It relates not only to treatment of impacted teeth, facial pain, misaligned jaws, facial trauma, oral cancers, jaw cysts, and tumors but also to facial cosmetic surgery and placement of dental and facial implants. This specialty is evolving alongside advancements in technology and instrumentation. Volume 1 has topped 132,000 chapter downloads so far, and Volume 2 is being downloaded at the same pace! Volume 3 is basically the sequel to Volumes 1 and 2; 93 specialists from nine countries contributed to 32 chapters providing comprehensive coverage of advanced topics in OMF surgery.
Introduction to orofacial pain -- General assessment of the orofacial pain patient -- Diagnostic classification of orofacial pain -- Vascular and nonvascular intracranial causes of orofacial pain -- Primary headache disorders -- Neuropathic pain -- Intraoral pain disorders -- Differential diagnosis and management considerations of temporomandibular disorders -- Cervical spinal disorders and headaches -- Extracranial and systemic causes of head and facial pain -- Sleep and orofacial pain -- Axis II : biobehavioral considerations
This cutting-edge book is a quick reference guide to the evidence-based evaluation, diagnosis, and management of the broad spectrum of orofacial disorders. Each chapter is devoted to a particular disease or disorder and presents advances in our understanding of the condition, the most recent evaluation and diagnostic strategies, and up-to-date treatment approaches. In addition, strategies for integration of care into routine dental practice are explained, and information provided on how to comprehensively diagnose and manage orofacial disorders. The coverage encompasses the latest technological advances in the field, such as novel pharmaceuticals, diagnostic tools, gene transfer techniques, radiotherapy modalities, and a vast array of interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches including complementary and alternative therapies for orofacial disorders.Although the management of orofacial disorders is emerging as a distinct field of dentistry, many dentists and physicians are unfamiliar with recent advances in the care of patients with these disorders including orofacial pain, oral lesions and cancer, malodor, xerostomia, obstructive sleep apnea, bruxism and oral parafunctional behaviors, temporomandibular disorders, occlusal dysesthesias, orofacial neuropathic pains, and headaches. This book, written by world class experts, is deliberately geared to the level of understanding of a clinician. It will serve as an ideal evidence-based reference and source of specific clinical recommendations in daily practice.
Orofacial pain - defined as pain lasting over three months in the mouth or face - is increasing in prevelance, with approximately 7% of the UK population having experienced it. It is currently managed by either dentists or general medical practitioners, both of whom have radically different approaches to treatment. While management of orofacial pain has improved quite dramatically over recent years, it is essential that dentists and general practitioners are aware of these advances and of the differences in their approaches. This concise handbook takes an evidence-based psychosocial approach to the management of patients with pain in the face or mouth and provides basic guidelines to facilitate care quickly in the clinical setting. The book will serve as a useful guide for dental practitioners, specialists in orofacial pain, trainee pain specialists, neurologists with an interest in pain, specialist pain nurses, as well as general medical practitioners.
Featuring contributions from more than 40 world-renowned researchers and clinicians in the temporomandibular disorder (TMD) and orofacial pain field, this comprehensive and clinically oriented book presents current and emerging evidence-based research on TMDs.
OROFACIAL PAIN AND HEADACHE is a timely, comprehensive and instructive addition to the pain literature; in particular the important and truly multidisciplinary area of orofacial pain. Based on their extensive clinical experience and a thorough understanding of pain mechanisms specific to the trigeminal system, the editors, Yair Sharav and Rafael Benoliel, have integrated knowledge from the areas of headache and orofacial pain and have succinctly explained common mechanisms involved in the two phenomena, with important implications for pain diagnosis and management. Internationally renowned editors and contributor team Integrated approach to the diagnosis and treatment of oral and facial pain syndromes as well as common primary headaches A thorough review of the four majorclinical entities of orofacial pain: acute dental, neurovascular, musculoskeletal and neuropathic Comprehensive coverage of the pharmacotherapy of acute and chronic pain Chapters on the psychological, neurosurgical and otolaryngological aspects of orofacial pain An in depth discussion of facial pain and headaches secondary to medical co-morbidities Exploration of complementary and alternative methods of pain control including acupuncture, food additives and hypnosis
Divided into four parts, the classification criteria as well as etiologic factors and pathogenic mechanisms of headache and different types of facial pain are examined in the first part of the book. The second part deals with general problems concerning diagnosis and choice of treatment. The last two parts analyze the individual pathologies at the root of headache (part three) and facial pain (part four): A wide variety of classic and difficult clinical cases are presented. The book can therefore be regarded as a study and consultation manual for neurologists, headache specialists, algologists, anaesthetists, dentists, internists, general practitioners, and all those interested in the problem of headache and facial pain.
"Pain is a preoccupation in dentistry, but the dentist's role has expanded beyond the treatment of dental pain to being one of the most involved in the treatment of orofacial pain. Orofacial Pain: A Guide to Medications and Management guides readers through the rational use of medications for the treatment of chronic orofacial pain, including oral, injectable and topical medications. It also provides relevant information about treatment choices for managing neuropathic and musculoskeletal pain, headache and uncommon orofacial pain disorders"--Provided by publisher.
"This evidence-based comprehensive volume on bruxism provides answers to many questions arising in everyday dental practice. Researchers, students, and specialists will benefit from the in-depth analysis of the subject and the extensive, up-to-date bibliographies." "The book is divided into three sections: the first deals with bruxism knowledge and guidelines for diagnosis, sleep physiology, the main etiological theories, the influence of peripheral and emotional factors, movement disorders, and bruxism in children; the central section is devoted to the effects of bruxism on the different masticatory system components, including the noxious action of bruxism on dental pulp, periodontal ligament, TMJ, muscles, and its relationship with pain; and the final section encompasses different aspects related to the treatment of bruxism, including the pharmacological effects of certain central-action drugs and some peripheral-action drugs, such as the botulinum toxin, the treatment of bruxism through dental implants, and the recommended dental materials." "Bruxism: Theory and Practice is devoted exclusively to bruxism and its treatment, an eagerly anticipated compilation that will interest general practitioners and specialists alike."--Book jacket.
