Patients of Dr. George R. Walseth, D.D.S.

“.. For years I had horrendous headaches, severe neck pain and a jaw that locked constantly.  I looked for help from Dr. Walseth and learned I had a serious case of TMD.  After less than one month in a splint, I saw a tremendous difference. My headaches had subsided, my jaw was FINALLY relaxed, and my neck no longer had debilitating pain...”

“...So my husband and I made an appointment to see Dr. Walseth and from that point on, my life was about to change.  After the panoramic x-ray was taken, Dr. Walseth confirmed that TMJ was my problem...”

“...Dr. Walseth’s credentials and his work on this type of TMD issue. After a thorough exam including specialized x-rays, Dr. Walseth came up with a treatment plan....It is now 5 months later and the positioning of my upper and lower jaw has begun to change, as has my facial profile and most importantly, the migraines and earaches have faded away...”

About Migraine Headaches

Temporomandibular joint disorder, TMD

  1. A migraine headache can cause intense throbbing or pulsing in one area of the head and is commonly accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine attacks can cause significant pain for hours to days and be so severe that all you can think about is finding a dark, quiet place to lie down.

    Some migraines are preceded or accompanied by sensory warning symptoms (aura), such as flashes of light, blind spots or tingling in your arm or leg.

  Migraine afflicts 28 million Americans, with females suffering more frequently (17%) than males (6%). Missed work and lost productivity from migraine create a significant public burden. Nevertheless, migraine still remains largely underdiagnosed and undertreated. Less than half of individuals with migraine are diagnosed by their doctors.

    Recent nationwide work in the field of functional jaw orthopedics has shown a dramatic correlation between migraine headaches and TMD dysfunction through actual treatment results.

Dr. Walseth’s orthopedic treatment of the jaw joint demonstrates the following:

  1. Migraine headaches are a primary cause of  TMD (Temporomandibular dysfunction).

  2. Non-surgical orthopedic treatment is a cost effective way to permanently cure migraine headaches.

How do I relieve pain?

    Functional jaw orthopedics are a non-surgical opt

ion to cure migraine headaches. The treatment is divided into two phases: stabilizing and permanent. The stabilizing phase is to restore the jaw joints to normal and to remove, or at least greatly reduce the symptoms from which the patient is suffering.

    The permanent phase is more involved and varied but essentially requires making the patients' bite coincident with the new pain-free (phase 1) corrected jaw position. This is accomplished with either TMO-orthodontics or prosthetic restorative rehabilitation of the back teeth. A less involved permanent method using a removable prosthesis is also available.
