TMD—An Insider's Guide to Parafunction: The When and Why of Treatment

Educational Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:

•Redefine occlusion and recognize the underlying cause of related problems.

•Describe the nature and multiple presentations of parafunction.

•List the goals and methods of parafunctional control.

•Evaluate the correlation between bruxism and chronic migraines/headaches.

Abstract

This webinar will give insight into the nature of masticatory parafunction, which can produce different problems in each patient. For example, one patient may display disabling headache pain or joint damage in the absence of any tooth wear, while another may show complete dental destruction with an asymptomatic presentation. Understanding the nature of parafunction helps dictate the appropriate therapy.
