Re: Orofacial pain
Congratulations to Banigo et al. on a succinct and informative paper. However, it is important to emphasise that benzodiazepines in the management of temporomandibular disorders should be reserved for patients in distress, at a low dose, and for a short and defined period of time.1
Oral medicine specialists, primarily based at Dental hospitals, should be considered when referring patients for the medical management of orofacial pain.
