Signs that You Have Facial Pain

Tooth and jaw pain can be caused by various factors, ranging from tooth decay and tooth fractures, sinus problems, or TMJ (temporomandibular joint) stress. Common characteristics of a toothache include sharp pain triggered when eating or drinking something hot, cold, sweet, or sour.

On the other hand, pain in the jaw may vary in intensity. Jaw pain can include sensations such as swelling, tenderness to touch, difficulty chewing, and clicking or popping when opening and closing the mouth. Fortunately, tooth and jaw pain can be successfully managed with a proper diagnosis from one of our Frisco dentists.

Advantages of Tooth and Jaw Pain Management

Dealing with tooth and jaw pain can feel like a daunting challenge. However, acknowledging tooth and jaw pain is the first step to successful management—the earlier the treatment, the better. Early tooth and jaw pain interventions can help improve patient outcomes while minimizing treatment time and costs. Moreover, timely and effective tooth pain and jaw pain management often lead to increased well-being and improved quality of life.

How It Works

While it’s ok to take over-the-counter medications as directed for temporary jaw or tooth pain remedies, the most effective way to treat facial pain is the identify the cause of the discomfort. A good tooth pain and jaw management plan will cover dietary considerations, tooth care techniques, stress reduction methods, and more, depending on the individual case. Creating an effective tooth and jaw pain management plan with your dentist offers many potential benefits that far outweigh any initial difficulties or anxieties in starting it.
