by Yair Sharav and Rafael Benoliel
  • Soft Cover
Highly Commended at BMA Medical Book Competition 2009. 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. This book is an invaluable and unique resource for dental practitioners – both qualified and in training – and pain specialists from all fields, and for basic and clinical pain scientists who are interested in an up-to-date and comprehensive review of the diagnostic and management issues in the field of orofacial pain. *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 Reviews "This textbook is a joy to read! The editors have to be congratluated for presenting two broad topics, orofacial pain and headaches, in one well-structured and nicely illustrated textbook." Journal of Orofacial Pain, Issue 2/09 "This is a very interesting book. There is a considerable overlap between headaches and face pains that present to dentists and maxillofacial surgeons and neurologists. This book considers these clinical problems primarily from the dental/maxillofacial perspective. The ‘classic’ neurological conditions, migraine, trigeminal neuralgia and the trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias are clearly described and discussed, with some very useful clinical vignettes."
