“Insight to Clinical Orofacial Pain” Presented by Dr. Junad Khan

Starting at 5:30 pm – Appetizers and cash bar

6:00 pm until 8:00 pm – Dinner and lecture – 2 MCE Credits

Session Description: Pain is usually the natural consequence of tissue injury resulting in approximately forty million medical appointments per year. In general, as the healing process commences, the pain and tenderness associated with the injury will resolve. Unfortunately, some individuals experience pain without an obvious injury or suffer protracted pain that persists for months or years after the initial insult. This pain conditions are usually musculoskeletal, neuropathic, or neurovascular in nature and accounts for a large number of patients presenting to pain clinics with chronic, non-malignant pain. Rather than the nervous system functioning properly to sound an alarm regarding tissue injury, in chronic pain the peripheral or central nervous systems are malfunctioning and become the cause of the pain. Orofacial pain is complex; evaluation of the history of a patient with orofacial pain is quite different from evaluating a patient with dental pain and appropriate training is required to treat patients with unusual oral and facial pain complaints. This lecture will discuss various Orofacial Pain and Headaches in a patient that can manifest pain in the facial region. The physiology of pain and identification of non-odontogenic sources in the progression of chronic pain will be discussed in the format of case presentations. As health care providers it is important to recognize various pain conditions to avoid unnecessary treatment and suffering.

Learning objectives: At the completion of this session the attendees will be able to:

· Understand the physiology and classification of pain.

· Differentiate between odontogenic vs non-odontogenic pain.

· Perform a comprehensive pain assessment, including its impact on the patient and manage the pain based on best-available evidence and good clinical practice and to evaluate the effectiveness
