Course Description:

Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) are common among our patient populations; however, training in evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment is lacking in dental, medical, and dental hygiene schools.  The lack of foundation leaves many practitioners without an understanding of TMD and how to manage patients with this disorder.  Postgraduate training in this area is limited and so patients are at risk of not only a failure in correct diagnosis, but also possibly incorrect and/or ineffective treatment. 

This lecture will cover the evaluation, diagnosis, and management of TMD.  It will provide an overview of non-surgical management as well as surgical patient selection and the surgical traetment options for patients with TMD. 

Learning Objectives:

1. Gain a detailed understanding of the evaluation and diagnosis of TMD patients
2. Understand a variety of diagnostic tools and imaging useful in reaching an accurate diagnosis
3. Understand wich non-surgical treatment options are effecitve and appropriate
4. Understand hot to identify surgical patients and know when to refer for surgical evaluation
5. Understand the various surgical treatments available
