    Abstract

    Out of 39 patients with intractable trigeminal neuralgia seven have had continuing relief for over three years after dental treatment. Five out of six recent consecutive edentulous patients had immediate improvement. More radical treatment, such as ganglion injection or nerve root section, has been at least postponed.
