Are isolating yourself in dark rooms or popping handfuls of aspirin your ideas of headache relief? An increasingly popular dental treatment was presented at the 2nd European Headache and Migraine Trust International Congress meeting in Nice, France. Neurologist, Dr. Andrew Blumenfeld presented a poster about the safety and effectiveness of the NTI therapeutic protocol for the treatment of headaches and migraines.
Dr. Blumenfeld's presentation was based on survey responses from nearly 600 dentists that provided more than 75,000 NTI splints to their patients. The participating dentists reported the NTI served as an effective treatment for headaches in more than 90% of these patients. Dr. Blumenfeld's presentation also showed the NTI to result in undesirable clinical changes in less than 2% of patients. These findings were also published by Dr. Blumenfeld in The Journal of Headache and Pain. This is the only headache treatment I'm aware of that has been demonstrated to be this safe and effective.
