Are you experiencing chronic jaw and facial paint and looking for treatments and prevention methods to improve your smile? Treating jaw and facial pain includes going directly to the source in determining what is causing it. If your jaw and facial pain include tenderness within your jaw, teeth, smile, or headaches, it could be linked to an oral health condition that is yet untreated.
If you suffer from bruxism, also known as teeth grinding, or have a gum tissue infection such as gum disease, it may need to be treated first to ensure that chronic pain can be minimized. If you have a TMJ disorder or suffer from arthritis, it can be linked to jaw and facial pain. Furthermore, toothaches, infections and oral health injuries can increase your risk of jaw and facial pain.
To properly treat chronic jaw and facial pain, visit our oral surgeons so that an assessment exam can be given. Depending on your oral health care needs, products such as muscle relaxants, anti-inflammatory drugs, antibiotics or a mouth protector may be dispersed accordingly. Furthermore, our team can help you with strength exercises to improve the health of your jaw as well as with dental procedures such as a root canal therapy, periodontal treatment or a tooth extraction to deal with any underlying conditions that may be present.
