Course Content

This course deals with oral movement disorders, notably awake and sleep
bruxism, tardive dyskinesia and oromandibular dystonia. Oral movement
disorders are common causes for dental problems like TMD pain and tooth
wear (attrition). Therefore, this course touches the edges of the
courses on TMD and Tooth Wear & Restorative Dentistry. Further, sleep
bruxism has been dealt with during the course on Dental Sleep Disorders,
albeit in lesser depth and detail than in this course. Especially from a
diagnostic point of view, oral movement disorders require a
multidisciplinary approach, notably the involvement of a neurologist.
The treatment of all oral movement disorders but (in most cases) bruxism
belongs in the hands of the neurologist as well.
