Ft. Lauderdale — The new textbook "Understanding, Assessing & Treating Dentomandibular Sensorimotor Dysfunction" will be released during the Greater New York Dental Meeting. A $79 value, it will be available free to the first 100 visitors to booth No. 3302. Then it will be available during the GNYDM for the special show price of $39.
Dental headache care is a fast-growing niche in dentistry now that research demonstrates that stress and improper dental forces associated with the muscles, nerves, tendons, and ligaments within the mouth, jaw, neck, and face areas contribute to chronic headaches, migraines, and other symptoms.
"Understanding, Assessing & Treating Dentomandibular Sensorimotor Dysfunction" is an invaluable resource for dentists that defines the physiological and neurological anatomy in the dentomandibular area and its connection to pain. It also explains how dysfunction in this area can be the underlying cause of many chronic headaches and migraines — as well as other painful and discomforting symptoms — and how and why dentists are in the ideal position to treat them. A comprehensive rehabilitation therapy, which is discussed and illustrated in this well-referenced text, can be used effectively in the dental practice to target the heart of the dysfunction and sensorimotor inﬂuence.
Mark W. Montgomery, DMD, cocontributor, will be available on Nov. 26 from noon until 6 p.m. at booth No. 3302 to sign copies of the book. With illustrations, photographs, easy-to-follow tables, and a subject index, along with self-assessment quizzes following every chapter, the book is an educational volume sure to enlighten and inspire dentists interested in doing more to relieve their patients' pain.
With a forward by Roger Levin, DDS, and an editorial board that includes Martin Jablow, DMD, Ron Ritsco, DMD, and John Schwartz, DDS, the book is also a must-read for dentists looking to stabilize the dental foundation prior to undertaking smile designs or full-mouth reconstructions.
