A multi-disciplinary approach to treating patients with TMD

The Australian and New Zealand Society of Paediatric Dentists invited Travis Drummond to speak at their conference this week.

Travis discussed the importance of Physiotherapy and Dental interventions working together to assist patients with Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD).

He touched on externalities such as neck pain, head aches and importantly stress and anxiety having a major influence on the symptoms of TMD and how physio intervention can assist.
The invitation to speak at the conference shows the increasing dental approach to treating TMD as multi-disciplinary. Also the important role physiotherapy along with dental treatment plays in cases of TMD.
