It is estimated that more than 95% of cases of orofacial pain result from dental causes (ie toothache due to pulpitis or dental abscess). However, some orofacial pain conditions may involve areas outside this area, eg. Temporary pain in TMD. Toothache, or odontalgia, is any pain occurring in the teeth or their supporting structures (ie periodontium). Therefore toothache is a type of orofacial pain. Craniofacial pain is an overlapping topic that includes pain in the head, face, and associated structures, sometimes including neck pain. All other causes of orofacial pain are rare in comparison, although full differential diagnosis is widespread.
