Chronic facial pain can be devastating in a person’s life. Oftentimes, chewing, eating, kissing, smiling, and brushing teeth can trigger severe pain. Causes may include shingles, trigeminal neuralgia, TMJ syndrome, stroke pain, etc. Treatments may include oral medications, physical therapy, psychotherapy, trigeminal ganglion injections, sphenopalatine ganglion injections and surgery.
