What is craniofacial pain?

Craniofacial pain mainly affects the head, neck, and face, which can make daily activities difficult and uncomfortable to perform. Specific symptoms often include recurring and painful headaches that occasionally cause visual disorders, and also earaches and/or ringing in the ears, feeling of fullness in the ears, back and neck tension aches, facial muscle fatigue, pain in temples and forehead, carpel tunnel syndrome, chronic cracking and popping in the neck. Possible causes of this discomfort include injury, malocclusion of the teeth, stress, bruxism (grinding and clenching of the teeth), ill-fitting dental prosthetics and orthodontics, and diseases of the bone or joints.

If the above symptoms sound familiar, it’s possible that you may suffer from TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction. Dr. Askari invites you to call Comfort Dental Spa, located in Farmington Hills, Michigan, at (248) 474-6434 to reserve an appointment.
