Specializes in Pain Management

Temporo-mandibular disorder is the second most frequent cause of orofacial pain after dental pain. Headache, earache, neck pain and jaw pain are the common symptoms. Proper diagnosis is the key to successful treatment. See Orofacial Pain practitioner for a consultation and treatment options.
