Updated to reflect the latest research in orofacial pain, this revised edition of Dr Welden Bell's classic text is designed to assist the practicing dentist in managing orofacial pain disorders, from diagnosis to treatment selection. It presents an updated classification system for orofacial pain disorders, especially in the complicated area of neuropathic pain conditions, and describes the differential diagnostic and therapeutic considerations for each classification. Many new photographs illustrate the concepts and techniques that are discussed, and a new section on injection techniques for the diagnosis and management of orofacial pain has been added. The book also includes 35 case reports to help the clinician better understand orofacial pain disorders and how to treat them effectively.
