SPG Blocks for TMJ Pain

If you're experiencing facial and head pain from TMJ disorder, a sphenopalatine ganglion block can provide immediate relief.

Because of the nature of the nerve that runs through the temporomandibular joint, TMD pain can manifest in a number of places aside from the jaw.  While minor TMJ discomfort generally goes away without any treatment, there are instances where the pain can be constant and intolerable.  Get treatment with a sphenopalatine ganglion block for fast, lasting relief from facial and head pain.

Administering the SPG Block

While the root cause of TMJ pain is in the nerve that runs through the temporomandibular joint, that pain can manifest in other parts of the body in different forms:

  • Facial pain in the forehead, mouth, cheeks and eyes
  • Earaches
  • Neck and upper back

Originally developed to treat migraines, the SPG block has a range of other applications to help those experiencing pain related to TMJ disorder.  A thin applicator is inserted into each nostril to administer anesthetic directly to the nerve upstream of the TMJ nerve.  The result: fast relief from referred pain due to the TMJ nerve.
