36th Annual Marvin Goldstein Lecture Series
Augusta, Georgia, April 25, 2014 - 8:00 AM - 3:15 PM
There is probably no greater challenge in dentistry than understanding the complex nature of temporomandibular joint dysfunction and the many factors that are associated with this disorder. The purpose of this course is to provide the practitioner with guidelines to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders, and better understand the role of occlusion and nonodontogenic factors in the development of TMJ disorders. Occlusal appliances and their indications will be discussed as well as the role of the dental specialist in the more complex cases.
