Dr. Michael Kun offers SPG blocks to treat migraine headaches. Sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) blocks provide immediate, long-term relief for migraines so that you can enjoy a pain-free lifestyle once again. To schedule a consultation with our dentist and find out if SPG blocks in Mertztown, Pennsylvania, are right for you, call Brandywine Dental today at 610-682-6386.
The sphenopalatine ganglion is a cluster of nerves located at the back of the nose. SPG blocks apply an anesthetic to that cluster to provide immediate relief by directly affecting the trigeminal central sensory nucleus in the brain. This area is the key to migraines. SPG blocks are not an injection. Our dentist will provide the anesthetic through a soft, flexible rubber catheter tube. This tube is inserted into a nostril to quickly provide relief. The results of your SPG block can last for up to three months to give you a long period of time without pain.
