Editorial Reviews

Book Description
Chronic orofacial symptoms, including pain, ulceration, disturbances in jaw movement, and problems with sensation or salivation, are often revealed to be the result of emotional problems. This book reviews the various ways that patients with emotional problems present to dental practitioners and maxillofacial surgeons. It provides practical advice to help these clinicians to recognise the orofacial manifestations of psychitric disorders and explains the different approaches to treatment. The book covers clinical situations ranging from how to deal with the anxious patient, the patient with stress-related head, face and mouth pain, to the patient who wishes to change their appearance by either an orthodontic or orthognathic approach. The chief author and guest contributors to this book represent a variety of disciplines, including dental practioners, restorative specialists, orthodontists, maxillofacial surgeons, psychiatrists and psychologists, all of whom have a contribution to make to the management of these patients.
