Complete history, proper clinical evaluation along with some radiographs can help etermine the cause and possible treatment for this type of pain. Some of the more common causes of facial pain that are treated by our dentist Dr. Shah include:
- Tooth infection
- Sinus infection
- TMJ disorder
- Bruxism, also known as teeth grinding
- Periodontal gum disease
We provide treatments for facial pain depending on the cause. For TMJ or jaw-related pain, which is often caused by teeth grinding, we recommend that a custom splint be made and worn. Treating infections ranges from root canal procedures and antibiotics to extracting the tooth.
