Facial pain, also known as trigeminal neuralgia, is a very real condition and can cause extreme discomfort. If you suffer from it, you know the pain can almost seem like an electric shock and that it can make a dental visit very difficult. Even if this is a problem for you, we would still like to see you at The Wilhelm Dental Group for your dental appointments.
This type of pain can be triggered by any number of things, including dental work. Even if this is a problem for you, we would still like to see you at The Wilhelm Dental Group for your dental appointments. Let our dentist, Dr. Eric Wilhem, know that you live with this issue, and our team will be happy to work with you to find ways to make your visit as comfortable as possible.
If your discomfort is due to causes other than trigeminal neuralgia, talk with our us about other options such as occlusal adjustments or TMJ treatments. There are other dental conditions that can contribute to this problem, and we can give you an examination to help find the cause.
