Dr. Prabu Raman, TMJ & Sleep Apnea dentist in Kansas City

The human body is amazingly inter-connected. A complex Temporo Mandibular Dysfunction case is characterized by multiple, seemingly unrelated, disabling, chronic symptoms with multiple contributory factors. Jaw mal-alignment is often the root cause of even debilitating, whole-body symptoms with many medical diagnoses and unsuccessful medical management.

This next-level course will provide an algorithm for successfully treating such complex cases. It was developed from decades of clinical practice exclusively devoted to TMD / Cranio Cervical Mandibular Dysfunction. Just as Global Positioning Satellite navigation system guides one to their destination, this Goals – Process – Success algorithm is a framework for predictably treating Complex TMD / CCMD cases and reach Success.

“Anyone who is treating TMJ / airway should attend. This program solidified my understanding further and helped with step-by-step protocol that works predictably.”

– Dr A. Merchant, Arizona

Raman CCMD protocol is a key component for obtaining optimally-unstrained jaw and neck relationship. It includes Cranio Cervical Physical Therapy to optimize the Atlas – Axis alignment. Attendees will learn the genesis of this protocol and the rationale for each component. Doctors will get hands-on training on this protocol. Recording the 3-dimensional structural discrepancy is the starting point of any treatment. Live patient “bite taking” demonstrations of recording the optimal PNMD jaw relation using Myotronics K7 x evaluation system will cement the nuances of recording bite, in a clinical setting.

Such a Physiological Neuromuscular Bite can be used for fabrication of Myoaligner, Vivos appliances, Removable or fixed NM orthotics, in preparation for NM orthodontics or Full Mouth Restorative treatments.
