Orofacial Pain is concerned with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of orofacial pain disorders. The pain localized to the region below the orbitomeatal line, as well as pain within the oral cavity is called orofacial pain. The symptoms include postoperative pain, or may be syndromes such as TMJ disorder pain. It includes the most common disorder such as toothache and temporomandibular disorders, as well as rare orofacial pain syndromes. Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
