Myofascial Pain Syndrome is caused by tension, fatigue, or spasms of muscles in the face, neck, or jaw. Symptoms include teeth grinding or clenching, pain and tenderness in and around the head and neck, sometimes there may be ringing in the ears, and often abnormalities of jaw mobility. Our dentists diagnose Myofascial Pain Syndrome based on your personal medical history and a physical examination. Conservative treatments including analgesics, muscle relaxation, habit modification, irrigation of the jaw join, and bite splinting, are often effective.
