Abstract

Neuropathic orofacial pain (NOP) is a challenging diagnostic problem. In some cases, symptomatology may be similar to that seen with dental pathology, resulting in unwarranted dental treatment. Rarely, NOP can herald serious disease or central tumors, and early diagnosis can be life-saving. The following review outlines the classification, clinical presentation, pathophysiology, and treatment of the more common NOP entities.
