Ten (10) Year Headache History
This 28 year old, female presented to my office with complaints of
migraines for over ten years. She had seen numerous area physicians for
help. She had received countless catscans and MRIs. She had tried
various medications. Nothing helped.
Proper Diagnosis via Transcranial Xray
Our diagnosis, made through transcranial x-rays, was quite simple.
Patient suffered from an overbite situation as a result of poorly
performed orthodontics at a younger age.
Her jaw joints were compressed due to the fact that her lower jaw was
being "squeezed" too far into the skull bone. Although she exhibited no
signs of joint or jaw dysfunction our analysis concluded a severe
problem with her jaw function.
Realigning Jaw Relationship
Split vertical orthodontics was performed to bring about a new jaw to jaw relationship and help to decompress the joints.
In the process, all migraines resolved and the patient returned to a normal life.
TMJ Treatment Outcome
In the patient's words:
visited so many other doctors, that I can't believe it's a dentist who
cured my problem. I had forgotten what it's like to live without head
pain. I also got the straight teeth that my old orthodontist was never
able to do for me."
