We have all heard the arguments. Does the occlusion cause the joint problem or does the joint cause the occlusal problem? What role do facial patterns & muscles play? This program takes many of the current concepts in these somewhat confusing disciplines &organizes them in a way so that most practitioners can comfortably differentiate the etiology of occlusal disease, diagnose TMJ disorders, & predict long term success for the restored or non-restored dentition. Orofacial Pain is one of the 2 new subject codes that became mandatory on Jan. 1, 2017, to be eligible for MAGD certification
