Connections Matter: Headache Pain, Migraines & Tinnitus

Often Arise From Dental Malocclusion

Dr. Ron Rosenthal – Here Rosenthal weighs in on multiple biomedical pain and mind connections with migraines. With degrees in dentistry, biology, education, and a Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, he left Eastern Virginia’s tidewater for the hills of Kentucky, where he taught at the dental school there. He’s a geographic neighbor now back in Hampton Roads, VA, is retired, and, as you will soon see, deeply opinionated about specific dental challenges that directly affect brain function through unrelenting head pains. Until our interview, however, we had never previously met.

Know someone who suffers from migraines, headaches, or tinnitus? This fresh perspective offers evolved diagnostic and treatment options, not on the traditional headache radar.

Treatment Failure & Migraines

During his teaching tenure, he became a co-director of the division of occlusion. That’s the track where they teach details about headaches, migraines, and closely associated tinnitus. After appointment as the director of the Treatment Planning Division, he began to understand these connections more completely. Dr. Rosenthal brings years of experience to one of the most commonly missed contributory conditions that create migraine pain: dental challenges.

Yes, you read that correctly. Small dental misalignments are measured and corrected in challenges that arise in less than a millimeter of dental enamel. Ron tells us how he’s worked this out for many stuck in years with dramatic pain and tinnitus.

Why Discuss Migraines And Tinnitus?

In a word, these several conditions often arise from previously unknown connections. Tinnitus is often directly linked to migraines and headache pain, and far too often these dots, those crossroads, exist in a disconnected, under-appreciated but imperative, biomedical reality. In this CBJ/138 Dr. Rosenthal discusses multiple connections, he’s personally witnessed and successfully treated over the years.

Our Next CoreBrain Journal Episode

139: Adam Piore – For millennia, humans have tried—and often failed—to master nature and transcend our various physical limits. But this arrested development has begun to change. The new scientific frontier is the human body: the greatest engineers of our generation have turned their sights inward, and their work now starts to revolutionize humankind. Piore’s book, The Body Builders, takes us on a fascinating journey into the field of bioengineering—which can be used to reverse engineer, rebuild, and augment human beings—and paints a vivid portrait of the people at the center of these remarkable biomedical improvements.

Piore Reports On Options

Chronicling the ways new technology has retooled our physical expectations and mental processes, Piore visits people who have regrown parts of their fingers and legs in the wake of terrible traumas. He tries on a muscle suit that allows him to lift ninety pounds with his fingertips, and dips into the supplement race to create “Viagra for the brain.” He also shadows the doctors trying to give mute patients the ability to communicate telepathically. Are you skeptical? Fasten your seat belts and listen up. If you know anyone with a serious physical injury, this Episode takes us all to remarkably innovative different lands for improved recovery opportunities.

    Malocclusion intrigues me as a potential cause for my headaches, particularly as my bite is unusual – an entirely open bite with my only two (2) points of occlusion being a single set of molars on each side. I would like to contact Dr. Rosenthal for any relevant insight or information he might offer but I find no link in these show notes(?) Are you able to please direct me or otherwise assist in making contact?

    (By the way, discovery of your podcast over the holidays has been a profound unexpected benefit of the suspension of new podcasts from my regular menu! I am now an enthusiastic listener.)

    Many thanks.

      Many thanks, Rob – our guests are terrific. Dr. Rosenthal has retired, but I would check out the links here to find others so inclined. I have another guy here in Va Beach who shares his opinions – just don’t have his name at this moment. Are you in VA?

    Great talk, I have a couple questions!

    1. How could malocclusion and/or grinding cause light sensitivity–a hallmark symptom of migraines?
    2. If plastic nightguards are not suggested, how would nighttime clenching be avoided?

    Lastly, what other avenues would you explore if you were dealing with unexplained tinnitus for several months aside from discussing with ENTs/neurologists/chiropractors? I’m currently have a plastic dayguard and a plastic nightguard as per my TMJ dentist…It has improved my bite so far in a couple weeks of treatment, but I still have sore face muscles i.e. masseter.

    I won’t accept unexplained “atypical migraines” as a diagnosis! Will continue to search for the root of the problem.

      I’m not the expert on these matters and suggest you contact Dr. Rosenthal at the links in these show notes. As you know after listening he is much stronger on precise malocclusion correction by correcting oral/teeth structure instead of simply using bite guards. Thanks for weighing in,
