Biofunctional and biomechanical disorders with oral structures, the temporomandibular joints that hinge the jaw, and muscular tension in the head and neck can contribute to migraine and tension headache symptoms. This can prove to be a significant hindrance to a patient’s overall quality of life. Sometimes it can even influence their satisfaction with dental and orthodontic treatment.
Here at the Advanced Prosthodontics Institute in Prescott, Arizona, our founder Dr. Jason Campbell has developed a course of continuing education on biofunctional dentistry. It includes important topics on diagnosis and care of patients who seek dental treatment for unresolved syndromic dental-medical problems.
The course has been designed to provide you with the advanced training, system support tools, knowledge, and skills to treat complex dental care issues. This expanded acumen will help you increase patient commitment to your practice to ultimately improve your profitability, increase referrals, and improve patient satisfaction rates.
The course on biofunctional disorders will cover a broad range of topics including the negative interactions between hard and soft tissues, bruxism, dental deterioration and the relationship between the bones and temporomandibular joints, as well as TMJ disorder.
These elements can all play an important factor or contribute to tension in the head and neck, which can exacerbate migraine and tension headache symptoms.
