TMD/OROFACIAL PAIN DIAGNOSIS AND MANAGEMENT: CLARIFYING THE ISSUES

 Presented By, Dr. Henry A. Gremillion

Course Overview:

Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) encompass a multitude of conditions which involve the temporomandibular joints, muscles of mastication, and/or contiguous structures.  Many TMD diagnostic subgroups share common clinical characteristics.  Diagnosis and management of TMD has been associated with many misconceptions and much debate.  It is now recognized that multiple factors are involved with the initiation and/or perpetuation of TMD.  Additionally, we now have a greater appreciation for the total pain experience including pain mechanisms/pathways and pain referral in the head and neck.  The importance of individualizing diagnosis and management for optimum therapeutic outcomes is well-recognized.  This course will emphasize diagnosis and non-surgical management of this challenging, yet common group of musculoskeletal disorders.  This program will provide the participant with a better understanding of:

* the rationale for a thorough history and examination

* current concepts of pain referral in the head and neck

* diagnostic criteria for commonly occurring TMD subgroups

* etiologic considerations essential for case-specific management

* reversible approaches to management in the vast majority of cases

* the development of a “case-specific” plan of care for each patient

* the concept of multidisciplinary management of TMD
