Odontogenic Pain

Odontogenic pain refers to pain initiating from the teeth or their supporting structures, the mucosa, gingivae, maxilla, mandible or periodontal membrane.

Toothache is caused by inflammation of the dental pulp, most commonly as a result of dental caries (tooth decay).

Periodontal disease (gum disease) involves the mixture of bacterial infection, smoking and a genetic predisposition.

Dental pulpitis (‘toothache’) is mainly produces by infection from dental caries close to the pulp or by inflammation from chemical or thermal insult after dental treatment.

The incidence of nerve injury after dental surgical procedures, including third-molar extractions and placement of implants, is higher than commonly believed (possibly up to 40 percent), and, for the latter, the incidence is increasing.

The term “peripheral painful traumatic trigeminal neuropathy” (PPTTN) has been proposed for dental nerve pain that occurs within three months of such procedures.

Dental work including dental implants may trigger an underlying diagnosed or undiagnosed trigeminal neuralgic syndrome.

Photobiomodulation based on the local application of class IV low level therapy not only helps to decrease the local inflammation and accelerates the healing process, but also help significantly in decreasing the underlying trigeminal neuralgic pain.
