tmj videoThe term occlusion can be a tricky concept for even the most seasoned dental team member. In order to completely grasp the topic of occlusion, it helps to stay acquainted with the four components of the masticatory system – the joints, muscles, teeth and periodontium.

Our new staff training course, A Deeper Look at Occlusion for the Dental Team: Temporomandibular Joint, is designed to provide the participant a thorough understanding of the temporomandibular joints.

After viewing this lesson, your team will be able to:
  • Identify the four key components that affect confusion

  • Identify the components/anatomy of the TMJ

  • Understand “ideal function” of the TMJ

  • Understand common causes for TMJ dysfunction

  • Identify the key components of the TMJ exam

  • Understand how the TMJ exam affects the rest of the larger system
