Neuropathic or Non-Odontogenic Pain

Non-odontogenic orofacial pain is frequently of musculoskeletal, neurovascular, neuropathic or vascular origin, and is not consistent with an odontogenic (related to the tooth) source of pain. If you have unexplained pain in the jaw, head, neck or gums, a further evaluation is in order to determine your symptoms and the source of your pain in order to establish a treatment protocol.
