All migraines and headaches are products of the Trigeminal Nervous System.
It could be stated that the Trigeminal Nerve is the “MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE OF HEADACHE”
The entire universe of headaches is directly related to the Trigeminal Nervous System. One major system of the Trigeminal Nervous System is the Trigemino-vascular System. This is the system where the trigeminal nerve controls the blood flow to the anterior two thirds of the meninges of the brain. The control is asserted by release of vasoactive neuropeptides like CGRP or Calcitonin Gene Related Peptide.
CGRP is produced and released by both peripheral and central trigeminal neurons. CGRP is a potent vasodilator and when released by trigeminal nerves in the meninges it creates vasodilation. It is this vasodilation that cause migraines to be labeled vascular headaches.
MIGRAINES ARE ACTUALLY NEUROGENIC HEADACHES THAT LEAD INTO VASCULAR DILATION WORSENING AND PEAKING OF EFFECTS. THE VASODILATION IS SECONDARY NOT PRIMARY.
CGRP is produced primarily in cell bodies of motor neurons, and CGRP related to migraines is released by the trigeminal nerve.
THE TRIGEMINO-VASCULAR SYSTEM IS THE MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE OF TRIGEMINAL VASCULAR HEADACHES OR BASICALLTY ALL HEADACHES.
The Trigeminal Nerve is often called the Dentist’s Nerve because for practical purposes dentists are the Masters of the maxillary, mandibular and ophthalmic branches of the Trigeminal Nerve.
If the Trigeminal Nerve is responsible for headaches thru the Trigemino vascular system and trigeminal cervical complex then controlling the input that intiates headaches is certainly part of dentistry. Controlling the noxious input throught the trigeminal nerve responsible for setting of vascular headaches is the dentist.
The Physiologic Dentist is reccgnized experts of working with the Trigeminal nervous system to create an occlusion based on physiologic rest. Occlusion is determined ideal when function is followed by a return to physiologic rest.
It should the be fair to assert that Physiologic Dentists are the Trigeminal Nervous System Specialists including the three main branches, especially the mandibular branch that include motor neurons responsible for release of CGRP which is responsible for the vascular effects seen in migraine.
Physiologic Dentists trained to deliver Sphenopalatine Ganglion Blocks (SPG Blocks) are also Masters of The Autonomic Trigeminal Universe.
Add to this that dentists control the structures that manage airway, balance and posture as well as the Mesencephalic Nucleus the fastest synapse and only electrical synapse in the CNS. Te mesencephalic nucleus is the proprioceptive nucleus of the trigeminal nerve.
The NHLBI of the NIH has reported on “Cardiovascular and Sleep Related Consequences of TMJ Disorders”
Putting all this information together.
Dentists are the masters of the Trigeminal Nerve
Physiologic Dentists are the Masters of the masters understanding input and output to the CNS through the Trigeminal Nervous System
The trigeminal Nerve and its components the trigeminovascular system and Trigeminal cervical complex are the masters of the universe of all headaches in addition to providing key control of basic physiologic functions such as sleep and breathing.
One can only conclude the “NEUROMUSCULAR DENTISTS ARE THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE FOR PREVENTING, ABORTING AND ELIMINATING MIGRAINES.”
