The causes of facial pain
There are several reasons a patient may have facial pain. Facial pain may be a side effect of several different conditions and problems, including:
- Chronic migraines/headaches
- Injuries to the facial area
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Abscesses in one or more teeth
- Trigeminal neuralgia
Because there are many reasons a patient might be experiencing facial pain, it is even more important for patients to get a proper evaluation from a professional. Dr. Jamil Alkhoury has years of experience in helping patients with their chronic pain, especially as it relates to the facial area. With a proper diagnosis, patients have options for treatment that may suit their needs. Treatment will vary, depending on the condition the patient is diagnosed with.
What treatment options are right for me?
No two cases are the same, and Dr. Jamil Alkhoury ensures that patients are treated as an individual. With each evaluation, he can provide treatment recommendations based on the patient’s condition, the severity of their condition, and their financial means. Some conditions may be easily treated by having a patient wear a specialized oral appliance or mouth guard to reduce pain and muscle fatigue, while others may require more extensive care.
In addition to suggested treatments, patients may be able to manage their condition as well with prescription pain medications. These may be used in conjunction with treatments to ensure patients are comfortable throughout the process. Our team of providers can evaluate patients and determine which solutions are best suited for their unique needs.
