Pain management has become a significant part of our healthcare system. Due to the complex nature of these pain patients there is a need to better understand the sub-specialties within the broader field of pain management. Orofacial pain and dysfunction is an area that has long been associated with difficult and complex pain patients. Various disorders fall under the scope of orofacial pain including: temporomandibular disorder (TMD), neuralgia, neuropathic pain, oromandibular dystonia and headache. It is crucial to have a proper working differential diagnosis while treating these individuals. Treatment plans usually include: pharmacological management, appliance therapy, physical therapy, surgical therapy (injections) and home care.
Various orofacial pain disorders like trigeminal neuralgia and trigeminal neuropathic pain may manifest in the intra-oral region and replicate odontogenic pain complaints. These disorders may be peripherally and/or centrally mediated and should be ruled out in order to avoid incorrect diagnoses and unnecessary treatments. Current evidence based diagnosis and treatment protocols will be discussed for these complex disorders.


1. To conduct a thorough orofacial pain consult.
2. To become familiar with various orofacial pain disorders that mimic pain of odontogenic origin.
3. To be able to differentially diagnose between trigeminal neuralgia, trigeminal neuropathic pain, myofascial pain syndrome, and atypical facial pain.

4. To be able to treat these various orofacial pain disorders.
