The Mouth, the Face and the Mind by C Fienmann
ISBN 0192630628  Publisher: Oxford University Press, Oct. 1999
Free Shipping!

Book Description:
This text deals with dramatic disorders that can be present in the face and head. This book reviews the ways patients with emotional problems present to maxillofacial surgeons and other dental practitioners. It provides practical advice to help these clinicians recognize the orofacial manifestations of psychiatric disorders and explains the different approaches to treatment. Chronic orofacial symptoms, including pain, disturbances of jaw movement, altered sensation, uncontrolled salivation, and ulceration,  are often revealed to be the result of emotional problems. The book covers clinical situations ranging from how to deal with anxious patients, the patient with stress-related cranial, oral, and facial pain, to the patient who wishes to change his or her appearance through orthognathic or orthodontic means. The book is intended for dental practitioners, academicians, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, psychiatrists, psychologists and any who may have interest in the management of chronic pain.
