"Over the years I’ve friends and family have bad experiences when having their wisdom teeth removed. Due to this I was a little worried when my daughter needed the procedure. Thankfully she was in good hands with Dr. Eric Ringer and his staff. Every thing went well but I really appreciated him checking up on her several hours after the procedure on a Friday night. He was genuinely interested in making sure everything was ok. I highly recommend his office. "- J.H. / Healthgrades / Feb 19, 2022
Who Should Seek Care for Head, Neck, or Facial Pain?
Anybody experiencing significant discomfort in their head, neck, or face could qualify for orofacial pain treatment. If orofacial pain is negatively impacting your life and preventing you from living happily and normally, we encourage you to contact our Colorado office so our team of skilled doctors can pinpoint the cause of your discomfort and provide you with options to manage and treat your symptoms. If you experience knocked-out teeth, jaw injuries, or oral lacerations, it's important to have your facial and oral structures evaluated by a professional to ensure that there are no other underlying conditions. While orofacial pain can be caused by trauma, it could also be brought on by temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), sleep disorders, burning mouth syndrome, nervous system disorders, certain medications or environmental factors, and more. During your one-on-one consultation at our facility, a member of our team will evaluate your unique condition, identify the cause of your discomfort, and formulate a treatment plan to regain your health and well-being.

What Happens After Orofacial Pain Treatment?
The follow-up protocol for your orofacial pain treatment will depend on your unique situation. You may be asked to return to our Colorado office so our doctors can continue to monitor your head, neck, and facial structures and assess your progress or any recurring symptoms. Depending on your individual needs, we may work with other specialists and your general dentist to ensure that you receive the comprehensive care you need to manage your condition.
