|Description:||This book is designed for undergraduates through to experienced clinicians in dentistry, medicine and physiotherapy, in addition to the general public suffering from orofacial pain. The scope of orofacial pain is discussed with reference to prevalence, gender effects of the female predisposition to orofacial pain, and the molecular and biological changes that occur in the transition from acute to chronic pain. Information is given on appropriate pharmacological tests and treatments. There are detailed patient cases at the end of each chapter that teaches the reader how to identify relevant physical changes and psychometric tests to measure levels of depression, anxiety and stress in the clinical situation. It is a comprehensive evidenced based book with new information on neuropathic orofacial (trigeminal) pain derived from over 200 patients from the Pain Management and Research Centre, University of Sydney. The book emphasises the biopsychosocial model of pain with associated distress and suffering. The book is 302 pages and contains 18 colour plates, 7 grayscale plates, 57 figures and tables, and is extensively referenced.|
