ABC: Airway, Bruxism, & Craniofacial Pain Dental Course Description
It is becoming clear that dentists involved in either obstructive sleep apnea, TMJ pain, or bruxism treatment should be knowledgeable in all three areas. Understanding the correlation between airway, bruxism, and craniofacial pain can help you grow your dental sleep medicine and craniofacial pain practice by identifying root causes of symptoms and building stronger referral relationships with physicians. Learn how to assess your patients, prioritize, and fabricate a treatment plan that provides the best results for these three conditions.
During the ABC: Airway, Bruxism, and Craniofacial Pain dental seminar provided by the SCOPE Institute for Sleep Apnea & Craniofacial Pain Education, Dr. Mayoor Patel will be introducing the relationship between these three disorders. With clenching or grinding of one’s teeth being a symptom of pain, OR a way for the brain to protect itself from suffocation, we will demonstrate how to implement a screening process to help identify bruxism as a sign of TMJ/craniofacial pain and sleep disordered breathing, and manage their disorders.
Getting your patients out of pain and restoring their energy, health, and quality of life is immensely rewarding and needed by so many patients with sleep apnea, orofacial pain, and bruxism, and this dental course will help you give these patients the best quality of care possible.
