Bite Problems & Facial Pain Treatment in Raleigh, NC
Chronic jaw or facial pain is often debilitating. It can be especially frustrating when you or your doctors can’t figure out what is causing it. Visiting doctor after doctor with no real answers gets discouraging very quickly.
In some cases, jaw or facial pain is caused by bite problems. If this is the case, these bite problems can usually be corrected, helping you live a life free of pain. However, the pain must be managed before bite correction. This is because your bite will be different if you are in pain.
Do I Have a Bite Problem?
- Is your bite uncomfortable or does it feel unusual?
- Does your tooth, crown, bridge or implant hurt when you chew?
- Have you lost your bite/your bite is now different?
- Do you bite differently at different times, such as when you are sitting up or laying down (variable bite)?
- Are you breaking teeth or destroying implants or fillings?
If you have chronic pain in your face or jaw and answered yes to any of these questions, a bite problem may be contributing to your pain. Only a medical professional, such as those at the Raleigh Facial Pain Center, can determine if your pain is caused by a bite problem.
If you have pain that won’t go away, set up an appointment with board certified and residency trained Dr. Keith A. Yount of the Raleigh Facial Pain Center. Dr. Yount uses chewing system orthopedics to determine the cause of your chronic pain, then designs a therapeutic treatment plan to ultimately help you live a life free of pain.
