How Can You Help with My Face/Jaw Pain?
The underlying cause of a lot of face/jaw pain is a condition called TMD, or temporomandibular joint disorder. While this might sound like a mouthful, it basically refers to a problem with your jaw joint. Whether due to stress, injury, or arthritis, the muscles and nerves of the jaw can become strained and tense, and this can often radiate into the face to create pain in the cheeks and head.
After giving a patient a thorough exam, we can figure out exactly what is happening in their jaw joint to create the pain, and then treat it directly using a variety of methods. By tackling the root cause of the pain, we can largely reduce it or make it go away entirely.
