“When Dental Pain is Not of Dental Origin"
Facial pain frequently is thought to be caused by dental problems. After adequate dental evaluation and pathology is ruled out, it is helpful to know the possible causes. After treating over 500 patients with this situation, I have learned a lot on the diagnosis and treatment of the different causes. This information can help you in your practice and knowledge base.
Major Topics:
Trigeminal Neuritis
Atypical facial pain
Eagle's Syndrome
Learning Objectives: 
  1. Different etiologies of facial pain
  2. How to diagnose and treat Trigeminal neuritis presenting with dental symptoms.
  3. When to consider Eagle's syndrome as the medical problem.
