Description: Pain is fraught in the dental world. It is often the driver of emergency dental visits, yet it also keeps many fearful patients out of the dental chair. Thankfully, we live in a world with effective pharmaceuticals to manage pain of endodontic origin pre-operatively, effective anesthesia to eliminate painful delivery of care, and strategies to minimize postoperative discomfort. In this lecture, we’ll present an organized and evidence-based algorithm for both diagnosing and managing pain of endodontic origin, including before, during and following the delivery of definitive care. 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Explain the origins of orofacial pain 
  • Discuss appropriate management strategies for pain of endodontic origin 
  • Review management strategies for postoperative and persistent pain conditions
