This course will introduce the attendant to all aspects of orofacial pain. It will review the temporomandibular joint disorders (TMDs): arthrogenous and myogenous disorders, internal derangements, and other uncommon joint conditions, as well as neuropathic and neurovascular conditions. This session will cover the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management of these orofacial pain disorders. In addition, this course will review the relationships between myogenous and arthrogenous disorders, non-odontogenic sources of toothache, headaches, and cervical pain.
