  • Steven Bender, DDS
  • Oral splints are traditionally considered to be removable devices that cover all or some of the dentition and create a different occlusal relationship when the teeth come together on it. Other terms used are: bite guard, night guard, occlusal guard, bite splint, occlusal orthopedic device, etc. Often recommended for temporomandibular disorders, it is not fully evident how these appliances help in the management of these disorders. This session will examine the various types of oral appliances and examine the relevant literature concerning their use. Potential clinical applications will also be discussed.
  • Learning objectives; 1) Understand the 5 basic oral appliance types 2) Appreciate the clinical indications for each appliance type 3) Gain a basic understanding of the relevant literature concerning these devices 4) Learn predictable fabrication techniques of the stabilization appliance.

  • Dennis Bailey, DDS
  • Sleep and Sleep Medicine is a dynamic area of medicine and healthcare and this makes it one of the most interesting areas in which to practice. There are new findings every day that impact the practice of sleep medicine both for physicians and dentists alike. This forum will highlight many of the new findings in sleep medicine as well as the management of sleep disorders specifically as they apply to the dentist with an interest in this ever changing field as well as those who manage orofacial pain and headaches. The focus will be on how new evidence is impacting the practice of sleep medicine from diagnosis to management and will also look at the current state of home sleep testing (portable Monitoring).

  • Gregg H. Gilbert, DDS, MBA Director, National Dental Practice-Based Research Network
  • Session Synopsis: A practice-based research network (PBRN) is a consortium of dental practices and clinics that has affiliated to investigate research questions and quality improvement, and to engage in collegial sharing of experiences and expertise. PBRNs conduct research that is done in and about the “real world” of daily clinical practice, where the overwhelming majority of the population receives its dental care. In April 2012 that National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) awarded a seven-year grant to fund the new National Dental Practice-Based Research Network. Following a successful seven-year period with three regional networks, this award consolidates the three formerly regional initiatives into a unified national effort to engage all regions of the United States. The University of Alabama at Birmingham serves as the national administrative center for six regional centers. In addition to the Birmingham location are centers in Rochester, New York; Gainesville, Florida; Minneapolis, Minnesota; San Antonio, Texas; and Portland, Oregon. The network aims to improve the nation’s oral health by improving the knowledge base for clinical decision-making and moving the latest evidence into routine care. The initiative comprises a national investment by NIDCR in the dental profession and its scientific basis. Practitioners can enroll by visiting NationalDentalPBRN.org and following instructions from there.
  • Learning Objectives: (1) Learn what practice-based research networks (PBRNs) are, what they do, and what their objectives are; (2) Learn what the new National Dental Practice-Based Research is and what its plans and objectives are; (3) Learn how your participation can benefit you, your clinic, and your patients.

  • Mark Drangsholt, DDS, MPH, PhD
  • Many pain conditions, especially neuropathies, present with no obvious clinical findings except the report of pain, and are essentially “invisible” to the clinician. What new diagnostic methods are available that may visibly show the pathologic processes? Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST) is method whereby controlled, precise stimuli are applied to body surfaces, measuring the patient’s response to touch, cold, hot, vibration along with pain from cold, heat and mechanical stimuli. The range of quantified responses to these stimuli are now known in healthy controls and in many different clinical disorders, and indicates the underlying neural function of the region. Can they be used for orofacial pain? Both research and clinical work over the past 5 years shows that QST holds promise for the early diagnosis and targeted management of orofacial pain conditions, ultimately showing a visual “picture” of a trigeminal neurosensory disorder.
  • Learning objectives: 1. To understand the rationale and use of Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST). 2. To learn how QST can be applied to the trigeminal region, in and out of the mouth. 3. To learn some preliminary chair-side neurosensory tests to differentiate neuropathic from nociceptive orofacial pain.

  • William Maixner, DDS, PhD
  • Common persistent pain conditions (CPPCs) are composed of aggregates of phenotypes (signs and symptoms) associated with peripheral and central nervous system dynamics, stress responsiveness and inflammatory states. Complex molecular networks underlie these heterogeneous phenotypes and these networks are shaped by intrinsic polygenetic factors and environmental events such as physical injury and psychological stressors. Dr. Maixner will discuss emerging concepts and knowledge of the contribution of genetic variants, including recent discoveries that emphasize a genetic contribution to human pain perception CPPCs. He will present findings from recently completed and ongoing (see www.oppera.org) cross-sectional and prospective studies that examine the biopsychosocial and genetic factors contributing to the onset and maintenance of CPPCS. Finally, he will discuss emerging bioinformatic technologies that are proving useful in unraveling molecular networks that contribute to the clinical phenotypes observed in subpopulations of patients with persistent pain conditions. Reference: Journal of Pain, Volume 12, Issue 11, Supplement, Pages A1-A8, T1-T108 (November 2011)
  • Learning Objectives: 1. To become knowledgeable in current concepts associated with etiological pathways associated with common persistent pain conditions 2. To become knowledgeable in how to assess the biopsychosocial and molecular pathways that underlie heterogeneous common persistent pain conditions. 3. To become knowledgeable of the emerging concepts and technologies that may improve the diagnosis and treatment of patients with common persistent pain conditions.

  • Mark Weisberg, PhD, ABPP
  • Often, the most challenging patients in clinic suffer from persistent pain that is not necessarily associated with corresponding fluctuations or progression of specific physical disease. When the patient presents with such chronic pain that has been resistant to medical therapeutic attempts, it is often because a patient’s emotional, cognitive, behavioral, and social experiences have been overlooked, or these psychophysiological perpetuating factors have been untreated. When these psychophysiological variables are addressed, a better understanding of how they affect the etiology and maintenance of chronic pain can assist in more effective conceptualization and treatment. In this presentation, Dr. Weisberg will describe the numerous interactive variables that influence the chronic pain syndromes exhibited by the challenging patient, and will explain how to effectively assess the challenging patient.
  • Learning Objectives: 1. Participants will define what constitutes a “challenging patient”, and describe at least 2 ways why these patients appear to be treatment-resistant. 2. Participants will learn at least 3 variables that tend to be missing from the assessment of the challenging pain patient. 3. Participants will learn at least 6 important variables to examine in the assessment of the challenging patient.

  • William Maixner, DDS, PhD
  • The identification of key phenotypic and molecular pathways that confer risk for chronic pain conditions will enable the elucidation and validation of “biomarkers” that will assist with the develop of new strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of complex persistent pain conditions. Dr. Maixner will discuss emerging concepts on how to identify biomarkers and how biomarkers can be used for the diagnosis and treatment of chronic pain conditions. The use of biomarkers in the identification of novel therapeutic targets for the treatment of persistent pain conditions will also be described.
  • Learning Objectives 1. To become knowledgeable in current concepts associated with the definition of biomarkers. 2. To become knowledgeable in how to measure biomarkers that discriminate between heterogeneous subpopulations of patients with common persistent pain conditions. 3. To become knowledgeable of the emerging concepts and technologies that can be used to measure and validate biomarkers.
