Intractable pain following dental treatments is frustrating for the patient, and attempting to control such pain is a major challenge for the clinician. This pain can sometime occur in the absence of a noxious stimulus, persist beyond the usual healing time, or spread to normal teeth and anatomical structures adjacent or distant to the source of injury. The poor localization of pain can lead to misdiagnosis of its source and result in mistreatment, such as sequential endodontic treatment or even extraction of “innocent” teeth without significant improvement in patient’s comfort. During this session, the clinical manifestations of unusual pain following nerve injury will be presented. The basic mechanisms associated with the pathophysiology of neuropathic pains will be reviewed. Along with the attempt to use basic sciences to explain clinical phenomena, evidence-based management strategies proposed for neuropathic orofacial pain will also be discussed. An understanding of these issues is instrumental in the differential diagnosis and treatment of orofacial pain of endodontic and non-dental origin.
