facial pain

Orofacial pain is pain felt in any of the following areas: the mouth, jaws, face, sides of the head, ears or behind the eyes.

Orofacial pain can impact on work, family and social activities and includes:

  • Aching teeth that are not decayed or in poor repair
  • Sore or aching neck muscles
  • Clicking or tender jaw joint (TMJ)
  • Impaired jaw function, for example, chewing
  • Headaches
  • Sleep disorders
  • Loss of appetite
  • Increased sensitivity to noise, temperature, touch, vibration or pressure on face or scalp

A decision about treatment is made after discussion with the patient at Peter Maloney Dental.  We will be pleased to discuss the benefits, risks and limitations of treatment.  A team approach with other health professionals may be required to treat orofacial pain.

In addition to splint therapy and other treatment, referral for physiotherapy, relaxation program or biofeedback training to help stop tooth clenching or bruxism.
