  7. 7. A-history: 1-Chief complaint. 2-History of present illness. Pain Characteristics  Intensity  Quality  Location  Onset  Associated events at onset  Duration and timing of pain  Course of symptoms since onset  Activities that increase pain  Activities that decrease pain  Associated symptoms (eg, altered sensation, swelling)  Previous treatments and their effects  Referral
  8. 8. 3-Past medical history -Connective tissue disease. -Demylination disorder. -Metastatic disease. -Ischemic heart disease. 4-Social history: -History of traumatic event prior to onset of pain. -Change in work, or problem regarding marital state.
  9. 9. B-physical examination: 1. Inspection of the head and neck skin, 2. Palpation of masticatory muscles, 3. Assessment and measurement of the range of mandibular movement. 4. Palpation of soft tissue . 5. Palpation of the temporomandibular joint 6. Palpation of cervical muscles and assessment of cervical range of motion. 7. Cranial nerve examination. 8. General inspection of the ears, nose, and oropharyngeal areas. 9. Examination and palpation of intraoral soft tissue. 10. Examination of the teeth and periodontium (including occlusion.
  10. 10. Methods of pain measurement: 1-visual analog scale (VAS) 0 -----------------------------------10 no pain worst possible pain 2-Descriptive rating scales (eg, no pain, mild, moderate, severe pain). 3-Faces rating scale. 4-The McGill Pain Questionnaire (MPQ) .
  11. 11. -Used to confirm the diagnosis or rule out serious disease.  -Extent of an identified disorder.  -Most OFP not produce abnormality. 
  12. 12. 1-Myofascial pain. 2-Traumatic injuries. 3-Arthritis &Arthrosis: (a)infective . (b) systemic. (c) degenerative. 4-Internal derangement.
  13. 13.  Myofascial       pain diffuse poorly localized periauricular pain. May associated with parafunctional habits . the pain may be severe in morning. the pain is more severe during periods of tension and anxiety. the range of mandibular movement decrease . "trigger points," where muscles have taut, palpable band regions that twitch when manually percussed.
  14. 14. -Education of patient and explanation .  -Self care to eliminate oral habit such as gum chewing , clenching of teeth.  -thermal therapy(U/S, laser ).  -Intraoral appliance.  -Pharmacotherapy:  -NSAID.  -Muscle relaxant drugs ,  -Antianxiety drugs.  -TCAs.  Botox injection.  Trigger point block therapies, using local anesthetic in combination with corticosteroid. 
  15. 15.  Pain on palpation directly over TMJ.  Limitation in joint range of motion.  Deviation on opening.  Joint noises consistently associated with pain.  Joint crepitus.  Mahan sign (+ve in Wilkes II,III and IV).

  17. 17.      Rare pain disorder characterized by continuous lancinating like pain in site of previous tooth extraction. Usually in lower 3rd molar region. Pain not interfere with sleep. Radiographically appear as moth eaten or soap bubbles in site of previous extraction. Treated by resection of bone area with pain ,
  18. 18. Neuralgia-inducing cavitational osteonecrosis (NICO) . Periapical radiograph demonstrates an oval radiolucency in the third molar region and thin lamina dura remnants (residual socket) .
  19. 19. Definition : usually unilateral sever brief sudden stabbing pain in distribution of one or more of branches of trigeminal nerve. 
  20. 20.  TN divided to primary and secondary(symptomatic)  the primary TN are result of vascular compression of trigeminal nerve near its entry into the pons (superior cerebellar artery).  Secondary TN causes include :multiple sclerosis, tumors ,basilar artery eneurysim or actasia.
  21. 21.    It presents as episodic ,recurrent unilateral facial pain, described as sudden high intensity stabbing or electric like shock. lasts for a few seconds to minutes , Pain is frequently triggered by trivial stimulation: such as touching of face, washing ,shaving , chewing and talking.
  22. 22. It occurs mostly after 5th decade.  Clinical examination of face is nearly always normal.  If sensory loss is present a mass lesion is more likely  In young patients with TN, multiple sclerosis should be considered. 
  23. 23.    Diagnosis depend on history and clinical examination. A careful search for ipsilateral dental pathology should be undertake MRI and MRA and performed if there is suspicion of underlying pathology.

Clinical features:  most frequently affects adults above the age of 50 years.  Dull aching or throbbing temporal pain. accompanied by generalized symptoms , including fever, malaise, and loss of appetite. Jaw claudication during mastication. 
  64. 64. Diagnosis:  elevated ESR 50-100 .  elevated CRP.  Biopsy. -Treatment:  high dose of steroid(prednisolone) 60 -100mg daily.  the steroid is tapered once the signs of the disease are controlled.  Patients are maintained on systemic steroids for 1 to 2 years after symptoms resolve.
