma
  • Exercise headaches: can occur during certain types of exercise for some people
  • Hormone headaches: caused by increases or decreases in certain hormones, such as estrogen or progesterone
  • Caffeine headaches: can occur due to withdrawal from caffeine if you skip your daily cup of coffee, tea, or soda
  • Rebound headaches: can happen when you take over-the-counter pain relievers regularly and then stop taking them

Dental treatment for headache pain

Senior male dentist in dental office talking with female patient and preparing for treatment Several dental issues can cause recurring headaches. If your jaw is incorrectly aligned and you cannot bite properly, it can become tense and sore over time. This can lead to headaches or migraines and cause facial, shoulder, and neck tension and soreness. Invisalign orthodontic treatment to solve bite issues and straighten your teeth can help eliminate these headaches.

Sleep apnea, or the obstruction of your airway while you sleep, can also contribute to headaches. This nighttime breathing disorder can cause you to get poor quality sleep and deprive your brain of oxygen, which leads to headaches. Your dentist can fit you with an oral appliance to keep your airway open while you sleep, which will improve your quality of sleep, reduce snoring, and reduce headaches due to sleep apnea.

Grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw, called bruxism, can also cause headaches, and this issue can easily be corrected with a custom fitted night guard. Similarly, dentures that are too thick can cause soreness not only in your jaw, but in the muscles of your face and temples. Your dentist can reduce the thickness of your dentures to alleviate your pain and reduce strain on your teeth and jaw.

Get to the root of your headaches and stop living with pain by scheduling an evaluation with Dr. Stanley Levenson at Levenson Smile in Worcester, MA. Call (508) 753-3105 today to schedule your appointment!

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!

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.
