There are a number of causes of pain in the face, and there is a useful Information sheet on the different types of facial pain from the Brain and Spine Foundation, and a page on the Trigeminal Neuralgia Association site gives a good discussion of other potential causes. One important type of pain is trigeminal neuralgia, which is discussed further (with useful links) on this page.
