The statistics on migraine headaches, one of the world’s most misunderstood illnesses, are staggering. Did you know that 36,000,000 men, women, and children are migraine sufferers and that 14,000,000 of those suffer from chronic headaches every day?
Did you also know that migraines run in families? If a mother or father suffers from migraines, there’s a 40% chance that their children will suffer as well. If both parents get migraines, the probability of a child suffering from migraines in that family jumps to 90%!
During childhood, boys are affected by migraines more than girls, but during the teen years when estrogen influence begins in young girls, the risk of migraine and its severity rises in females, with approximately 27 million women migraine sufferers in the US, a three to one female to male ratio.
Migraine ranks in the top 20 of the world’s most disabling medical illnesses, and in a fast paced workplace where our value is often based on our productivity, more than 90% of sufferers are unable to work or function normally during their migraine, which can last anywhere from 4 to 72 hours. The economic impact of migraine is enormous. American employers lose more than $13 billion each year as a result of 113 million lost work days due to migraine.
Sadly, despite the prevalence and terrible impact of migraine headaches, it remains one of the most misdiagnosed and undertreated illnesses. In fact, only 4% of migraine sufferers seek out the help of pain or headache specialists. A basic understanding of the architecture of the head can help clarify why headache pain specialists like Dr. Elliot and Dr. Nick are uniquely placed to offer life-changing relief from migraines.
The trigeminal nerve channel is the pathway through which the brain, sinuses, and jaw deliver sensory information. It’s also the signaling pathway for pain from dental surgery, periodontal discomfort, and pain linked to trigeminal neuralgia and and additional neuropathic and inflammatory problems, including migraine.
Teeth clenchers and teeth grinders subject their teeth and jaws to severe pressure, particularly at night, triggering intense stimulation of the trigeminal nerve, which in turn, causes frequent and often debilitating headaches.
Dr. Elliot and Dr. Nick are headache dentists and pain specialists who can fit you with the only non-drug, non-surgical method of migraine prevention approved by the FDA, the NTI-tss.
Used by more than a half million satisfied customers worldwide, the NTI-tss is a tiny custom-fitted device that snaps into place and sits painlessly on either the upper or lower front teeth. People who suffer from morning headaches wear the NTI-tss while they sleep, preventing any contact between the back teeth, which is known to be a trigger for migraines.
There’s also a more discreet version for daytime use. The NTI-tss is so effective that in clinical trials, 82% of migraine sufferers reported nearly an 80% reduction in migraine headache episodes within the first eight weeks of use. The NTI-tss can also help temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ or TMD) sufferers.
Prices for the NTI-tss device can range from $175 to $1200 to achieve a quality of life and level of relief that can be considered priceless. Long Island Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry can help you find an affordable way to give you the relief you need from your headache suffering.
Call Dr. Elliot and Dr. Nick today at 631-744-5700 for a consultation if you’re suffering from migraines or morning headaches. It is not unusual for some patients to report immediate overnight relief, while others experience much wanted help in one to several weeks.
