About this Event
155 Fifth Street, San Francisco, CA 94103
Despite recommended regular dental checkups, pain is one of the primary reasons patients seek dental treatment. This interactive course will provide advanced knowledge of diagnosis, quantification and treatment of various types of orofacial pain, which include temporomandibular disorders (TMD). Not all pain in this region is odontogenic; therefore, there is a need for dental professionals to understand the complexities of various non-odontogenic sources of pain. Knowledge of head and neck anatomy, including an understanding of the nerve pathways delivering pain, is helpful in differential diagnosis and narrowing the possible sources causing pain in each particular case.
