What is causing my facial pain? It could be a TMJ Disorder, or Trigeminal Neuralgia.

Rest assured, when you are in pain right now, Deldar Dental can help. Please read this:

"When you experience facial pain, I am aware it can affect your entire life. Having treated hundreds of patients suffering from facial pain symptoms, taught me that people with facial pain sometimes have to endure excruciating pain. Their daily life, work, sleep, and relationships can be heavily impacted by an ongoing strain around the eyes, nose, mouth and cheeks. Some people seek treatment immediately, some are determined to 'live through it', some seek more information to define the road ahead towards facial pain relief.

When you don't know what is causing your facial pain, it's hard to make a plan to get rid of it. You might have done some Internet research and found two possible causes:

  1. TMJ Disorder
  2. Trigeminal Neuralgia

Both have significant different symptoms, but both can cause facial pain, so it's hard to determine the cause without a thorough examination. Though the Internet is an amazing resource for information, some articles can reflect contradicting causes, view points and treatment approaches. Confusion is not uncommon here.

When you are at the point of taking resolute action to get rid of your facial pain, but don't know what to do, please read this page thoroughly, then take action.

I wish you strength at this challenging moment and most importantly CLARITY, so you can define the next steps toward facial pain relief."

Do I have TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) disorder?

TMJ-disorder-noblesville

It's important to understand the unique symptoms of both a TMJ Disorder and Trigeminal Neuralgia. The symptoms below will help you identify which condition you may have.

  • Clicking or crunching in your jaw joint
  • Difficulty opening your mouth
  • Muscle spasms
  • Your jaw locks open or closed
  • The pain radiates into your neck and shoulders
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Ringing in your ears

The facial pain from TMJ disorder may feel similar to arthritis. Trigeminal neuralgia feels sharp and electrifying.

 

What is a TMJ  Disorder?

This name applies to many conditions that impact the temporomandibular joints. These important joints connect your jaw to your skull. TMJ Disorder or TMD for short, can throw off your jaw's alignment. This causes several symptoms throughout your face and body.

I see it again and again: patients don't realize that TMJ can cause pain in other areas of the body. In fact, TMJ often causes aches and pain in your neck, back, and shoulders.

 

TMJ Treatment Options

Our comprehensive TMJ treatment plan includes a few steps. This plan targets the painful symptoms while healing the root cause.

  1. Initial pain relief with Ultra-Low Frequency Transcutaneous Electrical Neural Stimulation (TENS) is an excellent drug-free method. This technique improves blood flow and promotes natural pain relief from endorphins.
  2. Adjusting your bite. I use a non-invasive, custom-built orthotic that can gently balance your jaw to its optimum position.
  3. Making it last. This step varies depending on your personal needs. Methods may include braces, adjusting your tooth enamel, crowns, or full smile makeovers. The goal is to stop what's causing your TMJ disorder at the source while enhancing your bite at the same time.

It's even possible you face both conditions. That's why you should meet with a qualified Physiologic TMJ dentist to discuss your symptoms and find a comprehensive treatment.

Do I have Trigeminal Neuralgia?

Trigeminal-Neuralgia-noblesville

Trigeminal Neuralgia sends jolts of pain throughout your face. Daily activities usually trigger an episode. This can make brushing your teeth, eating, or talking very painful. Even a soft summer breeze can send shock waves through your facial nerves.

 

What Causes TN?

Your trigeminal nerves control jaw motion on either side of your face. They also send information back and forth from your brain to your jaw and face.

You experience excruciating pain when something disrupts this process. Several factors can deteriorate or impact these nerves' ability to function.

  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Stroke
  • Nerve damage from injuries, prior surgeries, or age
  • Pressure on the nerve (or nerves) from nearby blood vessels, obstructions, or tumors

 

Specific TN Symptoms

As a TMJ specialist, I want to you understand trigeminal neuralgia's unique set of symptoms. You can then seek treatment from a professional armed with knowledge about your condition. Many dentists may not have the experience to understand the subtle differences between these painful conditions.

  • Sharp facial pain
  • Sharp tooth pain
  • Sharp pain underneath or in front of your ear
  • Symptoms feel isolated on one side of the face.
  • Symptoms come on suddenly.

Even slightly touching your face can trigger severe pain.
