What is Trigeminal Neuralgia
Trigeminal neuralgia is the pain which stems from this nerve. Many doctors treat this condition with medication. The latest and most effective treatment technique, however, can be provided by a well-trained dentist. This treatment does not involve medication or surgery.
The trigeminal nerve carries sensation from the face to the brain. Trigeminal neuralgia is most common in women over the age of 50. Symptoms range from mild to severe facial pain, and the pain is often triggered by chewing, speaking, or brushing the teeth.
As trigeminal neuralgia is very painful, proper treatment is essential in order to improve the quality of life. In many instances, the cause stems from a misaligned bite. Dr. Lim treats this by correcting the bite to take pressure off the nerve.
