  • Up-to-date guide to clinical diagnosis and management of orofacial pain
  • Edited and written by cross-section of experts, including pain physicians, oral medicine specialists, and anesthesiologists
  • All common or important acute and chronic conditions
  • Guidance on classification
  • Detailed instructions on proper history-taking and appropriate physical examinations and diagnostic tests

This is a practical guide to the evidence-based diagnosis and management of orofacial pain.  It  covers common clinical presentations of acute and chronic orofacial pain and summarizes clinically relevant neurobiology.

Because diagnosing orofacial pain can be a challenge, the book describes the appropriate history-taking methods, detailed examinations, and relevant tests that will help clinicians to work through the differential diagnosis.   Effective medical, surgical, and behavioral approaches are presented, and the importance of a multimodal approach is consistently emphasized throughout the book.  The target audience includes pain physicians, anesthesiologists, dentists, neurologists, nurse practitioners, and physician’s assistants.  ​
