Sharev and Benoliel (both oral medicine, Hebrew U. Faculty of Dental Medicine) and their contributors describe new and interdisciplinary theories and approaches, including those for oral and facial pain syndromes as well as common primary headaches. In 17 insightful articles they describe the diagnosis process, the anatomy and physiology of orofacial pain, measurement and assessment of pain, psychological aspects, acute pain, otolaryngological aspects, masticatory myofasial pain, tension-type and chronic daily headache, the temporomandibular joint, migraine and possible variants, trigeminal autonomic cephalgias, neuropathic pain, neurosurgical aspects, referred and secondary syndromes, orofacial pain in the medically complex patient, pharmaceutical therapy and complementary and alternative medicine. The articles are very accessible and the medical imagery, photography and illustrations are especially informative.
