Speaker: Jeffrey Goldberg, DDS ’03
Alumni Speaker Series
This course is recommended for everyone.
When patients suffer daily with headaches, jaw pain, or poor sleep, there are a lot of treatment options to consider. A mouthguard, or oral orthotic, can have tremendous impact, and we as dental professionals are the only ones to provide it. With a private practice and teaching career dedicated to the management of orofacial pain and sleep apnea, oral orthotics are a central element in Dr. Goldberg’s work. In this program, we talk about selecting the right orthotics for a variety of conditions, including TMJ disorders, bruxism, sleep apnea and snoring, medication delivery, athletics, and cosmetics. We look at the science behind why they work and the design elements essential for success. We will discuss the fabrication of orthotics, either on your own or with a dental lab, touching on emerging technologies like 3D printing, and expand on how the mouthguard fits into a total treatment plan. This presentation is for any dentist or team member interested in enjoying greater satisfaction with one of the most rewarding, safest, and least stressful areas of dentistry.
- Select an appropriate orthotic for a given condition
- Ensure that the orthotic is made right
- Manage the orthotic therapy component of a larger treatment plan
