Orofacial Pains

Description

Pain can severely influence the quality of life and is one of the most common causes of seeking medical consultation. Orofacial pains consist of a broad range of nociceptive, inflammatory, and neural-borne symptoms perceived at the area.

This special issue seeks to cover orofacial pains that are more relevant to the field of dentistry. Investigators are cordially invited to submit their original research or review articles regarding the etiology of orofacial pains and new methods for alleviating them. Higher priority would be given to papers dealing with temporomandibular pain and dysfunctions as well as pains perceived during or after dental treatments such as orthodontic, periodontic, and endodontic treatments or postsurgical pains. Also, the effect of hypnotherapy on the alleviation of orofacial pain would be of special interest.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Pains perceived in the oral cavity (e.g., tooth pain and burning mouth syndrome) and at or around the temporomandibular joint
  • Pains caused by dental procedures
  • The association and clinical overlap between orofacial pains and other chronic pains, and what this means for those treating such conditions
  • The effects of hypnosis and other psychosocial interventions, for example, placebos and cognitive behavioural interventions, on orofacial pains
