Facial (Dental) Pain - Trigeminal Neuralgia
The Miami Neuroscience Center at Larkin specializes in the treatment of Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN), a physically and mentally devastating disease resulting in intense pain that is usually felt on one side of the face or jaw. It is often called the suicide disease because it causes extreme pain, which is described as being hit repeatedly with a hot poker or an electric shock. Only affecting 0.0344% of the U.S. population (around 112,556 people a year) it is commonly misdiagnosed as a psychological or dental problem.
Trigeminal Neuralgia Causes
Occurs when the trigeminal nerve, which is the largest cranial nerve responsible for sensory and motor functions in the face, is compressed and becomes inflamed. It can be triggered by something as simple as touching your face, eating, or brushing your teeth. Time between episodes can vary from seconds to hours or there can be days or months between attacks. Over time, attacks often become more severe. Patients with TN often experience depression because these chronic pain episodes make every day activities impossible. While TN can affect people of any age, it tends to occur in older people with women more likely to be afflicted than men.
