Facial pain can have various causes, ranging from minor issues to more serious underlying conditions. The following are common causes of facial pain:

Dental Problems:

  • Toothache: Cavities, dental infections, or gum disease can lead to severe tooth pain.
  • Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorders: Dysfunction of the jaw joint can cause pain in the jaw, face, and temples.

Sinus Infections (Sinusitis):

  • Inflammation of the sinuses due to infection can cause pain and pressure in the face, particularly around the eyes, nose, and cheeks.

Migraines and Headaches:

  • Migraines and tension headaches can cause pain in the forehead, temples, and around the eyes.

Trigeminal Neuralgia:

  • A disorder affecting the trigeminal nerve, causing intense, stabbing pain in the face. Episodes can be triggered by touch or movement.

Facial Neuralgias:

  • Other neuralgias, such as glossopharyngeal neuralgia or occipital neuralgia, can cause sharp, shooting pains in the face.

Cluster Headaches:

  • Intense, stabbing headaches that often occur in clusters, causing severe pain around the eye and temple.

Ear Infections:

  • Infections of the ear, especially the middle ear, can cause referred pain to the face.

Eye Conditions:

  • Conditions such as glaucoma, eye infections, or eye strain can cause pain around the eyes.

Facial Trauma:

  • Injuries to the face, including fractures or soft tissue injuries, can cause localized pain.

Shingles (Herpes Zoster):

  • Reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus can cause a painful rash on the face and forehead.

Oral and Maxillofacial Conditions:

  • Inflammation or infections of the oral cavity, jaw, or salivary glands can lead to facial pain.

Chronic Sinusitis:

  • Persistent inflammation of the sinuses can result in long-term facial pain and pressure.

Neck Problems:

  • Issues with the cervical spine or neck muscles can sometimes cause referred pain to the face.

Facial Nerve Disorders:

Psychogenic Factors:

  • Emotional stress, anxiety, or depression can contribute to facial pain, especially in conditions like tension-type headaches.

When to Seek Medical Attention: Persistent or severe facial pain should be evaluated by a healthcare professional. Immediate medical attention is necessary if facial pain is accompanied by:

Severe headache.
