Jaw Joint Pain
We are very experienced at diagnosing and treating head and neck pain and can refer you to hospital or back to your doctor if we diagnose your problem as being outside our remit.
Jaw joints are us! Many people erroneously attend their doctor if they have jaw pain. We are experts at diagnosing and treating jaw joint problems with a full range of different treatments from simple pain killers and physio exercises through to complex bite splints and even surgery in hospital for the rare few.
Arthritis of the jaw joints is uncommon. The joints are the only joints we possess that are vascularised which means they have a proper blood supply and are able to heal if they are damaged. Our other joints heal poorly because they have poor blood supply.
