Description of the course

The PASC ® "Cranial Considerations: “TMJ - The hidden imposter” course provides a theoretical basis of impact of the TMJ on the body. The concept of "optimal functional position” ®, (OFP) is based on the orthodontic application of “centric relation". This concept is incorporated into the existing "TMJ" treatment. Thorough anatomy, physiology and pathology of the joint are discussed.

Class teaching format

Classroom interactive presentation including lecture and practical participation. Participants will be instructed on the assessment process and then given time to assess and treat - including the concepts covered in the class. Re-evaluation of techniques, to validate the outcomes.

Course rationale

By including the dental concept of "optimal functional position" in the correction process, the effectiveness of the treatments is improved dramatically, not only for the TMJ but also for the rest of the body.
