Atypical Facial Pain

Are you a dental professional seeking to enhance your expertise in diagnosing and managing atypical facial pain? This course offers the perfect opportunity for you to expand your knowledge in this very important area.

Atypical facial pain, also called persistent idiopathic facial pain (PIFP), is a complex and often misunderstood condition, characterised by persistent and unexplained facial pain that does not correspond to any specific nerve distribution.

It affects a significant number of patients, impacting their quality of life and posing a challenge for dental professionals who strive to provide appropriate treatment and care.

Dental professionals play a central role in identifying, diagnosing, and managing this debilitating condition.

Our course on atypical facial pain in dentistry aims to equip you with a comprehensive understanding of this important subject.

The course covers a wide array of topics, including the classification of atypical facial pain, the diagnostic process, differentiating it from other orofacial pain conditions, and evidence-based treatment options and management strategies for dental patients.
