Quality Resource Guide: Assessing Orofacial Pain is organized by MetLife and will be held from Nov 01, 2016 - Dec 31, 2020. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.0 continuing education credits.

Course Description:
Orofacial pain encompasses a wide range of potential disorders usually separated into three primary categories: musculoskeletal, neurovascular and neuropathic. The fourth edition of this Guide presents straightforward guidelines for the dental professional to categorize a patient's orofacial pain by identifying the quality of the pain and history, and performing a clinical exam. A series of clinical approaches are discussed to identify, or rule out, factors that may be contributing to, or exacerbating, the pain.

Educational Objectives:
Following this unit of instruction, the learner should be able to:
• Describe the primary categories for orofacial pain.
• Understand how local anesthetic challenges may be used to identify a patient’s true source of pain.
• Discuss how to evaluate whether sinus congestion is contributing to a patient’s orofacial pain.
• Understand how referred pain patterns may be used to help determine whether a patient’s perceived pain is coming from a different location.
• Realize masticatory and/or cervical pain may contribute to a patient’s headache.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
