Temporomandibular disorders, or TMD, has an intimidating reputation as an over-sized cloud of confusion. When it strikes, we don’t know from where it came or where it will go. But in actuality, TMD is an area that any dentist can approach with confidence, if given the right instruction. Rather than just give textbook descriptions of diagnoses, this highly practical course will give you the right tools to narrow in on the correct diagnosis and simple but safe and effective treatments. Your dental staff will also find this course useful, as they can play a large part of teaching the home care regimen to your TMD patients.
