page-image-russia2“The Efficiency of Physiologic Neuromuscular Dentistry in Occlusal Reconstruction”

The widespread need for occlusal reconstruction among the general populace is correlated with the extent of anerobic metabolism at external (airway) and internal (cellular) levels of respiration. Producing a plethora of clinical signs and symptoms musculoskeletal dysfunction (MSD) significantly defines the weak link in the postural chain in which anomalous tooth eruption is identified as the principal factor.

Failure of collagen maturation principally in the periodontal ligament in association with cranio-cervicomandibular musculoskeletal instabilityr is an oxygen dependent system utilizing lysyl oxidase the prime mover of the periostin macromolecule.

Thus treatment revolves around promotion of aerobiosis by increased ATP production by transcutaneous electrical stimulation of the neuromuscular triad (occlusion,tmjs and neuromuscular system)

page-image-russia3“Your TMD patient does not sleep”
Understand the TMD/OSA,UARS relation
Screening & diagnosing accurately TMD / OSA,UARS
Appropriately treating TMD / OSA,UARS

Abstract:

A drug that does not have to be ingested, has no side effects, increases mood, pumps up the immune system, makes one more alert and more productive, decreases auto accidents, strengthens personal relationships, makes you more attractive and feels great.

What is this magical potion? Sleep Myofacsial Pain(MFP) / TMD SBD are two important factors affecting sleep.

Are they interrelated? HOW?

When the American Academy of Sleep Medicine published their Practice Parameters for the Treatment of Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea with Oral Appliances: An Update for 2005, they recommended that dentists treating sleep apnea be experienced in treating TMJ disorders.

WHY?

Many Big Names in Sleep Medicine (Kushida,Guilleminault) describe their OSA/UARS patient
s being
craniofacially compromised: increased palatal height, narrow dental arches ,retrognathia, increased
overjet etc…
Aren’t those a description of our so called” PSYCHOSOCIAL TMD”..???
If TMD is “psychosocial”,is sleep breathing disorders (SBD) “psychosocial” too?
Aren’t we supposed to screen & treat our patients for both problems concomitantly for better
Prognosis? If YES ,HOW?

page-image-russia4“Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) Controversy and Current Neuromuscular Treatment”

There has been controversy in dentistry for years as to whether temporomandibular disorders (TMD) are physical functional diseases or bio-psychosocial illnesses. The difference between the two and how they are treated will be discussed. The overwhelming majority of treating dentists worldwide believe TMD is a functional disease and treat that to restore healthy function.

TMD represents a group of disorders involving the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) masticatory muscles, dental occlusion and associated neurological structures. The diagnosis, clinical presentation and treatment of TMD, utilizing neuromuscular testing devices, techniques and therapies will be presented including a patient case study.

Shamshudin (Sam) Kherani, DDS, FAGD, MICCMO (USA)

page-image-russia5“Predictable Hole–in-One with the first NM bite”

Neuromuscular treatment begins with creating a balance within the stomatognathic system. Such balance is brought about by first having the patient go through a reversible Phase 1 orthotic treatment. The quality of the first bite that is obtained will determine the success and the length of time that it takes to reach this balance.

There are many factors that hinder such an endeavor and therefore attention to detail with respect to Posture, Temporomandibular Joint Decompression, staying within the Zone of Comfort, lack of any Human Interference allows the practitioner to obtain the best possible bite at the first significant appointment.

Not paying attention to such detail will lead to either a failure to reach such balance or may result in the Phase 1 reversible treatment to be a lot longer than it needs to be. Such length in Phase 1 treatment time can lead to lack of compliance even by the well meaning patient.

Curtis Westersund, DDS, FICCMO (Canada)

page-image-russia6“You got your NM bite, now let’s deliver the orthotic”
Once you have invested the time and effort to find the best physiologic bite for your patient, you have to successfully deliver and balance their new orthotic.
Your success at this stage will determine if your patient is going to walk away feeling balanced, comfortable and happy. And you want to be able to balance this orthotic accurately and quickly.

Accurately since your patient’s success depends on it. And quickly because you do not wish to have your office tied up with multiple patient visits.

Prabu Raman, DDS, MICCMO (USA)

page-image-russia8“Power of Physiologic Neuromuscular Dentistry: Orthodontic preparation for Full mouth reconstruction”

Physiologic Neuromuscular Dentistry has the power to solve even “hopeless” cases. By preparing arches through orthodontia, optimal results are achieved with Full Mouth Reconstruction.

Dr. Raman would illustrate this through a case that was scheduled for prosthetic TM joint replacement and another diagnosed as Fibromyalgia at Mayo Clinic.

page-image-russia9“How to Stop the Midbrain from Hijacking Your Dental Procedures“

Nearly 1 out of 5 people avoid the dentist altogether. 82% of the people who do go to the dentist report some level of anxiety. This phenomenon exists in the midbrain, not in the dental chair! It’s time to change the way people perceive the dental experience.

Learn how advances in neuroscience can transform the dental visit from a stressful, exhausting ordeal into an opportunity to relax, rejuvenate, and optimize the clinical experience.

NuCalm® is an all-natural stress intervention technology that addresses dental anxiety at its source in the midbrain. This revolutionary neuroscience technology is proven to naturally relax the body within minutes, without drugs.

By naturally inducing parasympathetic nervous system dominance in every patient, NuCalm enables clinicians and dental teams to safely control the most complex, unpredictable, and unreliable part of dentistry – the patient.
