Not all toothaches are caused by an odontogenic source. Unfortunately, these types of pain sources can be perplexing for both the patient and the dentist. Hence, patients often see several specialists and irreversible treatments before obtaining an accurate diagnosis. This course will provide a comprehensive review of non-odontogenic sources of tooth pain. Attendees will learn how to differentiate between odontogenic and non-odontogenic toothaches, the appropriate examination methods, diagnostic tests, and management of non-odontogenic toothaches.
- Describe the non-odontogenic sources of tooth pain.
- Differentiate between odontogenic and non-odontogenic toothaches.
- Implement diagnostic techniques in the evaluation of non-odontogenic toothache.
- Describe management strategies for each type of non-odontogenic tooth pain.
This course is designed for dentists, hygienists, and assistants.
Recommended by the New Dentist Committee.
