If you’ve suffered from facial neuropathies,

there’s still hope for effective pain treatment! Read on for more details.

Neuropathic Pain: Therapy and Treatment

Though the cause of facial neuropathies is still unknown, a number of effective treatments have been found. When combined, therapies and treatments of various kinds are often the most effective ways to manage orofacial neuropathic pain. Because there are a variety of options and combinations when considering therapy and treatment, it is vital that the most effective pain management plan be decided by a professional in the field of orofacial neuropathic conditions.

Options Available

Atypical Odontalgia:

If the origin of pain is located in the teeth or gums, injections of steroids or local anesthetics may provide the best relief. Medicinal creams may also reduce pain effectively.

Nerve Injury:

If a patient has sustained nerve damage during a dental procedure, surgical nerve repair may greatly decrease neuropathic pain. The repair will be more effective if done sooner after the initial damage.

Trigeminal Neuralgia:

Nerve-blocking medicines are the first method for treatment of trigeminal neuralgic pain. A neuropathic doctor may prescribe antidepressants to effectively reduce pain if nerve-blockers do not provide relief.
