Conference Summary

The target audience for this medical event is dentists and other healthcare professionals dealing with orofacial myogenous pain conditions and headaches in the orofacial region. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 14 Continuing Education Credits.

Conference Description :
This hands-on course gives the participants the opportunity to learn how to perform a physical examination on patients with TMD. The goal of the workshop is to review how to take a history, perform an examination and come up with a tentative diagnosis and effective treatment plan. Also, the participants will practice therapeutic approaches to TMD including Trigger point identification, Stretching, and TMJ mobilization. The injection techniques will be performed in anatomical models.

This course reviews the appropriate pharmacologic, behavioral, splint therapy and physical medicine management procedures for TMD. For example, myofascial pain-based exercises include stretching, mobilization and manipulation methods. Muscle injections (e.g. trigger point anesthetic and botox injections) and joint injections (e.g. sodium hyaluronate, arthrocentesis and corticosteroids) will be discussed.
