Orofacial Pain: Guidelines for Assessment, Diagnosis, and Management, Fifth Edition

Edited by Reny de Leeuw and Gary D. Klasser

This book is an invaluable resource for all health care professionals who evaluate and treat patients with orofacial pain and face the daunting task of “keeping up with the literature” in the rapidly emerging arena of pain management in clinical practice. This new edition continues to emphasize evidence-based knowledge and, for the first time, offers a summary of key points at the beginning of each chapter. Other important changes include an entirely new chapter on sleep and its relationship to pain and well-being; new imaging guidelines for the diagnosis of headache, TMD, and neuropathic pain; a new section on dysesthesias related to neuropathic pain; comprehensive descriptions of SUNCT/SUNA in the chapter devoted to primary headache disorders; and recommendations for quantitative sensory testing, narcotic agreement, and brief screening questionnaires used in patient assessment. Most important, the differential diagnosis and TMD chapters reflect the recommendations of the long-awaited RDC/TMD taxonomy, which will have a significant impact on clinical practice.

Treatment of TMDs:
Bridging the Gap Between
Advances in Research and Clinical Patient Management

Edited by Charles S. Greene and Daniel M. Laskin

The mechanism by which nociceptive impulses are initiated, transmitted, and perceived as pain is not unique to the masticatory system. This means that much of the information discovered about musculoskeletal disorders through recent research tools and innovative experimental designs can be directly or indirectly applied to the TMJ. However, many dental clinicians are unaware of this type of information because it is presented mainly in medical publications or nonclinical scientific journals. This book bridges the gap for the clinician, applying the latest scientific research to the clinical treatment of temporomandibular disorders (TMDs), focusing on the anatomy, biochemistry, neurophysiology, and psychology of the common TMDs. Each chapter discusses present knowledge in the particular field before explaining how it may apply to the diagnosis and treatment of TMD patients. In addition, every chapter provides an overview of current new research in the field and its potential for changing future patient care. This book is sure to transform the way clinicians think about TMDs and approach TMD treatment.


Sensory Mechanisms of Orofacial Pain • Pathophysiology of Masticatory Myofascial Pain • Pathophysiology of Intracapsular Inflammation and Degeneration • Comorbid Conditions • Sleep and Pain • Genetic Determinants • Quantitative Sensory Testing • Predicting Treatment Responsiveness • Biomechanics and Mechanobiology of the TMJ • Finite Element Analysis of the TMJ • TMJ Lubrication • Imaging of the TMJ • Imaging Pain • Synovial Fluid Analysis and Biomarkers • TMJ Tissue Engineering • Injection Treatment • Pharmacologic Management

Bruxism: Theory and Practice

Edited by Daniel A. Paesani

This comprehensive evidence-based guide to bruxism provides answers to many questions arising in everyday dental practice. The first part reviews general bruxism knowledge as well as guidelines for diagnosis, sleep physiology, etiology, peripheral and emotional factors, movement disorders, and bruxism in children. The second part is devoted to the effects of bruxism on the different components of the masticatory system and explores its relationship to pain. The final part addresses the various aspects of bruxism treatment—both pharmacologic and clinical management—as well as particulars of restoration specific to the bruxing patient, including recommended dental materials, considerations for use of implant-supported prostheses, and an overview of complex oral restoration.

Applied Occlusion
(Book/DVD-ROM set)

Robert Wassell, Amar Naru,
Jimmy Steele, and Francis Nohl

This best-selling book adopts a clinical approach to understanding occlusion and demystifies it for dentists and students. An accompanying narrated DVD-ROM provides 3D animations that clarify the effects of jaw movement. Comprehensive clinical videos demonstrate the process of investigating and managing real-life occlusal problems. This is an essential guide to understanding occlusion.

Sleep Apnea: Treatment of
Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders
in Dentistry

Uwe Bussmeier, Uwe Fremder, and
Jürgen Langenhan

This three-part DVD provides a complete guide to treating the two main causative bite relationships associated with sleep apnea—the edge-to-edge bite and the deep bite. A mandibular advancement device will not solve the problem in every case, but it does help many patients improve their quality of life and prevent serious complications of the disease. Successful treatment of sleep apnea requires the systematic teamwork of specialists and a sound knowledge of the disease.

Bell’s Oral and Facial Pain (Formerly Bell’s Orofacial Pain), Seventh Edition

Jeffrey P. Okeson

Pain, especially chronic pain, is a major health care problem, a fact that has precipitated a recent dramatic expansion in pain-related research efforts. This revised edition of Dr Welden Bell’s classic text has been updated to incorporate the latest findings from these studies, including advanced understanding of the neurophysiology and central processing of pain and the resulting changes to diagnostic, classification, and treatment guidelines. To assist clinicians in the difficult and often complicated task of managing patients suffering from oral and facial pain, this textbook provides documented information concerning pain and pain behavior so that one may better understand what pain is, how it behaves, and how it might best be managed; develops a useful classification of orofacial pain disorders; offers practical diagnostic criteria by which the different orofacial pain disorders can be identified on a clinical level; and suggests guidelines for the effective management of patients who suffer from pain in the region of the mouth and face. The concepts and techniques discussed are supplemented with case reports as well as new, full-color photographs and illustrations to help the clinician better understand orofacial pain disorders and how to treat them effectively.


Defining the Problem • Neural Anatomy • Neurophysiology of Nociception • Central Processing of Pain • Processing Pain at the Supraspinal Level • Various Clinical Presentations of Pain • Category Classification of Orofacial Pains • Pain Diagnosis • General Considerations in Managing Orofacial Pains • Cutaneous and Mucogingival Pains • Dental Pains • Pains of Muscle Origin • TMJ Pains • Other Musculoskeletal Pains • Visceral Pains • Vascular and Neurovascular Pains • Neuropathic Pains • Psychologic Factors

Sleep Medicine for Dentists:
A Practical Overview

Edited by Gilles J. Lavigne,
Peter A. Cistulli, and Michael T. Smith

This concise clinical handbook educates dental practitioners seeking to understand, recognize, and manage disorders such as sleep apnea, sleep bruxism, and chronic pain, which often interfere with or intrude into sleep and are critically important to the practice of dentistry. Leading experts in medicine and dentistry articulate and guide readers in performing the specific responsibilities of dental practitioners, such as routinely examining patients for the risk of sleep-disordered breathing; providing guidance and appropriate referrals to patients who report snoring, sleepiness, and morning headache; managing the tooth damage or pain generated by bruxism; kno wing when to prescribe oral appliances and understanding their associated risks; and collaborating closely with maxillofacial surgeons or ENT specialists when surgery is indicated. This unique book is a rapid source of practical information for students, practicing dentists, and researchers who wish to expand their knowledge base on this important topic.
