Aim To provide an overview of mechanisms underlying craniofacial pain; to highlight peripheral and central adaptations that may promote chronification of pain in craniofacial pain states such as migraine and temporomandibular disorders (TMD). Background Pain is a common symptom associated with disorders involving craniofacial tissues including the teeth and their supporting structures, the temporomandibular joint and the muscles of the head. Most acute painful craniofacial conditions are easily… Expand
Neural Pathways of Craniofacial Muscle Pain: Implications for Novel Treatments
TLDR
It is likely, therefore, that further delineation of neural circuits mediating craniofacial muscle hyperalgesia potentially enhances treatment of chronic muscle pain conditions. Expand

TLDR
Findings from studies in animal models of the behavioural characteristics and underlying mechanisms related to the development and maintenance of chronic orofacial pain and trigeminal neuropathic pain in particular underscore the importance for considering the strain of the animal to model and explore chronic Orof facial pain processes. Expand
Towards a Better Understanding of Temporomandibular Disorder
TLDR
It is proposed that this model that involves pain signaling in response to prolonged jaw opening in sensitized animals involves dysfunction of descending inhibitory signaling and likely involves changes in the expression of cytokines and miRNAs. Expand
The role of connexins and pannexins in orofacial pain.
TLDR
This review highlights recent discoveries in the regulation of Cxs and Panxs in different orofacial pain models and presents a hypothetical mechanism of ectopic pain in trigeminal neuralgia. Expand
Glia and Orofacial Pain: Progress and Future Directions
TLDR
This review highlights recent molecular and cellular findings of the glia involvement and glia–neuron interactions in four common orofacial pain conditions such as headache, dental pulp injury, temporomandibular joint dysfunction/inflammation, and head and neck cancer. Expand
Transient Receptor Potential (TRP) Ion Channels in Orofacial Pain.
TLDR
This review focuses on the current experimental evidence involving TRP ion channels, particularly TRPV1, TRPA1,TRPV4, and TRPM8 in orofacial pain, and discusses their possible cellular and molecular mechanisms. Expand
Trigeminal neuralgia: An overview from pathophysiology to pharmacological treatments
TLDR
The antiepileptic drugs carbamazepine and oxcarbazepine are the first-line pharmacological treatment for trigeminal neuralgia and their mechanism of action is a modulation of voltage-gated sodium channels, leading to a decrease in neuronal activity. Expand
Acute and Chronic Pain from Facial Skin and Oral Mucosa: Unique Neurobiology and Challenging Treatment
TLDR
A more detailed understanding of the unique neurobiology of pain from the orofacial skin and the oral mucosa should help to develop novel methods for better treating persistent oroFacial pain. Expand
Somatosensory profiles of patients with chronic myogenic temporomandibular disorders in relation to their painDETECT score
TLDR
The present study has shown that the PainDETECT questionnaire can be a helpful additional diagnostic tool, together with QST, that detected hyperalgesia for pressure and thermal sensation in TMD patients. Expand
Peripheral and Central Mechanisms of Persistent Orofacial Pain
TLDR
It is considered that functional interaction between non-neuronal cells and neurons in the TG, Vc, and C1/C2 regions is a key mechanism involved in the enhancement of neuronal excitability after nerve injury or inflammation. Expand

TLDR
The recent findings provide new insights into craniofacial pain behavior and are particularly relevant to many approaches currently in use for the management of pain and to the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures aimed at manipulating peripheral inputs and central processes underlying nociceptive transmission and its control within the VBSNC.

The Neurobiology of Orofacial Pain and Sleep and Their Interactions
TLDR
Findings that indicate that reducing orofacial pain and improving sleep need to be targeted together in the management of acute to chronic oroFacial pain states in order to improve an oro facial pain patient’s quality of life are reviewed. Expand
Different Pain, Different Brain: Thalamic Anatomy in Neuropathic and Non-Neuropathic Chronic Pain Syndromes
TLDR
In trigeminal neuropathy patients, magnetic resonance spectroscopy revealed a significant reduction in the N-acetylaspartate/creatine ratio, a biochemical marker of neural viability, in the region of thalamic volume loss, suggesting that neuropathic pain conditions that result from peripheral injuries may be generated and/or maintained by structural changes in regions such as the thalamus.

A new mechanistic definition of chronic pain is advanced and the clinical implications of this new definition as well as novel therapeutic potentials suggested by these advances are discussed. Expand
Descending pain modulation and chronification of pain
TLDR
Preclinical studies coupled with clinical pharmacologic and neuroimaging investigations have advanced the understanding of brain circuits that modulate pain and suggest that diminished descending inhibition is likely to be an important element in determining whether pain may become chronic. Expand
Role of Glia in Orofacial Pain
TLDR
Recent findings indicating that nonneural cells, specifically satellite cells in the sensory ganglia and astroglia and microglia cells inThe central nervous system, are important players in both acute and chronic inflammatory and neuropathic orofacial pain conditions and may offer new targets for management of these conditions are highlighted.
