Orofacial pain - defined as pain lasting over three months in the mouth or face - is increasing in prevelance, with approximately 7% of the UK population having experienced it. It is currently managed by either dentists or general medical practitioners, both of whom have radically different approaches to treatment. While management of orofacial pain has improved quite dramatically over recent years, it is essential that dentists and general practitioners are aware of these advances and of the differences in their approaches. This concise handbook takes an evidence-based psychosocial approach to the management of patients with pain in the face or mouth and provides basic guidelines to facilitate care quickly in the clinical setting. The book will serve as a useful guide for dental practitioners, specialists in orofacial pain, trainee pain specialists, neurologists with an interest in pain, specialist pain nurses, as well as general medical practitioners.

This evidence-based book, featuring contributions from world-renowned experts, discusses in detail the functional anatomy of the temporomandibular joint as well as the aetiology, diagnosis, treatment and medicolegal implications of patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMD).Despite advances in our understanding of the aetiology of TMD and in developing current treatment rationales, a number of issues remain controversial. These include the extent to which the temporomandibular joint should be a central focus of orthodontic diagnosis and treatment, as well as the role that occlusion and malocclusion play in precipitating TMD symptoms. Indeed, few subjects in dentistry and the specialty of orthodontics are open to as many interpretations or misinterpretations as TMD. This textbook provides clinical orthodontists with essential information and guidance that will assist them in understanding and effectively managing this complex multilayered problem. Throughout, clear clinical guidelines are presented on the basis of current scientific and clinical evidence. TMD and Orthodontics will be a highly valuable chairside resource for orthodontists everywhere.

The mental health assessment and treatment of youngsters with physical symptoms and illnesses commonly pose unique and often complex challenges to clinicians. Clinical Manual of Pediatric Psychosomatic Medicine is the only complete text on the subject, describing an integrative approach to behavioral health problems in children and adolescents who are physically ill, have emotional illness masquerading as physical illness, and have comorbid emotional and physical conditions that complicate the management of each. It brings together information regarding consultation-liaison or psychosomatic work with children into a succinct guide that provides the practitioner with pragmatic ways of organizing the key issues that arise in psychiatric consultation with physically ill children, and it features a set of unique templates to help guide clinical assessment and management. The authors offer a practical method of mental health consultation in the medical setting and cover topics not included in standard child psychiatry and psychology texts, such as treatment adherence and organ transplantation. Overview chapters include a hands-on approach to the consultation process and pragmatic assessment guidelines. Succeeding chapters then address specific clinical situations, from delirium and mood disorders to organ transplantation and cancer. Additional chapters consider issues related to treatment and intervention: both individual and family psychotherapy, including coping strategies for family members; psychopharmacology; and techniques such as medical hypnosis to help children prepare for procedures. Among the book's other helpful features are: Templates with specific questions for both general psychiatric assessment and specific issues, such as pre-transplant assessment, treatment adherence, and somatoform disorders Intensive coverage of pediatric pain assessment and management, including the use of adjunctive psychiatric medications to treat children with chronic pain Unique considerations tailored to each topic, such as anxiety symptoms related to specific physical conditions and end-of-life strategies for cancer patients Consideration of legal and forensic issues, including consent, confidentiality, and assessment for parenting capacity An abundance of quick-reference tables -- including psychopharmacological agents used in a wide range of conditions, with indications, doses, and side effects -- and flow charts describing step-by-step approaches to pain and somatoform disorders This practical manual is useful to a wide range of professionals who work with children and adolescents in medical settings. And because psychosomatic medicine has recently received subspecialty status with the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, it offers an excellent resource for board examinations.
