Receiving oral medicine treatment

The list below includes some of the more common types of dental-related problems that require someone to undergo oral medicine treatments provided by craniofacial pain specialists.

Burning mouth syndrome

Burning mouth syndrome is a dental problem that causes patients to experience a burning feeling of pain inside of their mouths. The fact that it can be very difficult to understand the underlying cause of this syndrome, can make it difficult to treat. It is important for those suffering from this syndrome to know whether they have primary or secondary burning syndrome, as treatment depends on the type they have.

Dry mouth

When a patient is diagnosed with dry mouth, it means that their salivary glands are not able to produce enough saliva in order to keep their mouth moist, which is important to their overall good dental health. In order for a patient to be treated when they have been diagnosed with dry mouth, it is important for a craniofacial pain specialist to first understand the underlying factors in order to properly treat the patient.

Canker sores

While many people have experienced one or more canker sores during their lifetime, when it has been determined that a patient is living with a severe case of canker sores, they may benefit from undergoing oral medicine treatment. Canker sores often appear on the tongue, cheeks, lips and soft palate of the mouth, which can cause those diagnosed to experience a tingling or burning sensation often, diminishing their overall quality of life.
