Course Description

In Examination and Records and Treatment Planning Functional Esthetic Excellence, a systematic process for conducting a comprehensive examination, taking diagnostic records and developing a treatment plan was introduced. This process works for the majority of patients which have healthy TMJ’s. This dental course will pick up where those courses left off and 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.
