Description

This program is one of five presentations that were presented in an all day seminar titled "From Toothache to Migraine: The Trigeminally Mediated Disorders; Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention." The goal of this program is to take the mystery out of the cause and progression of TM disorders and to make the evidenced based information useful in this regard. From pratical and relevent anatomy and physiology to the important concept of trigeminally initiated and mediated parafunction and parafunctional control, this 5-part program will attempt to separate fact from fiction. Diagnostically driven concepts will be thoroughly reviewed. Specific injuries that lead to both acute and chronic pain patterns will be described in terms of causes, diagnosis and treatment. It will be demonstrated that dentists can play a key role in migraine headache as well as obstructive sleep disorders. In this first program, Dr. Gremillion discusses the importance of the understanding the anatomy and physiology of the masticatory system as a consideration for diagnosis. Diagnosis is the key to any effective treatment.
