A common problem for many general dentistry patients is jaw pain. If you’ve ever had to deal with chronic jaw pain, then you know how annoying and painful it can be. Daily activities like chewing your food and even drinking your favorite beverages can become a chore if you are suffering from jaw pain and increased sensitivity.
Although it can be difficult to diagnose, jaw pain can result from sinus pressure, TMJ or even a dental infection. Even though you may not always know where it comes from at first, relieving jaw pain can be incredibly easy when you work a qualified dentist. Your family dentist can help determine where your jaw pain is coming from and can help you make a plan for relief so that you can start planning on a pain-free future.
Relieving jaw pain can be as simple as using a mouth guard at night to prevent grinding and morning jaw pain. Other techniques, including those that are designed to relieve TMJ and other disorders can also be incredibly helpful for those who are suffering from jaw pain. For some patients, relieving jaw pain means having surgery to correct damage or to repair a malformation of the jaw. Whether you suffer from advanced periodontal disease or simply have a sinus problem that is affecting your nerves and jawbone, Dr. Douglas can help you find the way back to a pain free life through x-rays and a thorough examination that will determine the best way to solve your problem.
