I recently treated a patient who a a continuous headache for over 50 years. I originally saw hew husband and my Schaumburg Chicagoland Dental Sleep Medicine Associates office to treat his sleep apnea with an oral appliance. We successfully treated his sleep apnea and in the process eliminated his snoring which she commented greatly improved her life. We then discussed her headaches and did spray and stretch with ethyl chloride and relieved her 50 year headache and gave her an Aqualizer appliance as a temporary "crutch" Her headache stayed away until the Aqualizer broke.

I nest saw "M" at my Gurnee office and did a diagnostic appointment and a diagnostic orthotic. Her next visit she reported being totally headache free. LIFE CHANGING! Over the last few months we have reconstructed her mouth to the position determined by the diagnostic orthotic and she remains headache free despite extremely high family stress due to medical issues.

Her grandchildren would ask her everyday "Do you still not have a headache."
