The Stanford Facial Pain Program offers an interdisciplinary approach to evaluating, diagnosing, treating, and rehabilitating the various disorders that can cause chronic pain in the face, mouth and head.
Our team of physicians, dentists, psychologists, and physical therapists work together to develop a complete, comprehensive, individualized treatment program. This tailored program focuses on medical management, procedural interventions and lifestyle changes to provide maximum pain relief and help sufferers cope with the debilitating effects of chronic facial pain.
Facial pain is pain perceived in the head, face, and/or mouth. It can be caused by diseases or disorders affecting the mouth and face, but it can also arise as a result of problems in the nervous system, or as referred pain that arises from conditions elsewhere in the body but is felt in the head or mouth.
To determine the best treatment option for you, we begin by pinpointing the source of the pain.
