It is such a good feeling to wake up in the morning with no headache and no achy face. I have now gone from suffering 3-4 headaches per week to a total of 2 in the space of 3 weeks! The device is comfortable to wear and I hardly notice it is there. Many thanks Nick and team.

Dental Health Tip

Approximately 40% of all healthy people suffer from chronic headaches. If you are one, call us to see if we can help!

Head, Neck & Shoulder Pain

One in eight people suffer from recurring headaches that are so severe they cannot carry out normal living. An estimated 80% of all headaches are caused by muscle tension. If you suffer from head, neck or shoulder pain, it could be that it stems from your bite - and if so, our Hull dentist can help.

Bite problems

Headaches and neck and shoulder pain can result from dental stress and a tension headache can occur on one or both sides of your head or it may surround your head as if a steel band were wrapped around it. The pain feels like a dull, non-throbbing ache.

How Manor Dental Health in Hull can help

Your Hull dentist, Nick Allday, will examine your teeth, your muscles, and your jaw joints to determine if dental stress is the source of your headaches. If it is, treatment will involve correcting your bite so that the muscles can function without extra strain and tension and this may involve creating a tailor-made splint for your mouth. Nick is a member of the British Dental Acupuncture Society and has received specific training in acupuncture techniques to help with jaw joint problems, facial pain, muscle spasm in the head and neck, stress headaches and migraines.
