Aim: To summarize the basic and current concepts of algesia that is present in the day-to-day dental practice by a thorough systematic literature research of databases. Background: Electronic databases were used to conduct a computerized search like MEDLINE, PubMed, Scopus and Evidence-based Medicine reviews using the terms were “odontogenic pain”, “dental pain physiology”, “pain biology” and “chemical mediators in dental pain”. Review: The complexity of understanding pain transmission and its perception is of theoretical necessity for dental practitioners. The neurological aspects of pain, i.e. the innervation, stimulation of pain, conductance of pain and its mediators, are the basis that provides knowledge to the practitioners to provide effective pain management in their dental practice. Conclusion: Thorough knowledge about the neurobiology of pain is necessary to understand the pain perceived by the patients and thereby allows the practitioner to follow specific protocols of pain management.
