Migraine Therapy

Conventional Migraine Therapy

Primary care physicians or neurologists usually diagnose and treat migraines. Common migraine treatment options include a variety of medications, including over-the-counter drugs containing aspirin, acetaminophen and caffeine, antidepressant or anticonvulsant medications. Sometimes, these medications cause side effects or simply do not work.

At The Orofacial Pain Center, we are dedicated to helping you find safe effective ways

to manage migraines without all the medications and side effects.

To see if you are a candidate for our innovative migraine therapies call us today:


Our Migraine Therapy Plan

Non-Invasive, Non-Medicated Migraine Therapies

Migraines are complicated and they can complicate your life. Here at the Orofacial Pain Center, we don't believe that migraines should control your life. Dr. Wang will work with you to create a custom plan to help manage your migraines and minimize their impact on your daily life.

Identifying Your Triggers

The first step in preventing a migraine is to identify specific triggers that can contribute to your migraines and to find ways to avoid these triggers. We can teach you how to identify and to manage your migraine triggers. Headache diaries (noting the duration of each attack, number of headache days per month, associated symptoms and dietary/environmental triggers) can be helpful for identifying individual triggers.


Some examples of ways to avoid common triggers include:

  • Avoiding processed foods

  • Getting 6-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night

  • Going to bed at consistent times each night

  • Limiting daily caffeine intake

  • Exercising daily

  • Staying well hydrated

Tx360® SPG (Sphenopalatine Ganglion) Nerve Block

The Tx360® is a FDA-approved medical device for administering the SPG (sphenopalatine ganglion) nerve block. The Tx360® is designed to administer tiny amounts of fluids (typically anesthetic) via a thin catheter inside the nose. The fluid temporarily numbs the SPG, which is a nerve relay center linked to the trigeminal nerve (involved in many headache and facial pain disorders). The Tx360® offers a highly effective, non-invasive, pain-free and mostly drug-free (technically anesthetic is a drug) way to treat and to prevent migraines, as well as many other facial pains.

gammaCore™ Non-Invasive Vagus Nerve Stimulation

gammaCore™ is a FDA-approved handheld non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation device used to self-administer treatment at the first sign of a migraine or cluster headache. It can also be used on a daily basis to prevent migraine or cluster headaches and is available by prescription only.

At The Orofacial Pain Center, we are dedicated to helping you find relief.

The Notorious Intractable Migraine

The intractable migraine takes migraine suffering to another level. This is the migraine that returns day after day with a vengeance and does not respond to medications. Conventional therapies do not work for intractable migraines and many sufferers end up in the emergency room to seek pain relief.

If you are currently suffering from an intractable migraine that is resistant to conventional treatment, we may have alternative treatment options to help you. Dr. Wang has experience using a combination of therapies to help abort intractable migraines.
