About Head, Neck, and Facial Pain
Head, neck, or facial pain may range from minor to severe in severity and often results from automobile accidents, sports injuries, temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD), and slip-and-falls, among other events. While this type of condition, also known as orofacial pain, may be caused by a broad array of sources, it most commonly stems from issues related to the mouth or jaw. Head, neck, and facial pain may begin as a sudden or gradual onset of a dull ache, stabbing pain, itching, burning, or other uncomfortable symptoms affecting your jaw, face, neck, or head. If you experience orofacial pain, please schedule a consultation at PURE Oral Surgery. Our Dallas, TX oral and maxillofacial surgery specialists have extensive experience in diagnosing and treating head, neck, and facial pain and helping DFW patients manage these often debilitating symptoms.

Candidates for Head, Neck, or Facial Pain Care
Any patient who experiences pain in the face, neck, head, or jaw may be candidates for oral and maxillofacial care. While there may be no apparent source for discomfort in some cases, these symptoms are commonly associated with physical trauma, bruxism (teeth clenching and grinding), TMD, sleep apnea, nervous system disorders (such as trigeminal neuralgia), and lifestyle factors, among other causes. Any degree of acute or chronic pain, discomfort, or injury that affects the head, neck, or facial regions should be evaluated by a professional as early as possible since certain conditions (like knocked-out teeth) require swift, timely care. Please contact one of our Dallas, TX oral surgery centers promptly if you experience:
- Facial pain or trauma
- Oral pain or injury
- Jaw or TMJ pain
- Burning or itching
- Migraines or chronic headaches
- Pain or tenderness in the shoulders, neck, or upper back
Diagnosing Orofacial Pain
Our skilled oral surgeons implement state-of-the-art technologies and techniques in diagnosing the source of orofacial pain. A member of our team will listen carefully to your concerns and symptoms and examine the affected area. Advanced 3D digital images may also be taken, which can provide us with a detailed view of internal areas within your head, neck, mouth, and jaw. Once our PURE Oral Surgery team has evaluated your symptoms and identified the factors contributing to your condition, we will talk with you about your treatment options and inform you of what to expect throughout the process.
What to Expect With Treatment
Treatment for head, neck, and facial pain will be customized to each patient and provided according to individual needs. Your treatment may take place over the course of one or more visits to our practice and will be geared toward alleviating your head, neck, or facial pain while improving your function and quality of life. We may also provide suggestions on how to prevent these symptoms from occurring in the future, such as wearing a custom night guard or sports mouth guard when needed. Additional palliative care options (such as anti-inflammatory medications, lifestyle changes, hot/cold compresses, and exercises and stretches) may also be incorporated into your treatment plan to help provide ongoing relief and comfort.
