If you suffer from migraines, our caring dentist may recommend a Sphenopalatine Ganglion block, or SPG block, to treat your migraine headache and provide relief. This simple and comfortable treatment works to provide immediate relief so that you can improve your quality of life and wellbeing. Call us today at 610-709-6774 to learn more about SPG blocks in Whitehall, Pennsylvania, and schedule your consultation.
The Sphenopalatine Ganglion is a cluster of nerves at the back of the nose. By simply and painlessly applying an anesthetic to that cluster we can provide immediate relief for migraine headaches. The SPG block directly affects the trigeminal central sensory nucleus in the brain, which is the key to migraines.
SPG blocks are not an injection. Instead, the anesthetic is applied using a soft, flexible rubber catheter tube, which is inserted into the nostril. The process only takes a few minutes, and the effects of the SPG block can last for up to three months to give you long, pain-free periods.
We invite you to call our office to schedule your appointment with our dentist and find out more about the benefits of SPG blocks. We are committed to helping you improve your health and quality of life.
