Inside issue 77: When you have pain in your face, who do you go to see about it? The dentist might be your first port of call, but what happens if the problem is not dental? The Facial Pain Team, based at the Eastman Dental Hospital in London, have taken the reins for this issue. The multidisciplinary service they provide is the largest and most comprehensive of its kind in the UK.
We are delighted to have this team, who were runners up in the Clinical Leadership Team of the Year category at the 2019 BMJ Clinical Excellence Awards, on board. In this issue, they explain all about how pain in the jaw, mouth and surrounding nerves differs from other types of pain, and explore the different treatment options available.
