Dentistry 250 177Temporomandibular dysfunction in dentistry (2 day course)
Most common and the most influencing symptom of the cranial mandibular dysfunction is musculoskeletal pain. There is a broad international consensus that pain in temporomandibular dysfunctions is due to a multifactorial disorder of the chewing system. During the therapy the physical therapist and the dentist have the most important and central role. Requirements for a successful interdisciplinary work are not only the personal clinical experience but also the knowledge about diagnostic and therapeutic models of the partners in the interdisciplinary team.
