Course Description

TMD-TMJ, What is It All About?
Temporomandibular Disorders are a group of conditions, often painful, that affects the Temporomandibular Joint and the muscles of mastication. It has been estimated by the National Institutes of Health that approximately 10 million people are affected. As dental team members, many are unaware of the signs, symptoms, and treatments available for these patients. This course will provide dental team members, who may have only the basic knowledge of the TM joint, with a very detailed and informed presentation involving the structure and function of the joint, etiological factors of disease, examination and evaluation methods used, and treatment modalities offered. The role of the dental team in TMD will also be discussed. A personal discussion will also be offered.

  1. Demonstrate a basic review of the anatomy of the Temporomandibular Joint
