Practical TMD Therapy

Bangkok, TH & Zoom Livestream
9am – ICT TH Timezone

Most doctors treating TMD focus on treating the symptoms of the problem such as head and neck pain and vertigo. We approach the treatment from a different perspective. If the clinician can correctly diagnose and treat the internal derangement the symptoms (external derangements) will self-correct.

Once the TMD issues have been resolved the patient will have a totally different occlusion. This new correct occlusion is usually created by using TMJ based orthodontics. It may also involve full mouth reconstruction or a removable prothesis like an over-lay partial denture.

Understanding the TMJs will change the way you practice dentistry!

You will learn:

  • Anatomy of the T.M.J.
  • How to diagnosis the various joint dysfunctions.
  • The cause of external derangements such as head & neck pain, back and shoulder pain, vertigo, tinnitus, and Tourettes syndrome.
  • How to select and adjust the appropriate splint
  • Phase Two stabilization with TMJ orthodontics, reconstruction, and with removable prosthesis.

Dr Skip Truitt B.S., D.D.S.

Dr Truitt’s decades of expertise merging orthopedics and specialty orthodontics is unrivaled.

For over 40 years, he’s been teaching dentists how to become specialists in maxillofacial orthopedics and specialty orthodontics, and he’s graduated over 200,000 students from his programs across 5 continents.

Dr Truitt has also co-authored four text books and published numerous papers worldwide on the subjects of Maxillofacial Orthopedics, Orthodontics, and TMD Therapy.

“For decades, I’ve educated doctors of all ages, experience, and focused on the general development and growth of the human jaw as well as how their size and position relate to proper joint function and overall good oral health. Every jaw is different, and as such, needs to be cared for in different ways.”

J. Wellington “Skip” Truitt B.S.,D.D.S.

Dr. Truitt is the biggest secret in dentistry. His easy approach to teaching is very successful. I am a general dentist that has started over 100 cases in a year and a half. I wish I had met Dr. Truitt earlier in my 16 years of practice.

Skip, I began my orthodontic education with you 36 years ago and took all of your courses along with many other courses since. I have been providing exceptional orthodontic treatment on every level of difficulty all of these years since. I cannot imagine not having the understanding of orthodontics, as I treatment plan difficult cases today
