Head, face, and jaw pain can have a variety of origins, and include a wide spectrum of problems, with an equally wide range of treatment options. 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. The first stage is an accurate diagnosis, and this begins with collecting vital health information through our website, following this with a comprehensive examination, and collecting x-rays and other imaging as necessary and consultation with Dr. Wilk.

Education is a very important part of the process, as many of these disorders cannot be entirely “fixed”. So the more you understand about your problem the better you will be able to manage it.

Once a diagnosis has been established, Dr. Wilk will review an individualized treatment plan aimed at the most conservative and direct approach. Many patients are treated with specific oral devices worn in the mouth at night, during the day, or both, to stabilize the joint and muscles. Medications may be prescribed and injections may be used to help facilitate improvement.
