The Dental profession is increasingly being drawn into a role of diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders. With the growing number of "Dental Sleep Medicine" courses on offer, there is a need to evaluate which of these gives the widest and most clinically orientated educational program. Furthermore, TMJ disorder remains a subject of great confusion among dentists, with the newly qualified practitioners having less knowledge of this subject than even their basic orthodontic skills.
The inaugural TMJ Sleep Dentistry Symposium by MRC will be the first to put the complete picture together. From treating a clicking joint, to evaluating and treating sleep disorders in Adults and children, this symposium will cover diagnostic and treatment procedures for TMJ disorder and sleep disorders as well as show you how to seamlessly integrate it all with Myofunctional Orthodontic procedures.
Why? Because Sleep disorders, TMJ disorders and malocclusion are integrated and, in most patients, require seamless diagnosis and treatment procedures to prevent inadequate and incomplete outcomes.
This symposium will define a new syndrome known as TMJBDS - Teeth Muscles Jaw Breathing Disordered Sleep Syndrome.
