The National Headache Foundation suggests that more than 29 million Americans suffer from migraines, with more than 157 million work and school days lost each year due to pain. The causes include trigger factors that excite brain cells and ultimately cause a reaction in the trigeminal nerve, resulting in pain. presentation will address the increased understanding of the mechanisms that exacerbate and/or cause pain in the head, face, and oral environment and why any patient suffering with problems based in these areas can be cared for by a knowledgeable dentist.
