We all have patients who present with temporomandibular disorders (TMD). Despite this, TMDs are among the least understood and most undertreated ailments in dentistry. Ignoring or mishandling TMD problem can lead to case failures and frustrated patients. This webinar is designed as an overview of temporomandibular joint disorders, from their initial presentation to management of the condition based on etiology. By adhering to the core principles taught in this webinar, restorative failures can be minimized while improving comfort levels, ultimately leading to patient satisfaction and referrals for the practitioner.
