The incidence of occlusal and TMD patients has significantly increased over the last 20 years. Fortunately, our ability to successfully treat these patients has also improved during that time.
However, most dentists are not confident treating occlusal and TMD problems, often due to a lack of training in dental school. Most occlusal and TMD treatments currently taught are over 50 years old, and while they still work for some patients, those same treatments can lead to catastrophic outcomes for others. The goal of this program is to help you recognize which patients present with higher risk factors that may lead to unsuccessful outcomes and to share concepts that can successfully treat low-risk and high-risk occlusal-TMD patients.
