“I have jaw pain. How can Dr. Gilbert help?”
Many adults we see suffer from chronic jaw and facial pain. Some common symptoms they experience include pain in or around the ear, tenderness of the jaw, pain when biting, and even headaches. Dr. Gilbert notes that many things can cause facial pain, so it can be difficult to diagnose and treat.
Possible causes of jaw pain or facial pain include:
- Sinus problems
- Tooth grinding
- Periodontal (gum) disease
- Problems with your jaw or the temporomandibular joint
If you suffer from jaw pain or facial pain, we encourage you to give our office a call to schedule a visit with Dr. Gilbert. During your first visit, we will conduct a thorough exam, which may include X-rays, to determine the cause of the issue.
At our convenient Sandy Spring, GA office, we are proud to offer our patients Botox to rapidly and painlessly resolve pain issues related to disorders involving the TMJ. For more information about Botox and TMJ treatment, give us a call today!
