TMJ for the Dental Sleep Medicine Practice – Dental CE Course Description
Become a more well-rounded sleep-apnea and TMD dentist and provide the best quality care for your patients.
There is a strong correlation between obstructive sleep apnea and TMD. Often your sleep apnea patients will present with TM disorders and vice versa. Therefore it is important to be well-versed in the temporomandibular joint when treating obstructive sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy.
This 2-day course will provide a solid foundation on TMJ and TMD treatment for dental sleep medicine practitioners, including the correlation of TMJ and sleep disorders, how to minimize TMD issues with oral appliance therapy, the various treatment options for TMD patients, how to treat patients with both sleep apnea and TMD, and more.
If you a dental sleep medicine pracititioner, this course is essential to have under your belt.
A TMJ and orofacial screening should be incorporated into every sleep apnea exam to identify, document, and review any underlying pain or TMJ disorder.
This program features multiple hands-on sessions, including the TMD and sleep examination/workup, as well as trigger-point injections, quicksplints, spray-and-stretch, and other TMD treatment components.

I took Dr. Patel’s course on Craniofacial Pain. His course was a HUGE eye-opener. I now look forward to sharing what I have learned with my patients and helping them on their own personal journeys to better sleep and resolving their pain.Dr. Leslie Monroe
