SPG Blocks are an effective treatment for head and facial pain, especially in cases of chronic migraines and severe non-migraine headaches. This procedure involves numbing the nerves of the Sphenopalatine Ganglion to provide relief from pain in the head and face.
How SPG Blocks Work
TMJ pain often radiates to various parts of the head and face.
SPG Blocks use a thin applicator to administer anesthetic to the nerves associated with TMJ pain.
This results in rapid relief from referred pain due to the TMJ nerve, providing immediate comfort for facial and head pain caused by TMJ disorder.

PRF injections are relatively painless and have a short recovery period.
Many patients experience significant symptom improvement after just a few sessions.
PRF injections can often eliminate the need for more aggressive treatments.
