Head and Neck Pain in Panania NSW – What Causes It?

It’s understandable that because you have head and neck pain you might feel that a visit to your GP in the local 2213 area is the best option. Whereas in reality, an experienced dentist in Panania NSW is more attuned to help.

Why?

Because as a full-service dentist in Panania NSW, our clinic deals with all aspects of the mouth and jaw. As the temporomandibular joint is in effect a sliding hinge that connects your jaw bone to your skull, it’s natural that we would look at problems associated with it and help with pain management treatment

Symptoms such as headaches, facial pain, neck problems, and jaw clicking or popping can all be caused by TMJ disorder and the main causes include:

  • Arthritis
  • Misaligned bite and
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding)

Pain Management in Panania NSW – How We Can Help

Our highly skilled team of dentists in Panania NSW have at their disposal some of the latest equipment designed to detect the cause of TMJD such as teeth grinding. These include neuromuscular devices in the form of bite strips which detect the intensity of a person’s bite during sleep. 

Whether or not pain can be managed will naturally depend upon the patient’s condition. For instance, arthritis cannot be cured. However, in many cases, effective relief can be found even when the underlying cause isn’t always eliminated. As a comprehensive dentist in Panania NSW, we have a variety of pain management treatments and services at our disposal including 

  • Nightguards 
  • Neuromuscular dentistry including bite strips
  • Jaw and bite therapies
  • Orthodontic treatments 
  • Restorative dental care
  • Laser therapy; and even
  • Oral surgery

all of which can help patients in Panania NSW with pain management.

If you have head and neck pain and need to find a health solution, then talk to Picnic Point Dental about pain management in Panania today.
