Pain arising for the teeth and supporting structures is a very common complaint, affecting around9% of adults in the UK, and it can sometimes be difficult to determine the exact cause. In thisnarrative review we explore the underlying neurophysiology of odontogenic pain and describe therelevance of this to clinical practise. We discuss characteristic features of pain arising from thevarious dentoalveolar structures and common oral disorders, and consider that non-odontogenicpain may occasionally present as toothache. As well as describing current approaches to reaching areliable diagnosis, we also discuss some innovative techniques and potential future developments inthis area.
