Chronic jaw pain and facial pain is a condition that many adults suffer from, with symptoms that commonly include headaches, pain when biting, tenderness of the jaw, and pain either in or around the ear.
In an effort to properly diagnose the source of facial pain, a certified jaw pain dentist will need to administer a thorough examination, which will likely include x-rays. Seeing a facial or jaw pain dentist is the best way to effectively and quickly get treatment for potential issues causing the pain, such as:
- Sinus pain
- Tooth grinding
- Periodontal disease
There is a variety of treatment options that your jaw pain dentist might suggest, recommendations like using a mouth protector, muscle relaxants, doing exercises, taking anti-inflammatory drugs or antibiotics, root canal therapy, treatment of periodontal disease, or an extraction.
Additionally, our office houses several great jaw pain dentists with a wide range of experience from dental exams for patients of all ages, to x-rays, fillings, crowns dentist, dental implants, jaw pain, and more. Try your regular dentist first, but if your pain is severe, seek out an urgent care emergency dental facility.
