Orofacial Pain: Case Histories with Literature Reviews, An Issue of Dental Clinics of North America, 1st Edition
The diagnosis and management of orofacial pain remains a challenge for most practicing Dentists. In this issue of Dental Clinics, guest editors Drs. David A Keith, Michael Schatman, Ronald J. Kulich, and Steven J. Scrivani bring their considerable expertise to Orofacial Pain Case Histories with Literature Reviews. The case-based teaching method has become popular in professional education and this subject lends itself to this approach as dentists can learn how to formulate a differential diagnosis, develop a treatment plan and follow patients’ responses, thus providing information they can use on a daily basis. The literature review will allow the authors to expand on the case in a more traditional didactic style and cover the topic in a comprehensive manner. Top experts in the field cover key topics such as masticatory muscle pain; temporomandibular joint disc derangement: surgical treatment; temporomandibular joint arthropathy: nonsurgical management; fibromyalgia and temporomandibular disorders; burning mouth disorder; and more.
Contains 16 relevant, practice-oriented topics including chronic facial pain; persistent idiopathic dentoalveolar pain disorder; post-traumatic trigeminal neuropathic pain disorder; trigeminal neuralgia; pathology mimicking orofacial pain; cancer pain; and more.
