To ensure your smile has the greatest chance of oral health care success, it is important to diagnose and treat any forms of jaw or facial pain that occur. Chronic jaw or facial pain can arise due to numerous causes, including TMJ disorders, gum disease, sinus problems, headaches, and infections. If you are suffering from chronic jaw or facial pain, it is important to visit your dentist so that an effective treatment plan can be given.

If you do suffer from jaw or facial pain, one of the most highly effective treatments to consider is exercises to help strengthen and relax your muscles and joints. For comprehensive treatments, visit your dentist for an oral examination to determine the cause of the pain and treatment plans to consider.

Administer muscle relaxants, anti-inflammatory drugs, or antibiotics to help treat your jaw or facial pain. In addition, mouth protectors are extremely beneficial. Furthermore, if you require additional oral health care treatments, root canal therapies, periodontal treatments, and tooth extractions are all known to be highly beneficial for jaw and facial pain.
