Abstract

Although considered rare, dentists may encounter oral pain evoked by a change in barometric pressure, a condition known as barodontalgia (aerodontalgia). The article reviews the epidemiology, clinical presentation, pathogenesis, diagnostic process and differential diagnosis (including facial and dental barotrauma) of this phenomenon. Preventive measures are described as well.
