Effective TMD Diagnoses and Treatments for General Practitioners - WEBINAR
October 23, 2020
Dr. Wright will discuss his initial patient TMD evaluation and a recommended treatment protocol for integrating and utilizing multidisciplinary TMD therapies. This information will then be applied to 14 documented cases in which the patient's symptoms and clinical evaluation results are presented, and potential diagnoses and treatments will be discussed. Several of these cases are of patients who present with symptoms similar to TMD, but other diagnoses are determined, i.e., symptomatic irreversible pulpitis, sinusitis, etc. Participants will be taught to identify these disorders from TMD through history and clinical evaluation.
The course is designed to help dentists more cost effectively obtain maximal therapeutic benefit with their TMD patients.
Learn to identify patients who generally will not respond well to traditional TMD therapy and how that can be changed.
Gain new insight of the prevalence of referred pain, how to identify its source, and the pain interconnection between the teeth, masticatory system, and cervical region.
Understand which allied health professionals are able to help various TMD patients and when they would be most beneficial.
Learn a progression of steps that can be taken to prevent TMD aggravation when providing dental care.
