While most studies suggest that headache is caused by constricted blood vessels in the brain, new researches prove that it can also originate from oral health problems.
In a recent study conducted at the New York Medical College, it was confirmed that an inflammation in the upper molar area also triggers headache. This being the case, researchers were able to establish a new medical relief that works better than Imitrex for headache patients.
The alternative procedure uses an Intraoral Vasoconstriction Device (IVC) to chill the inflamed area to reduce swelling. In the pilot test, the device was proven effective as it helped lessen the migraineur’s pain after 40 minutes of use.
