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. Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
