Facial pain is often caused by the following disorders: temporal tendonitis, Ernest Syndrome, occipital neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia (tic douloureux), NICO (Neuralgia Inducing Cavitational Osteonecrosis). Dr.Wesley Shankland has been successfully diagnosing and treating people with these disorders for many years, and is respected as an expert in this field.
Pain is oftentimes the driving factor which brings people to the dental office initially and facial pain, not tooth pain, is not exception. Many patients have sought relief from their physician, ENT doctor and even their dentist, only to be told that nothing is wrong or, “It’s all in your head and you have to live with the pain.”
Dr. Wesley Shankland has been treating patients with all types of facial and head pain since the early 1980s and patients travel from all over the world to see him in their pursuit of pain relief.
Pain is a private experience. No one, not even a spouse or loved one, can honestly understand the extent or intensity of a patient’s pain. Dr. Shankland sees these types of patients daily. He and his highly trained staff understand the frustrations, fears and concerns of patients suffering with undiagnosed facial pain.
If you or a love one is suffering with undiagnosed or unsuccessfully treated facial, jaw or head pain, make an appointment to consult with Dr. Shankland. Many of his colleagues worldwide refer patients to him for treatment, so if they trust he and his staff, you can as well!
