TMD and non-odontogenic pain disorders: Assessment, diagnosis, and management
Presented by Dr. David Ojeda, DDS
Temporomandibular disorders (TMD), characterized by pain, joint sounds, and limitation of function, are common complaints in any dental practice. Also, nowadays, we know that not all painful conditions affecting the teeth, mouth, head, and neck are of dental origin. Traditionally, Dentistry has focused on preventing, diagnosing, and treating pain arising from the pulp and periodontium. But, this approach has failed to recognize and include other common conditions affecting our patients. Contemporary Dentistry offers evidence-based diagnoses and treatment methods that will enable you to expand your armamentarium and provide high-quality patient care.
During this course, we will review the following:
Pain concept, pathophysiology, and its role in human evolution.
The role of the Dentist in Orofacial Pain disorders.
Acute and chronic pain and its psychological impact affecting diagnosis and management.
Assessment: Medical history and physical examination of the TMD and pain patient.
Common TMD diagnoses and management. Including occlusal appliances and botulinum toxin injections.
Orofacial neuropathic pain (trigeminal neuralgia and burning mouth syndrome) - diagnosis and management
Presented by Dr. Carlos Landaeta Q., DDS
Facial cosmetic procedures have increased in the past 20 to 30 years thanks not only to the new surgical techniques and development of new products but also to the power of social media and globalization that make visible all the options to enhance facial skin, facial features, and beauty. Recently, cosmetic dentistry has evolved to offer the patient beautiful and functional teeth and a complete enhancement of the mouth, lips, and face. If there is one single treatment that has revolutionized cosmetic facial surgery over the past century, it would have to be botulinum toxin type A. Most products, surgeries, or devices that promise results without recovery time are problematic, and expectations exceed outcomes but not with botox. Botox is the most common cosmetic treatment in the world, and for a good reason. This drug is easy to administer, has no downtime, and produces long-lasting cosmetic effects.
Also, over the past decade, the average cosmetic facial practice has embraced the art and science of facial fillers. With a long-standing of facial anatomy and appreciation for volume loss in relation to facial aging and the advancement of filler science, the contemporary cosmetic facial surgeon has new tools to perform minimally invasive facial rejuvenation. With the new era of cosmetic sophistication, fillers serve as the icing on the cosmetic cake.
The objective of this course is a complete review and understanding of the:
History of botulinum toxin.
Types and Mechanisms of action of B. toxin.
Therapeutic use of B. toxin
Facial Anatomy before injecting the toxin.
Cosmetic application and results.
Complications of applying the toxin.
History of facial fillers.
Understanding facial aging.
Diagnosis decision and patient expectations.
Type of facial fillers.
Complications and how to avoid them when injecting facial fillers.
Management of MRONJ (Medication-Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw) Updates
