Oral Health Issues: Jaw and Facial Pain

March 29, 2018

If you are suffering from facial pain, it could be the sign of a deeper underlying condition. Normally chronic jaw and facial pain can include swelling, tenderness, or headaches that may be associated with other issues. If you are suffering from jaw or facial pain, it is important to understand the causes and treatment plans that can be used

It is important that you make an appointment to visit your dentist as soon as possible. Using X-rays and other diagnostic tools, your dentist will be able to determine the exact cause of your pain and treat any underlying conditions you may have. If you’ve recently had any sinus infections or are dealing with problems such as toothaches, gum disease, or TMJ disorders, you could be at an increased risk for jaw and facial pain.

If you routinely suffer from chronic jaw and facial pain, treating underlying conditions may require complex oral health procedures. Several common treatments for jaw and facial pain include gum disease treatments, root canal therapy, medications such as muscle relaxants and antibiotics, jaw and facial exercises, night guards and the use of anti-inflammatory drugs.
