Clinical Application of Head, Neck, and Airway Anatomy with Dissection
Next Upcoming Session:
Overview & Objectives
Attendees will participate in an in-depth dissection of the head, neck, and airway over a two-day period. Working in two-member teams, each participant will dissect half of a cadaver head. The head, neck, and airway will be dissected to demonstrate the relationship of structures to orofacial pain conditions including TMD and sleep breathing disorders. The group will focus on osteology, the oral cavity, the digastric triangle, and the temporomandibular joint.
After participating in this activity, participants should be better able to recognize, evaluate, diagnose, manage, and refer patients who have TMD, sleep disorders, and often types of orofacial pain.
