Webinar | Airway & TMD - What's the Connection?

This webinar highlights the connection and studies between UARS and TMD that relate to breathing disordered sleep. Dr. Witt Wilkerson shares valuable insights gained from several years of intense study of these overlapping subjects.

During this webinar, you will recognize the connections between Airway and TMD by studying the subjects side by side. TMD is a basket syndrome with common symptoms such as sore muscles/joints, bruxism, headaches, and chronic fatigue. Interestingly, those are exactly the same symptoms experienced by many patients with the medical diagnosis of Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS), a problem related to breathing disordered sleep.

Learning Objectives:

  • Implement use of the IDM Checklist for clinical use
  • Describe the relationship of disordered breathing and TMD
  • Identify the common symptoms associated the TMD
