Diagnosis & Treatment of Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) is organized by Rondeau Seminars Limited and will be held from Mar 01 - 02, 2019 at Fairmont Royal York, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 14 hours of CE lecture.
Course Description :
This two-day introductory TMD course will assist dentists to diagnose and treat the simple cases with repositioning splints during the daytime and anterior deprogrammers at night. This TMD course will show you how to take construction bites to determine how much you need to increase the vertical and advance the mandible when fabricating splints. Dentists will be encouraged to refer the complex cases to practitioners whose practices are designed to treat these patients.
Course Benefits :
Dentists have the prime responsibility to diagnose and treat this common disorder. TM disorders are progressive and worsen over time; therefore, just like orthodontics, it is imperative that the problem be treated as early as possible. Dentists are encouraged to treat their younger patients with a functional, non-extraction philosophy in order to prevent TM dysfunction.
This introductory course will enable the dentist to evaluate what patients require, TMJ stabilization prior to restorative orthodontic or prosthetic treatment.
