Causes of orofacial pain – Orofacial Pain Treatment Chandigarh

There are different causes for orofacial pain, and it can be easily classified into dental conditions, neuropathic conditions, atypical facial pain, and TMD disorders

Dental conditions

The most common cause of orofacial pain is dental condition. Any pain that originates in the teeth, gums, and surrounding areas of the teeth are known to be of dental origin. The pain can be limited to the tooth or radiate to other areas. It can involve any tooth, including the third molars.The pain due to wisdom tooth radiates to neck , ear and temporal region and it is very crucial to identify this pain at an early stage.

TMD conditions

The TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, connects the skull with the lower jaw. Pain in this joint is called temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). The most common cause of TMD is misaligned teeth, which put extra stress on the joint. The cause of TMD is sometimes in the joint itself, mostly related to the ligaments or the joint capsule.

Neuropathic conditions

The two common neuralgias that cause orofacial pain are trigeminal neuralgia and glossopharyngeal neuralgia. The pain is sharp shooting caused by specific stimuli such as cold air or hot food items. Trigeminal neuralgia is characterized by the presence of trigger zones. 

Atypical facial pain

When the cause of orofacial pain is unspecific, it comes under the category of atypical facial pain. It is difficult to diagnose and treat such cases, but our team at Bristles Dental Studios Chandigarh is here to help you with your treatment planning


Got Invisible Aligners at Bristles

Been using clear aligners recommended by Dr. Kanish for sometime now. They’re really comfortable and nobody actually notices them unless you mention. Fantastic solution to teeth alignment without the use of metal braces! I’d definitely recommend at least a consultation with the Bristles Dental Studios’ team if you’re bothered by the current alignment of your teeth..

Got regular dental check up and esthetic fillings done are Bristles Dental Studios

Since childhood dentists have always scared me. However, this perception changed when I visited Bristles. Dr. Palak is the sweetest dentist I’ve come across. She makes the patient feel comfortable, undertakes the process slowly and smoothly by constantly informing the patient about the procedures. What to expect at Bristles:- 1. Amazing hygiene. 2. Competent staff. 3. Smooth procedures. 4. Genuine prices. 5. Lots of treatment options. What NOT to expect at Bristles:- 1. Overpriced services. 2. Misguidance 3. Rushed treatment. This place is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Visited the clinic in pain for a Root canal treatment

I went with a deep broken tooth and I was recommended root canal by Dr. Palak at Bristles Dental Studio. I have seen a friend in the past cry in pain after root canal and which is why I was really afraid to get it done. Dr. Palak understood my fears and made sure I was comfortable during the root canal process by using her specialised pain prevention processes. I didn’t have to bear a lot of pain and my root canal was done smoothly. I’m happy with my experience here.

Management of orofacial pain – Orofacial Pain Treatment Chandigarh

The management of orofacial pain depends on the cause, and thus, a comprehensive examination is important before customizing a treatment plan.

For dental conditions  

Treatment of orofacial pain depends on identifying the root cause of the problem. If toothache is the cause , then it is important to understand the cause before customizing the treatment plan. Pain arising from decayed teeth is generally treated with root canal treatment. 

For TMD conditions  

Diagnosing the TMD condition both clinically and radiologically is crucial before planning the treatment. Radiographic examinations to diagnose TMD include X-rays, CT scans, and MRI. Depending on the condition, TMD treatment can be conservative or surgical. Surgical treatment is usually the last resort when other methods have failed. 

For neuropathic conditions

For the cases where nerve compression is the root cause of pain, surgical decompression is planned.

For atypical facial pain

For treating atypical facial pain, the main line of treatment is medications like anticonvulsants or antidepressants.
