Course Description: Tuesday September 8, 2020

One in six dental patients experience orofacial pain. Most often, this pain presents as a toothache. However, not all toothaches are caused by an odontogenic source. Unfortunately, these types of pain sources can be perplexing for both the patient and the dentist. Hence, patients often see several specialists and irreversible treatments before obtaining an accurate diagnosis. This course will provide a comprehensive review of non-odontogenic sources of tooth pain. Attendees will learn how to differentiate between odontogenic and non-odontogenic toothaches, the appropriate examination methods, diagnostic tests, and management of non-odontogenic toothaches. 

Part 1 of this course will review the pain mechanisms involved in orofacial pain and describe myofascial courses of non-odontogenic tooth pain and trigeminal neuralgia. 
Part 2 will review the condition, painful post-traumatic trigeminal neuropathy and neurovascular sources of orofacial pain. 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES, PART I:
Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
1) Describe the pain mechanisms involved in orofacial pain. 
2) Describe myofascial sources of nonodontogenic sources of tooth pain.
3) Define trigeminal neuralgia and how it presents as tooth pain.
4) Implement diagnostic techniques in the evaluation of myofascial pain and trigeminal neuralgia.
5) Describe management strategies for myofascial pain and trigeminal neuralgia.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES, PART II:
Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
6) Describe the presentation of painful post-traumatic trigeminal neuropathy.
7) Describe neurovascular sources of non-odontogenic toothache. 
8) Implement diagnostic techniques in the evaluation of painful post-traumatic trigeminal neuropathy and neurovascular orofacial pain. 
9) Describe management strategies for painful post-traumatic trigeminal neuropathy and neurovascular orofacial pain.
