Pain Management Baton Rouge

Pain Management Baton Rouge Persistent or intermittent pain has a dramatically negative effect on quality of life, from mood to productivity. Head neck, and facial pain is particularly troublesome. Most individuals who suffer with these conditions never seek the services of a dentist with specialized training and experience. Dr. Kurt LeJeune utilizes the latest advances in pain management to effectively treat patients in Baton Rouge and the tristate area.

The great imposter

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction is called “the great imposter” because it mimics symptoms of many other conditions:
  • Changes in vision
  • Discomfort or limitation in opening and closing the mouth
  • Earaches, stuffiness, and ringing in ears
  • Headaches
  • Jaw clicking or popping
  • Movement disorders
  • Neck pain
  • Pain in jaw muscles
  • Soreness in the jaw area, possibly extending to the face
Medical treatment generally addresses symptoms with anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxers, pain medications, and even anti-depressants. While those drugs may dull the pain, they do nothing to resolve the cause of the problem. In addition, medications may have side effects that cause further life quality issues.

Personalized treatment

Dr. LeJeune takes as much time as necessary to understand the nature, timing, and severity of your pain. He uses advanced diagnostic technologies to evaluate the bite and mouth function.

Then he designs an individualized treatment plan that may include:
  • Infrared therapy to soothe inflamed muscles and speed tissue healing.
  • Pain management with microvolt electrical stimulus.
  • Cold laser therapy to reduce pain and promote healing.
  • Rapid pulse bio-stimulation laser treatment for immediate pain relief and tissue energization.
  • Prolo therapy, injections that stimulate natural repair of ligaments.
  • Trigger point injections to reduce muscle hypersensitivity and inflammation.
  • Therapeutic injections of Botox to relax muscle contractions.
You don’t have to live with chronic head, neck, and facial pain. A safe, effective solution begins with a call to Cypress Dental in Baton Rouge, LA at (225) 248-8400.
