Who Should Seek Care for Oral or Facial Injuries?
It's essential to have orofacial injuries or pain examined by a licensed professional right away as chronic head, neck, and face pain can greatly affect one's health. Cases such as jaw injuries, tooth-avulsions, and oral wounds should receive prompt medical attention to preserve your current and long-term oral health. In many instances, orofacial discomfort is caused by temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD), sleep disorders, trigeminal neuralgia, burning mouth syndrome, stress or anxiety, medications, or certain lifestyles/habitual routines. When you visit our office, we will perform a thorough assessment to create a treatment plan that is tailored to your unique needs and concerns.
