First peer-to-peer training for new TMJD treatment is launched
A recent survey conducted among dental professionals about their success treating temporomandibular joint disorder, found 80% of respondents said they have patients suffering from TMJD whom they are unable to help.
Faced with an intractable problem where the primary solution until now has been bite splints that have notoriously poor patient compliance levels, some forward thinking dentists have been quick to see the potential offered by a new device – known as Cerezen.
How it works
The devices are inserted into the auditory canal and are clinically proven to reduce the symptoms of temporo-mandibular joint disorders (TMJD), including facial pain, bruxism and associated headaches. One of these dentists, Dr Lance Knight, has found the device so successful with his TMJD patients that not only has he become an eager prescriber but he has also agreed to host the Cerezen discovery days at his Manchester training facility, The Fold – where like-minded dental professionals who want to prescribe Cerezen in their practice can learn everything involved in the CerezenTM treatment process
Beside hearing about the most recurrent TMJD symptoms reported in practice, attendees will also be briefed about the anatomy of the ear by an audiologist on site. Dates are: 19 March 16 April and 14 May.
Dr Knight commented: ‘As a dentist, patients with jaw pain are notoriously difficult to treat as the current regime of nightguard/splint therapy is cumbersome and daytime wear is almost non-existent. Patients cannot wear a mouthguard whilst at work at the office! Having a more discreet effective treatment for pain/grinding and clenching is what our profession has been crying out for. With Cerezen, my patients have an effective treatment that they can wear all day no matter what they are doing.’
Each delegate will leave with a Cerezen practice kit comprising demonstration devices, POS literature and leaflet stand plus a practice copy of patient in a box only available to delegates who attend one of the Cerezen discovery days. The normal course fee is £399, however delegates will pay only £249 (saving £150) if they attend the course on 19 March. Places are limited to 15 places on each date. Each course delivers six hours of CPD.
