Bell's orofacial pains:The clinical management of orofacial pain
Stereotactic Radiosurgery is not mentioned anywhere, and other principles of treatment that are not considered as first line in the UK are described in detail. Overall though, this is a well written text that will provide answers to many questions.
It certainly has its place with the specialist, but I feel there are better texts out there to cater for the needs of the GDP. To obtain permission to re-use content from this article visit RightsLink. Article metrics.
Advanced Search Orofacial pain is one the main reasons for patients to seek treatment. Pain in the face and mouth has a significant psychological meaning since a good interplay of orofacial structures is essential for correct jaw function, communication and body image.
Unfortunately, diagnosis and treatment of orofacial pain is not an easy task. This textbook represents a good start for those interested in orofacial pain conditions.
It is an extended revision of Dr Welden Bell's classic text, reporting the latest findings related to pain supported by an updated text including a comprehensive list of references. The clinician is guided throughout the diagnostic process with the analysis of the underlying neural mechanisms encompassing peripheral and central sensitization, the pain-modulatory system, and the genetic and molecular processes.
Orofacial pain management: current perspectives
In addition, the description of 35 relevant clinical cases helps the practising clinician to better understand the flow chart for correct diagnosis and effective treatment of orofacial pain conditions. Temporomandibular disorders TMD are the most prevalent orofacial pain conditions for which patients seek treatment. Temporomandibular disorders include a number of clinical problems that involve the masticatory musculature, the temporomandibular joint TMJ or both. Neurovascular disorders, such as primary headaches, can present as chronic orofacial pain, such as in the case of facial migraine, where the pain is localized in the second and third division of the trigeminal nerve.
Together, these disorders of the trigeminal system impact the quality of life of the sufferer dramatically.
A multidisciplinary pain management approach should be considered for the optimal treatment of orofacial pain disorders including both non-pharmacological and pharmacological modalities. Keywords: pain, orofacial, neuropathic, TMD, trigeminal, headache Orofacial pain disorders Orofacial pain disorders are highly prevalent and debilitating conditions involving the head, face, and neck. These conditions represent a challenge to the clinician since the orofacial region is complex and therefore, pain can arise from many sources.
The clinician needs to have solid knowledge of the pain conditions that arise from these structures for proper diagnosis and a multidisciplinary approach of management is strongly recommended. The orofacial pain classification as outlined by Okeson 1 , 2 is divided into physical Axis 1 and psychological Axis 2 conditions.
Psychological conditions include mood and anxiety disorders. This review focuses on the current perspectives in orofacial pain management, and only TMD, neuropathic pains, and headaches will be discussed.
For a more comprehensive discussion about pathophysiology and diagnosis of the disorders depicted in this classification and other painful disorders arising from the head, face, and neck, other texts should be reviewed. Treatment planning depend on various factors, including the chief complaint, medical history, presenting symptoms, examination, and diagnosis. In the past, TMD cases have sometimes been considered to be difficult to diagnose and problematic to treat; however, thanks to ongoing research in orofacial pain and pain management, clinicians are able to use a more standardized classification and better diagnostic and therapeutic methods to offer patients a wide range of treatment modalities with higher success rates.
Natural history and epidemiology of TMD Most epidemiological studies clearly demonstrate that TMD symptoms are more commonly seen in women than in men, 1 and that many symptoms seem to arise in adolescence or the early twenties and may continue intermittently, well into middle age; however, TMD symptomatology does get better with time, supporting a conservative management approach.
Rasmussen 7 found that most cases of a clicking TMJ did not evolve into an open or closed locking state. Rasmussen noted that, in the natural progression of internal derangement, acute TMD symptoms lasted a mean of 5.
In a more recent study, the presence of degenerative joint disorders was found to be the discriminating factor in two different age subgroups: patients with a mean age range of 52 years presented a prevalence of crepitus, while patients with a mean age range of 38 years did not.
Disc displacements with reduction may present as a painful or non-painful click.
Disc displacements without reduction may present with a painful limitation at opening. Retrodiscitis and TMJ subluxation may present symptomatology when the pain is a result of inflammation arising from the retrodiscal tissues or capsulitis or synovitis processes. Osteoarthritic changes can originate in the TMJ articular surfaces and, when they are influenced by a systemic disease, can become aggressive and progressive, such as in the case of polyarthritis. Muscular disorders Myalgia usually presents as a dull aching pain due to muscle injury or strain.Patients with suspected neuropathic pain should be subjected to evaluation of the somatosensory sensitivity in the painful region.
The third section deals thoroughly with each orofacial pain disorder and underlines the differential diagnosis and management options for each condition. However, the many pages dedicated to uncommon manifestations of pain are perhaps at the expense of the ones that the general practitioner is much more likely to encounter on a regular basis.

There are also neurofunctional and neurodegenerative changes in the brain in patients with chronic pain, supporting the notion of chronic pain as a disease 2 , 3. J Endod.

The remaining three studies evaluated postural training, manual therapy and exercise, which demonstrated significant benefit.
