Dental Continuing Education Courses on TMD and Facial Pain
In a study of over 45,000 households, 1 in 5 have suffered from orofacial pain in the last 6 months, illustrating the large opportunity our profession has to provide successful outcomes that can greatly impact patients’ lives.
In order to effectively treat patients with TMD, we must first be able to accurately diagnose the root of their pain and then predictably treat them. Unfortunately, most dentists do not feel prepared or confident to do either.
From these courses learn to evaluate, diagnose and treatment TMD and facial pain patients.

This dental course will teach a systematic process for advanced records when TMD pathology is suspected. A systematic process for the evaluation, differential diagnosis, treatment and management of patients exhibiting signs and symptoms of TMD will be developed. Phase one treatment will focus on occlusal splint therapy. Splint designs will be selected based on the suspected joint diagnosis. Phase two will focus on the definitive treatment steps required to establish a lasting and comfortable occlusion.
