To keep your smile safe, it is important to assess any damage or feelings of sensitivity or stress in your mouth at all times. This can often manifest as jaw and facial pain. If you are suffering from any jaw and facial pain that continually occurs, it could be linked to underlying ailments within your body.

Several risk factors arise that can induce jaw and facial pain, including oral health ailments such as bruxism, periodontal disease or TMJ disorders. Toothaches, infections, arthritis, oral accidents and injuries, and sinus issues and nasal congestions can often give rise to jaw and facial pain as well. To effectively treat and remove jaw and facial pain, visit our dentists for X-rays to determine what is the exact cause of your pain.

Once our dentists are familiar with what is contributing to your jaw and facial pain, they will be able to suggest the appropriate treatments. Several medications including anti-inflammatory drugs and antibiotics have been shown to be effective. Furthermore, mouth protectors may help as well as exercises to help strengthen your jaw. In situations where you are suffering from deep underlying ailments, a root canal, periodontal treatment or a tooth extraction may be required.
