Orofacial pain

Orofacial pain is one of the most common pain conditions apart from headaches and musculoskeletal pain and is frequently associated with high pain-related disability and high rates of psychosocial distress.

Our research focuses on:

  • interdisciplinary clinical assessment and management of chronic orofacial pain patients
  • investigating pain processing by means of state-of-the art neuroimaging techniques
  • analyzing biomechanical parameters associated with temporomandibular joint function and dysfunction.
