Do You Have Orofacial Pain?
The effects of orofacial pain can range from mild to debilitating and can impact your general comfort and quality of life. Any pain or injury that occurs within the head, neck, face, or jaw should be evaluated promptly, particularly if a tooth is knocked out, or facial or oral lacerations occur. Symptoms of orofacial pain may be acute or chronic and may include headaches, jaw pain, TMJ pain, a burning or itching sensation, or tension in the neck, shoulders, or upper back, among others. While the cause remains unknown in some cases, orofacial discomforts commonly result from sleep disorders, TMD, trigeminal neuralgia, nervous system disorders, environmental factors, and certain medications. Our team can provide a thorough assessment of your condition and symptoms and help find treatment solutions to provide the relief and comfort you seek.
Diagnosing Head, Neck, and Facial Pain
Our highly trained team uses advanced diagnostic techniques to evaluate head, neck, and facial pain and pinpoint the causes behind orofacial pain. We will examine the affected region and may take digital x-rays or other types of scans to gain a better view of any internal damage that may have occurred. Treatment recommendations will be customized to meet individual needs and based on bringing relief from pain or other uncomfortable symptoms. While many conditions may be addressed within our state-of-the-art dental practice, such as knocked-out teeth, minor oral lacerations, and TMJ pain, we may partner with a specialist to help you get the comprehensive care you need. Our caring team understands how impactful orofacial can be on your quality of life and will work as quickly as possible to help you once again enjoy comfort and wellness.
