DENT 3118 - INTRODUCTION TO TEMPOROMANDIBULAR DISORDERS

[38 Credits]
Rename DENT 3118 Introduction to Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction to DENT 3118 Introduction to Temporomandibular Dysfunction. The rationale for change is the majority of disorders associated with the Tempromandibular region are muscular in nature. Not all disorders are from the bony joint itself. Tempromandibular dysfunction is the correct way to address problems in this area. The topics covered in this class will not change nor will the clock hours be modified. In this course, the anatomy and neurophysiology of the masticatory system are reviewed. Epidemiology, etiology, differential diagnoses, methods of evaluation and methods of treatment of temporomandibular disorders are presented. (Department of Prosthodontics)
