Facial pain is an area of dentistry with close links to medicine. There are many potential causes but symptoms such as headaches, neck pain, muscle spasms and pain in the jaw often originate from problems in the mouth or jaw so your dentist may be better qualified than your doctor to diagnose any problems.
Dental problems are responsible for up to 70% of head and neck pain and around half of all migraines. If you suffer from persistent pain we offer a number of treatments from dental solutions to self-managed care strategies. It is best to book an appointment if you are worried. Once we know the cause of the pain we can begin to consider treatments that will work best for you.
We are experienced at diagnosing and treating head and neck pain, and if the diagnosis is outside of the dental remit we can refer you to hospital or back to your doctor for the most appropriate treatment.
