Norwalk orofacial pain

Norwalk orofacial pain

When people experience orofacial pain, their first call is often to their dentist. Many different conditions will present with similar symptoms, making it difficult for a dentist to arrive at an accurate diagnosis. Without a correct diagnosis, it is virtually impossible to provide the care necessary to alleviate a person’s pain. If this sounds familiar to you, and you have been experience Norwalk orofacial pain to no avail, then perhaps it’s time you visit the dental office of Alan B Rosenthal DMD.

Orofacial pain is an evolving area within the field of dentistry dedicated to the treatment of complex orofacial pain disorders, and the scope of the field is enlarging. Dr. Alan B Rosenthal has accumulated extensive knowledge and experience throughout over 30 years of his practice in managing complicated cases. He is a sleep doctor, board certified Orofacial pain doctor, a Fellow of American Academy of Orofacial Pain, and holds a Master’s degree in Public Health and Master’s degree in Global Public Health. In short, he is well adept at diagnosing and treating Norwalk orofacial pain. Orofacial pain is pain perceived in the face and/or oral cavity. It is caused by diseases or disorders of regional structures, by dysfunction of the nervous system, or through referral from distant sources. This includes, but is not limited to complex masticatory and cervical musculoskeletal pain, neurovascular pain (i.e. headache disorders resulting in orofacial pain), neuropathic pain, psychosocial concerns, as well as sleep disorders related to orofacial pain. Other complex disorders causing persistent pain and dysfunction of the orofacial structure may cause orofacial pain. Treatment, of course, is dependent on the cause of the Norwalk orofacial pain. If it is due to a sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea, then a device worn while the patient sleeps may be all that’s needed.
