About this Seminar

Free presentation. Sponsored by The Aurum Group.


What is TMD? How common is it? What does it look like in our patient population? The problem with TMD is in our definition of the problem. And the limitations that definition gives us when treating patients. With a common sense look at the diagnosis of TMD we can treat the 3 main problems TMD/malocclusion patients have and find answers to help them.

You will learn:
1) The physiology of occlusion … Signs and Symptoms in the TMD Basket.
2) The 3 Problems with a Malocclusion.
3) Modern biometric diagnostics / measuring the physiology.
4) How to move from a Mechanical to Bio-Mechanical view of TMD.
5) Integrating Collaborative Protocols to get Faster Resolution.
