Treating temporomandibular disorders.
Orofacial pain is a broad term used to refer to pain in your mouth, jaw and face, commonly caused by Temporomandibular disorders (TMDs).
Temporomandibular disorders is the pain caused by the incorrect, non-synchronised function of your jaw joint and its adjoining muscles, with referring pain often beyond these areas. Pain may include jaw clicking or popping, or pain in the jaw, ear, face or neck.
Typical treatment is largely conservative – education, removal appliances and topical agents. Pharmacological treatments such as Botulinum Toxin injections are also available and are discussed on a case-by-case basis.
