Steven B. Syrop, DDS
Board-Certified Specialist in Orofacial Pain
When you’re in constant pain, every part of your life is affected – your social life, your professional life, and your family life. If you have jaw pain, facial pain, headaches, or other TMJ or Orofacial Pain symptoms, your pain can be persistent, intense, and frightening – especially when you don’t know what’s causing it.
Facial pain, one of the most debilitating forms of pain, is often caused by over-used jaw muscles, an overloaded jaw joint, or nerves that fire and mimic dental pain. Many medical conditions can contribute to facial pain, such as arthritis and autoimmune disease. Stress can exacerbate pain problems no matter what their cause and can cause more tooth grinding and jaw clenching. The good news is that the majority of patients heal and heal well.
For over three decades, Dr. Steven Syrop has been dedicated to helping people suffering from painful TMJ and Orofacial Pain problems get better. His caring and compassionate approach starts with getting to know you as a person and understanding how pain is affecting your life. His philosophy is “treat the person, not the pain,” and thousands of patients found hope and healing under his care.
Dr. Syrop has a conservative approach – instead of rushing into invasive or irreversible treatments, he believes in letting the body heal naturally. The overwhelming majority of patients who come to Dr. Syrop for care recover. When they realize he has seen their symptoms time and time again and they are not the sign of a serious medical condition, it gives them hope. And hope is the first step to healing.
