Headache & Pain
Pain, headache, and oromandibular structures
Pain is referred to dental structures in many common primary headache disorders, such as migraine, cluster headache, and trigeminal neuralgia. Pain referral from extradental structures typically results from activation of the trigeminovascular system. Central sensitization is a common problem in temporomandibular joint disorders, atypical odontalgia, and primary headache disorder.
