New Book Documents Research and Treatment Advances in Orofacial Pain

Orofacial PainIASP Press is days away from releasing a new book, Orofacial Pain: Recent Advances in Assessment, Management, and Understanding of Mechanisms, Barry J. Sessle, editor. The book will be available first in IASP eBooks and shortly thereafter in the IASP Bookstore. Check back soon to purchase your copy. 

Published in conjunction with the Global Year Against Orofacial Pain, the book addresses the epidemiologic, socioeconomic, and psychological aspects of orofacial pain conditions as well as the mechanisms underlying orofacial pain revealed in recent studies in humans and animals. With contributions from 54 of the world’s leading pain specialists, the book is the new standard resource for understanding, assessing, and managing all aspects of orofacial pain.

Most other books on this topic focus on just one or two aspects of orofacial pain—and nearly all with only dental students or clinicians in mind. Orofacial Pain’s 24 chapters provide the most up-to-date, complete, and integrated coverage of advances in research and new evidence. It is must reading not only for dental clinicians but also for pain scientists and specialists, neurologists, and other clinicians.

Editor and IASP Honorary Member Barry J. Sessle, MDS, PhD, is a professor on the faculties of Dentistry and Medicine at the University of Toronto and a member of the University of Toronto Centre for the Study of Pain. He is also a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and has served as president of IASP, the Canadian Pain Society, the Canadian Association for Dental Research, and the International Association for Dental Research.
