All TMJ Patients are NUTS, right? How to Evaluate, Diagnose and Treat the Most Common TMJ Problems
Recommended for: Dentists | Subject: TMD | CE Credits: 2
TMJ disorders are one of those areas where almost every dentist feels uncomfortable. In dental school we didn’t get much classroom information, and little or no clinical experience. Our treatments in practice are often hit and miss, without clarity on why sometimes we hit, and other times we miss. In this lecture Dr. Spencer will review the relevant anatomy and discuss simple examination, diagnosis and treatment techniques that will allow you to STUN your next TMD patients with your understanding of their issues, and allow you to help many more people.
- Review and remember the relevant anatomy of the head and neck.
- Understand principles of examination and evaluation for TMD.
- Have a straight forward way to diagnose the most common TM disorders.
- Understand the treatments for the most common TM disorders.
This course is replacing Dr. Terry Tanaka’s TMJ course, which has been cancelled.
