Facial pain is a common medical complaint that is easily misdiagnosed. As a result, this pain often goes mistreated. Despite this, there are a variety of pharmacologic, surgical, and neuromodulatory options for the treatment of facial pain. In this review, the authors detail the forms of facial pain and their treatment options. They discuss the common medications used in the first-line treatment of facial pain and the second-line surgical and neuromodulatory options available to patients when pharmacologic options fail.
