Because facial pain includes a wide spectrum of conditions, the first stage is an accurate diagnosis. This begins with collecting information. We enable patients to complete forms through our website, and follow this with a comprehensive interview at the office with Dr. Goldberg. Listening to the patient and understanding what he or she is experiencing is a critical phase of therapy. Dr. Goldberg will then typically perform a specialized exam and collect x-rays and other imaging as necessary. We are proud to offer the most advanced technology in the region for computer analysis of jaw function.
Our goal is to determine the anatomy underlying the discomfort, determine what factors are causing or aggravating it, and provide ways to improve the situation. In many cases, the body will improve or adapt if obstacles are removed and healing is encouraged.
