Trigeminal Neuralgia Prevention


There are no guidelines for preventing TN. However, once you have it, steps that may help prevent attacks include:

  • Eating soft foods
  • Eating food and drinking beverages that are room temperature
  • Washing your face with cotton pads and warm water
  • If tooth brushing triggers attacks, rinsing your mouth with warm water after eating
  • Avoiding or minimizing known triggers (eg, heat, cold, touch)
