The understanding and management of orofacial pain is a complex problem. This complexity arises from the multitude of problems that can be associated with the head and neck. In order to effectively manage orofacial pains the clinician must be able to recognize the multiple disorders that may present as pain in the head and neck structures. The clinician must also gain an understanding of the neuromechanisms that create the experience of pain. This presentation will be divided into two parts. The first part (Thursday May 14, AM?) will emphasize the mechanisms and clinical manifestations of various orofacial pain problems. A classification for orofacial pain will be presented with significant emphasis placed on pain problems that are commonly seen in the dental office, such as toothache of non-dental origin and temporomandibular disorders.

The second part of this program (Saturday May 16, PM?) will present management considerations for a variety of orofacial pain conditions. Specific emphasis will be placed on differentiating temporomandibular disorders from other orofacial pain problems and toothache of non dental origin.

What you will learn:

* Normal neurophysiology of orofacial pain.
* The difference between nociception, pain, suffering and pain behavior.
* Mechanisms of referred pain.
* An effective way to differentiate temporomandibular disorders from other orofacial pain problems.
* Seven sources of toothache that are not caused by the dental structures.
* How to differentiate true dental toothache from non-dental toothache.
* Etiologic and therapeutic considerations of masticatory muscle pain and intracapsular TM joint pain.
