Course Description:

Through completion of this webinar, attendees will gain in-depth understanding of the specialty of orofacial pain, the most common orofacial pain disorders and their impact, how to assess and understand patient complexity, and the goals of evidence-based treatments.

This course is dedicated to the physiology, diagnosis and treatment of pain felt in the mouth, jaws, face and other disorders of non-odontogenic origin.  Generally, this is pain in the head, face and TM Joint structures that is of non-odontogenic origin.  The topic is as much medicine as dentistry and important for practitioners to understand so that referral and or treatment can be accurate and precise for the benefit of our patients.

Course Objectives:

  • How to identify and stratify mild, moderate, and severe TMD conditions in your clinical practice.
  • Evidence-based management strategies of TMD conditions including oralappliances, botulinum toxin injections, triggerpoint injections, TMJ injections and medications.
  • When to refer the patient to orofacial pain specialists and other medical specialists.
