Diagnosis, Prevention & Management of Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD)

This course provides a foundational understanding of the temporomandibular muscle and joint (TMJ) anatomy, structure, function, and common TMDs and orofacial pain evaluation. It offers evidence-based treatment options aimed at alleviating TMD pain and dysfunction. The clinical approach shifts from procedure-based dentistry to diagnosis-based staged care, aligning with the medical model. Students learn interdisciplinary care concepts, including intra-oral splints, physical therapy, pharmacotherapy, and self-care, along with risk assessment and medical screening tools. The course also covers pain mechanisms, TMD progression, and prevention techniques.

Oral and Oropharyngeal Malignant Lesions; a Comprehensive Review of the Causes, Role of HPV, Preventive Strategies, Management, Radiographic Appearance and Screening


Mounting evidence now establishes a link between a specific subset of human papillomavirus (HPV) and oral cavity cancer, particularly in the context of oropharyngeal carcinoma (OPC). HPV-positive OPC is characterized by a younger demographic, often males, who are non-smokers with a higher socio-economic status. Additionally, a stronger association has emerged between HPV-positive OPC and orogenital sexual contact. We use a hybrid module in this course including interactive lectures, real cases and hands on exercises to review the head and neck examination, comprehensive oral cancer screening, using different adjunctive tools and review the radiographic features.

ATRAUMATIC RESTORATIVE TREATMENT

Dental caries is a prevalent chronic disease, with disparities in treatment, especially among low-income families. Despite the push for medical management of caries, adoption has been slow in North America. Professor Jo Frencken introduced the Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART) over 35 years ago, emphasizing minimal invasiveness using high-viscosity glass-ionomer cement. Initially for resource-limited areas, ART is now globally recognized, with 800+ studies by 2023. Recent meta-analyses show ART's effectiveness matches traditional methods. ART's painless approach benefits children, the elderly, and those with challenges, avoiding dental anxiety. It's mobile, aerosol-free, and seen by many dentists as a practice enhancer.
