Odontalgia in Vascular Orofacial Pain


Pages: 196-200
PMID: 10823032

Attempts at alleviating the pain by means of root canal treatment had failed in previous, similar episodes, and pain and pulpal hyperalgesia had shifted to other locations.

A prophylactic attempt with nifedipine, a calcium channel blocker, failed to alleviate the pain. This diagnostic entity and possible therapeutic approaches are discussed.
