The Back of Your Nose and Migraines


What if I told you that a cluster of nerves at the back of the nose might hold the key to severe headache relief? Would you be excited? Hesitant? In disbelief?

The Sphenopalatine Ganglion

A cluster of nerves exists at the back of the nose that is collectively known as the Sphenopalatine Ganglion. This nerve cluster works in coordination with the trigeminal central sensory nucleus in the brain, a location that has been identified as a point of interest in migraines. While the cause of migraines remains under some level of dispute, Dr. Buck has provided real relief to migraine patients using a Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block (or SPG block).

SPG Block for Migraines

Migraine treatment using an SPG block is a noninvasive procedure in which a flexible rubber catheter tube is gently inserted into the nostril. From here, the catheter releases an anesthetic to the Sphenopalatine ganglion targeting the migraine producing location in the brain.

  • An SPG block treatment is easy and noninvasive
  • The treatment provides nearly immediate results that patients can feel in just a few minutes
  • Relief lasts for days, weeks, sometimes even months
  • If needed, multiple treatments can be provided, each with increasing periods of relief

Who Is Affected?

According to The Migraine Institute, about 35 million Americans suffer from migraine headaches. As any migraine sufferer knows, these episodes can be absolutely debilitating. Migraine headaches are often accompanied by other ailments such as:

  • Disturbances in vision
  • Tremendous pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

Migraines wield the potential to ruin your day, week, or life. These all-powerful headaches leave lives in shambles for periods at a time with little hope for relief. What are you left with when something as trivial as a headache controls your life?

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.

WOW! A 54% decrease in forward head posture; 164% increase in the antero-posterior size of the airway; 176% increase in the lateral size of the airway all from epigenetically centered jaw development orthopedics. This is the future of orthodontics!​
