Overview Of Orofacial Pain & TMJ

We take deep interest in the patient’s condition and prepare the patient to accept the root cause or origin of pain. We work closely to build interest and confidence in the patient towards a common goal. Our treatment has two clear goals – pain relief and functional rehabilitation. We use a combination of evidence based practice and counseling to treat patients. For us patients are a source of learning and achievement.

Neocare plans to bring into India advances in medical sciences achieved in developed countries like USA through constant exchange and mentorship programs with leading authorities in orofacial treatment.

Myofascial (Muscle) pain, also known as chronic myofascial pain (CMP) is a syndrome categorized by chronic pain caused by multiple trigger points and fascial constrictions. The most notable feature of CMP is the presence of trigger points. In some casesthe origin of pain is different from the location where a person experiences pain. Nearly everyone at some point suffers from muscle pain, commonly known as myalgia fascitis or myofascitis. CMP most often occurs in people between the ages of 30 and 60 years & affects men and women equally.
Temporomandibular Joint disorders (TMD) are a common subgroup of orofacial pain disorders often referred to as “TMJ” (Tempromandibular Joint), which is nothing but the name of the joint. TMJ connects the temporal bone (the bone that forms the side of the skull) and the mandible (the lower jaw). TMD can be explained as pain in the jaw joint and surrounding tissues and limitation in jaw movements.
Headaches are one of the most commonly experienced pain. Headache can be occasional, periodic or chronic in nature.
Headache is experienced through pain-sensitive structures around the head and neck including blood vessels, nerves, muscles and tissues, including the eyes, ears and sinuses. It can range in intensity from mild to tolerable to severe pain that does not allow daily activities. When headaches are recurrent and interfere with function, they become a disorder.
Neuropathic pain is a group of conditions in which there has been damage to the nerves that transmit sensation. Traditionally, neuropathic facial pain begins following an injury to the face, teeth or gums which can be through tooth extraction, trauma, surgery or sometimes routine dental procedures.
Everyone knows a good night’s sleep can make or break his or her day. What most people don’t know is that sleep apnea ignored for long period of time can lead to complications of severe nature like high blood pressure, stroke, heart failure, irregular heartbeats, heart attacks, diabetes, depression and headaches.
