Botulinum Toxin (aka Botox/Dysport) has become a recognized treatment for TMD and craniofacial pain, however many dentists are unaware of the importance of incorporating EMG (electromyograph) analytics to improve diagnosis and treatment outcomes.
On the Live Dentistry Stage at the Pacific Dental Conference 2019, Dr. Roberts will demonstrate how EMG data is used to improve patient care by assisting with the diagnosis, dosage determination and injection timing. Dr. Roberts will then treat the patient using PTIFA’s injection technique that essentially eliminates negative side effects.
Speaker: Dr. Warren Roberts
Title: Live Dentistry Stage – EMG Guided Botulinum Toxin Therapy For TMD
Date: Thursday, March 7th, 2019
Location: Vancouver Convention Centre
Audience: Dentists + Dental Team (Reception, Chair-side, Hygienists)
- Understand how EMG’s are used to improve patient care when using botulinum toxin to therapeutically treat patents for TMD, bruxism and headaches.
- Understand how EMG’s are used for evaluating and recording the electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles and how they can reveal nerve dysfunction, muscle dysfunction or problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission.
- Learn how EMG’s can be used to determine the timing for re-injection, maintain the pain-free state, prevent relapse and improve patient care.
On Friday, March 8th, 2019, Dr. Jan Roberts will also be providing a hands-on training session at the PDC for Team Members wanting to learn how to integrate botulinum toxin (Botox/Dysport) into a dental practice.
