Dental pathology is definitely the most common cause of orofacial pain. Dentists astutely diagnose and treat the various pathologic dental conditions. The restoration of the masticatory system is usually achieved in a proficient, straightforward and predictable manner. Certain patients' orofacial pains do not have a dental etiology and are refractory to treatment. The protean manifestations of temporal arteritis may present with major pain complaints mimicking dental pathology. A case report of such a patient is presented.
