Diagnosis of Oral-Facial Pain

Our experienced doctors know how to tell the difference between pain that you are experiencing which has an endodontic cause, meaning that it is associated with the tissue within the root of your tooth, and a non-endodontic cause (such as neuralgias, sinus infections, etc.)

The fact that you are experiencing oral pain does not necessarily mean that you must have root canal therapy. Sometimes oral pain may mimic that of a toothache but is actually caused by an abscess within the gum, bruxism (grinding of the teeth), a cracked tooth, sinus infection, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, a blocked salivary gland, cervical (neck) problems, atypical facial neuralgia (constant pain on one side of the face encompassing a wide group of facial pain problems), and more.

If the doctors find that the source of your oral or facial pain is from one of these other causes, root canal therapy or other endodontic treatment will not be necessary. In this case, we will refer you to the correct treating physician so that your problem can be properly treated and resolved.
