Are You Suffering From Chronic Orofacial Pain?
Generally, people suffering from orofacial pain have been in chronic pain for years and often don't think of turning to a dentist for diagnosis, treatment and pain management.
There are many potential causes to chronic orofacial pain, ranging from pain induced by trauma to common causes such as:
- Tooth pain: Orofacial pain is most commonly caused by tooth pain. Dr. Colina generally likes to determine if tooth pain is the cause of a patient's orofacial pain before moving on to other possible causes.
- TMD and TMJ: TMD is a group of jaw pain conditions that involve the masticatory muscles, the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) and other jaw strctures.
- Nerve pain: There are two types of nerve pain: episodic and continous. Episodic pain could have a neurological cause.
- Sinus pain: Issues with sinus pain and pressure can cause orofacial pain in the mid-face area and on multiple teeth.
Treatment Options For Orofacial Pain
The treatment for orofacial pain depends on the root cause of the chronic pain. Dr. Colina includes patient education, medication, physical therapy, oral sleep appliances and more to help treat patients suffering from orofacial pain.
