OROFACIAL PAIN AND HEADACHE is a timely, comprehensive and instructive addition to the pain literature; in particular the important and truly multidisciplinary area of orofacial pain. Based on their extensive clinical experience and a thorough understanding of pain mechanisms specific to the trigeminal system, the editors, Yair Sharav and Rafael Benoliel, have integrated knowledge from the areas of headache and orofacial pain and have succinctly explained common mechanisms involved in the two phenomena, with important implications for pain diagnosis and management.

"This textbook is a joy to read! The editors have to be congratluated for presenting two broad topics, orofacial pain and headaches, in one well-structured and nicely illustrated textbook." Journal of Orofacial Pain, Issue 2/09
"This is a very interesting book. There is a considerable overlap between headaches and face pains that present to dentists and maxillofacial surgeons and neurologists. This book considers these clinical problems primarily from the dental/maxillofacial perspective. The ‘classic’ neurological conditions, migraine, trigeminal neuralgia and the trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias are clearly described and discussed, with some very useful clinical vignettes." BMA Book Awards 2009 - judges comments
"This book recognises the multi-disciplinary management requirements of orofacial pain problems and based upon their extensive clinical experience, the authors are well equipped to coordinate knowledge across the various specialities associated with the care of these conditions. Orofacial pain is a very complex entity and this book covers every aspect very comprehensively... it will be invaluable as an undergraduate reference book and for the maxillofacial or oral medicine specialist who is frequently dealing with the complexities of orofacial pain" Primary Dental Care, January 2010
"We highly recommend this very clear and user-freindly book, which will provide the reader- not only dentists but also a wide spectrum of medical practitioners-with much scientific and practical knowledge in the understanding and treatment of orofacial pain." Israel Medical Association Journal, July 2009
