Orofacial pain - an update on diagnosis and management.

Authors:
S Ghurye R McMillan

Br Dent J 2017 Dec 27;223(9):639-647. Epub 2017 Oct 27.

Oral Medicine and Facial Pain, Eastman Dental Hospital, 256 Gray's Inn Road, London, WC1X 8LD, UK.

The diagnosis and management of orofacial pain may be challenging due to complex histories, pathophysiology and associated psychosocial co-morbidities such as depression and anxiety. Neuropathic facial pain conditions such as burning mouth syndrome (BMS), persistent idiopathic facial pain (PIFP), atypical odontalgia (AO) and trigeminal neuralgia (TN) require early recognition by primary care clinicians and referral to secondary care. Acute pain-related temporomandibular disorder (TMD) may be managed in the primary care setting, with identification of those at risk of developing chronic TMD receiving an early referral to secondary care.

Usefulness of an occlusal device in the treatment of medication overuse headache and persistent idiopathic facial pain: preliminary results.

Neurol Sci 2017 May;38(Suppl 1):57-61

Igea Healthcare Institute, Milan, Italy.

There is a debate in literature about the therapeutic usefulness of oral devices in patients suffering from Medication Overuse Headache (MOH) or in patients suffering from Persistent Idiopathic Facial Pain (PIFP). From the case histories of 3356 patients, referred to us with a diagnosis of chronic craniofacial pain for assessment of the eventual application of an occlusal device to correct an impaired neuromuscular relationship between the mandible and the maxilla, we selected, following the criteria of the International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD-3beta), two groups of patients suffering from MOH and PIFP. All patients of the two groups underwent a Kinesiographic exam and an EMG to evaluate the freeway space (FWS). Read More

Facial Pain Update: Advances in Neurostimulation for the Treatment of Facial Pain.

Curr Pain Headache Rep 2016 Apr;20(4):24

Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Craniofacial pain, including trigeminal neuralgia, trigeminal neuropathic pain, and persistent idiopathic facial pain, is difficult to treat and can have severe implications for suffering in patients afflicted with these conditions. In recent years, clinicians have moved beyond treating solely with pharmacological therapies, which are generally not very effective, and focused on new interventional pain procedures. These procedures have evolved as technology has advanced, and thus far, early results have demonstrated efficacy in small patient cohorts with a variety of craniofacial pain states. Read More

Reports of perceptual distortion of the face are common in patients with different types of chronic oro-facial pain.

J Oral Rehabil 2016 Jun 30;43(6):409-16. Epub 2016 Jan 30.

Section of Orofacial Pain and Jaw Function, Department of Dentistry, Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark.

Anecdotally, chronic oro-facial pain patients may perceive the painful face area as 'swollen'. Because there are no clinical signs, these self-reported 'illusions' may represent perceptual distortions and can be speculated to contribute to the maintenance of oro-facial pain. This descriptive study investigated whether chronic oro-facial pain patients experience perceptual distortions - a kind of body image disruption. Read More

Trigeminal and sphenopalatine ganglion stimulation for intractable craniofacial pain--case series and literature review.

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2016 Mar 7;158(3):513-20. Epub 2016 Jan 7.

Department of Neurosurgery, Kaiser Permanente-The Permanente Medical Group (TPMG), 1150 Veterans Blvd., 3rd Floor Tower, Redwood City, 94063, CA, USA.

Introduction: Facial pain is often debilitating and can be characterized by a sharp, stabbing, burning, aching, and dysesthetic sensation. Specifically, trigeminal neuropathic pain (TNP), anesthesia dolorosa, and persistent idiopathic facial pain (PIFP) are difficult diseases to treat, can be quite debilitating and an effective, enduring treatment remains elusive.

Methods: We retrospectively reviewed our early experience with stimulation involving the trigeminal and sphenopalatine ganglion stimulation for TNP, anesthesia dolorosa, and PIFP between 2010-2014 to assess the feasibility of implanting at these ganglionic sites. Read More

Pain Physician 2015 May-Jun;18(3):E403-9

University of Iowa, Dept. of Anesthesiology, Iowa City, Iowa.

Persistent idiopathic facial pain can be extremely difficult and significantly challenging to manage for the patient and the clinician. Pharmacological treatment of these painful conditions is not always successful. It has been suggested that the autonomic reflex plays an important role in the pathophysiology of headaches and facial neuralgia. Read More

An update on pathophysiological mechanisms related to idiopathic oro-facial pain conditions with implications for management.

J Oral Rehabil 2015 Apr 8;42(4):300-22. Epub 2014 Dec 8.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Institute of Dentistry, University of Turku, Turku, Finland.

Chronic oro-facial pain conditions such as persistent idiopathic facial pain (PIFP), atypical odontalgia (AO) and burning mouth syndrome (BMS), usually grouped together under the concept of idiopathic oro-facial pain, remain a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. Lack of understanding of the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms of these pain conditions is one of the important reasons behind the problems in diagnostic and management. During the last two decades, neurophysiological, psychophysical, brain imaging and neuropathological methods have been systematically applied to study the trigeminal system in idiopathic oro-facial pain.

Staged Bilateral Nucleus Caudalis DREZ Lesioning for Persistent Idiopathic Facial Pain: Exceptional Case Report.

Turk Neurosurg 2017 ;27(2):316-320

Ankara University, School of Medicine, Department of Neurosurgery, Ankara, Turkey.

Persistent idiopathic facial pain (PIFP) is a rare but challenging type of facial pain. How to manipulate such a problem becomes more contentious in cases with bilateral complaints. In situations when conventional treatments fail to reduce the pain, some treatment options like nucleus caudalis dorsal root entry zone (DREZ) lesioning shine as valuable means of managing such intractable problems.

Field-testing of the ICHD-3 beta diagnostic criteria for classical trigeminal neuralgia.

Cephalalgia 2015 Apr 22;35(4):291-300. Epub 2014 Jul 22.

Danish Headache Center, Department of Neurology, Glostrup Hospital

Introduction: We aimed to field-test the beta version of the third edition of the International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD-3 beta) diagnostic criteria for classical trigeminal neuralgia (TN). The proposed beta draft of the 11th version of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11 beta) is almost exclusively based on the ICHD-3 beta classification structure although slightly abbreviated. We compared sensitivity and specificity to ICHD-2 criteria, and evaluated the needs for revision. Read More

Z Evid Fortbild Qual Gesundhwes 2013 24;107(4-5):309-13. Epub 2013 May 24.

Migräne- und Kopfschmerzklinik Königstein.

The terms 'persistent idiopathic facial pain' (PIFP) and 'atypical odontalgia' (AO) are currently used as exclusion diagnoses for chronic toothache and chronic facial pain. Knowledge about these pain conditions in medical and dental practices is of crucial importance for the prevention of iatrogenic tissue damage by not-indicated invasive interventions, such as endodontic treatment and tooth extraction. In the present paper, etiology and pathogenesis, differential diagnostic criteria, and diagnostic approaches will be explained and relevant therapeutic principles will be outlined. Read More
