Abstract Orofacial pain, the main reason why many patients seek dental advice, usually has a local cause--primarily the sequelae of dental caries--but a wide range of diseases, particularly neurological, psychogenic and vascular disorders, can cause orofacial pain. This article will discuss disorders that can present with pain and the neurological, psychogenic and vascular causes of orofacial pain. The first article in this series made several general observations on diagnosis and treatment which should be borne in mind in relation to the material presented here.
