Worcester Headache Treatment

Worcester dentist gets to the source of headache problems with effective treatment

Posted By

Worcester headache treatment begins

Headaches are a common nervous system disorder. Almost everyone has a headache at some point in their lives. For about 15 percent of the adult population, the condition is severe, and chronic for 18 percent. Women are twice as prone to headaches as men are. If you live with this type of pain, relief could begin with a visit to Dr. Stanley Levenson in Worcester, MA for headache treatment.


What happens in your head

A headache feels like a pain in the brain. Yet pain comes from special receptors in nerve endings. The brain does not have these pain receptors. Rather, one of the brain’s jobs is to tell you when other parts of your body are hurting.


So, what causes the throb, ache, or pressure in your head? Muscles, blood vessels, and nerves all over your neck and head . . . including your mouth! When nerves are over-stimulated, or something puts pressure on them, they send a flood of messages to the brain saying that there is a problem. The resulting headache is a natural defense mechanism to help you identify and eliminate a potential threat to the body.


Nerves may react as blood vessels or swell or constrict. This can be triggered by even a small imbalance in the musculoskeletal system of the head and neck, or other oral problem. Dental issues linked to headaches and migraines include:

  • Tooth decay.
  • Oral infection.
  • Poor sleep quality.
  • TMJ disorders.
  • Bruxism - nighttime clenching and grinding.
  • Ill-fitting dental restorations or dentures.
  • Broken or missing teeth.
  • Crooked teeth.
  • Malocclusion - misalignment in the relationship of upper and lower jaws.

The trigeminal nerve cluster originates at each temple with sensory organs extending to the jaw joints, ears, and all over the face and head. When dental problems affect the trigeminal nerve, referred pain may be far-reaching.

Worcester headache treatment begins in the dental chair

In Dr. Levenson’s care, headache treatment starts with a comprehensive examination of your teeth, mouth, and bite. You can expect the doctor to ask questions about your lifestyle, as well as the symptoms and frequency of headaches you experience. He is not prying - this discussion provides vital insight to unravel underlying causes of your discomfort. Using advanced diagnostic technologies, he develops a clear picture of your oral condition as it relates to headaches and imbalances affecting your comfort from head to toe.


Dr. Levenson develops a treatment plan customized to your condition. He starts with the least invasive technique, progressing through options until you find relief. Here are some of the procedures he may recommend:

headache treatment begins in the dental chair
  • Urgent dental treatment - Addressing trauma, deep cavities, and gum disease is a priority in restoring your oral condition.
  • Dental repairs - Teeth or old dental work showing wear or damage should be dealt with promptly. Dentures may be re-lined or replaced to improve fit.
  • Home therapy - Soothing cool and warm compresses, anti-inflammatory medications, and gentle mouth exercises to ease discomfort.
  • Lifestyle adjustments - Simple modifications to your daily routine - chair height, phone posture, computer usage, gum chewing - can make a big difference.
  • Stress management - A tremendous amount of tension is harbored in our jaws. The doctor will talk with you about drug-free techniques such as exercise, yoga, and meditation help to dissipate stress naturally.
  • Bite adjustment - Precise alterations in tooth height and shape can bring the bite into better alignment, relieving strain on temporomandibular joints. This may also involve replacing missing teeth with dental implants or bridges.
  • Orthodontics - Straight teeth look great and contribute dramatically to oral comfort.
  • Night guard - Wear this custom-fit mouthguard at night to give jaw joints a rest and cushion bruxism force.
  • Oral appliance therapy - Chronic headaches (especially in the morning) are a common side effect of obstructive sleep apnea. A discreet oral appliance, worn at night, can help you get the rest you need to wake feeling refreshed.

Treatment for headaches doesn’t have to mean brain-dulling pain medications. Once you realize that most headaches originate in the mouth, it makes great sense to address the source of the pain instead of just masking symptoms. Dr. Levenson can help, with compassionate dental care. Call Levenson Smile at (855) 849-8255 to schedule an 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!
