Chronic or recurrent pain of the face or jaw may be the result of a multitude of causes, from trauma, nerve injury, repetitive injury, bruxism, or temporomandibular disorder--to name a few. When scheduling an appointment, you may request an appointment with our pain specialist or your doctor may refer you for a pain evaluation.
Pain management programs for face and jaw pain may involve a comprehensive medical evaluation, x-rays and other diagnostic tests, and a variety of treatment modalities. If your pain is a result of surgery or other primary ailment, our pain specialist will coordinate your treatment plan in conjunction with your other doctors.
