Drs. Tom and Shannon Galinis understand that millions of American adults suffer from chronic facial pain, such as jaw pain, headaches and even earaches. The source of these aches and pains may be related to one or both of the temporomandibular joints or a complex system of muscles, ligaments, discs and bones.
At Aesthetic Dentistry of Palm City, Drs. Tom and Shannon Galinis will do a comprehensive and thorough oral, joint and muscle palpation/examination to determine the source of pain, diagnosis and treatment.
Treatments can vary from simple to complex depending on the patient’s diagnosis. For example, conservative treatments include self-care/stretching, bite guards/splint, occlusal or bite adjustment, Trigger Point Therapy and/or Botox. More complex procedures include Invisalign Treatment and Restorative Dental procedures.
Muscle Relaxants can also be used temporarily to relax the jaw and/or reduce orofacial pain.
