Novel migraine cure devised by dentist

A dentist has found a novel way of treating severe migraines. Migraine symptoms include severe pain and light and noise sensitivity. He uses rubber tubes and metal probes to deliver iced water to the maxillary nerve inside the mouth which is inflamed and swollen. Cooling the nerve makes the migraine disappear. The treatment is generally $300 for the first visit and $125 for follow ups - usually 2 or 3 are required. Then a gel is used as a preventative measure. The device has been approved for use by the FDA.
