Brings together guidance and information on the rational use of medications for the treatment of chronic orofacial pain.
Focusing on clinically relevant information throughout and aiming itself squarely at the needs of dentists and other clinicians working directly with orofacial pain, the book covers the use of oral, injectable and topical medications for managing neuropathic and musculoskeletal pain, headache, and uncommon orofacial pain disorders. Useful features, such as discussion of the top 60 medications prescribed for orofacial pain, are integrated with comprehensive coverage of drug types, pharmacolegal issues, and the interaction of medication management with other treatment strategies.
