When it comes to mechanisms, diagnosis, and management of acute and chronic orofacial pain, no book is more comprehensive than Orofacial Pain. With 54 leading pain specialists documenting the latest research advances and treatments, this book is the new standard resource for understanding, assessing, and managing all aspects of orofacial pain.
Orofacial Pain’s 24 chapters address the epidemiologic, socioeconomic, and psychological aspects of orofacial pain conditions as well as the mechanisms underlying orofacial pain revealed in recent studies in humans and animals.
Most other books on this topic focus on just one or two aspects of orofacial pain—and nearly all with only dental students or clinicians in mind. Orofacial Pain provides the most up-to-date, complete, and integrated coverage of advances in research and new evidence. It is must reading not only for dental clinicians but also for pain scientists and specialists, neurologists, and other clinicians.
