What an Orofacial Pain Management Doctor Can Do For You

The inability to recognise the characteristics of orafacial pain can result in misdiagnosis. In many cases, unnecessary, irreversible and costly dental treatments are performed to the patient’s detriment.

Some of the key differences between a general dentist and an orofacial pain doctor is in their area of education, training and experience.

This includes knowledge of causes and treatment options for orofacial pain such as sleep disorders, temporomandibular joint disorders, neuropathic pain and more.

Here are some greatest red flags to watch out for when seeking treatment for orofacial pain and TMD.
