Dentist training course
Join our list of TMD Certified Dentists by completing our training course
Are you a Dentist with experience in treating patients with TMD and have previously offered in-ear devices such as Cerezen to help treat TMD related pain?
JawGuard is an innovative in-ear device which helps provide support to the condylar head and retrodiscal tissues of the TMJ. This support also helps provide biomechanical feedback and dissuades TMD sufferers from clenching and grinding habits that put additional strain on the TMJ and associated musculature.
To be registered on our list of JawGuard certified Dentists, you will be required to complete our training course. This course will instruct you on ear canal anatomy and pathologies as well as ear impression taking, TMD patient assessment and instructions on JawGuard.
You will also be provided with a free set of JawGuards and impression taking kit.
See below for a full outline.
