Screening Process

There's no specific screening process for Trigeminal Neuralgia type 1. It's really a clinical diagnosis, so if somebody presents to their doctor or dentist or orthodontist with these jolts of pain on one half of their face, then they should be referred to either a neurologist or neurosurgeon who's comfortable and confident treating this disorder.
