Oral Sensory Phantoms for the General Dentist

User Ratings -

Course Description

What do burning mouth, metallic tastes, atypical odontalgia, bite discomfort and dry mouth have in common?


Oral sensory phantoms are a part of everyone's dental practice no matter what area of specialty. However, they often go unrecognized and untreated, often resulting in unnecessary dental treatment, a very unhappy patient and a frustrated dental team.  With the aid of the new and exciting research that is now available to explain many of these oral sensory changes, diagnosis and treatment have improved dramatically.  This information should be a must-know for every dental office.

This talk will focus on the clinical presentation of each these conditions and an evidence-based approach to treatment.  By the end of the talk, the audience should have a much better appreciation for many of the "strange' things seen in dentistry and what to do about them. Audience members are encouraged to bring cases for discussion.
