TMJ and Facial Pain

     Our practice has a special interest in patients with orofacial pain. We see a variety of different conditions that very often do not fall into the categories of TMD or headaches. Although these patients may exhibit many of the same symptoms the primary source of their pain is from a different disorder.

In addition to TMD and headaches, some of the other conditions that we frequently see include but are not limited to the following:

  1. Neuralgias ( trigeminal, glossopharyngeal, and others)
  2. Deafferentation ( nerve damage ) pain from trauma, surgery, and systemic diseases
  3. Referred pain from nearby structures (ears, eyes, sinuses, neck etc)
  4. Dental disorders

      Orofacial pain is a complex area of medicine with disorders overlapping many specialties. To insure the highest level of care for our patients, it is necessary to take a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment. In this regard we have established ongoing relationships with neurology, orthopedics, ENT, oral surgery, and physical therapy offices. If we believe that an evaluation in any of these areas is needed, we will recommend a qualified practitioner.
