TMJ disorders

Do you have trouble eating? Does your jaw hurt?

Common symptoms of TMJ disorders include jaw or face pain, headaches, jaw sounds, jaw locking, ear pain, ear stuffiness, etc.  


Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal neuralgia is one of the most debilitating pain condition. Patients suffering from this type of facial pain often describe it as "the worst possible pain that they have experienced."  Pain is typically electric-shock like and affects the same location of the face (along the course of one of the trigeminal nerve).
