Orofacial pain is a condition that refers to pain in the following areas:
While most instances of orofacial pain are linked to injury, this pain can also be caused by other medical conditions. These conditions include:
- Trigeminal neuralgia
- Pre-trigeminal neuralgia
- Atypical odontalgia (phantom tooth pain)
- Chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
At The Pain Management Center, we specialize in treating orofacial pain, and are prepared to provide you with an effective pain relief treatment for your symptoms.
How is Orofacial Pain Treated?
The treatment for orofacial pain will vary, depending on its cause and the symptoms that a patient is experiencing. In some cases, treatment may only involve medications and gentle therapies. For more severe cases, we may recommend trigger point injections, which will relax the muscles in the affected area to soothe inflammation and relieve pain. As a result, patients should experience a quick reduction in their symptoms and will be able to resume other forms of therapy with minimal discomfort. During your initial visit, our doctors will assess your condition in order to determine the treatment that will be most effective for your situation.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Orofacial Pain Treatment?
The results from your orofacial pain treatment will depend on the treatment method used as well as the extent of your symptoms. Some of our treatments may be able to provide long-lasting relief, while others may need to be repeated on a regular basis to maintain your results. During your initial visit, we will discuss your condition and your treatment goals in order to define the results that you can expect from your orofacial pain treatment.
