“Clinical Anatomy of the Head and Neck,” received with great enthusiasm by general practitioners and specialists, is being presented for the 35th year. This course provides the foundation for improving dentists’ day-to-day practice. A significant part of the course is devoted to dissecting pertinent regions of the head and neck.
This course should teach participants to discuss/describe:
• Radiological anatomy of the skull, emphasizing maxilla and mandible as organs
• Clinical anatomy and pathophysiology of TMJ (expanded to include arthrography, CT, MRI and microscopic study of joint components by participants)
• Anatomy, histology and imaging of maxillary sinus and surgical access for sinus augmentation
• Bone grafts and their clinical applications to implants
• Clinical anatomy of local anesthesia (to include Gow Gates Technique and V2 block anesthesia)
• Neurological examination of the head (available also as podcast)
• Nerve response to injury and post-traumatic neuralgia
• Anatomical basis of emergency treatment; hemorrhage and airway management
• Surgical spaces of the head and neck and spread of dental infection
• Surgical anatomy of the floor of the mouth with emphasis on nerves and arteries that need protection during implant insertion
The laboratory component of this course includes dissecting muscles of facial expression, facial nerve, infratemporal fossa and floor of the mouth. Vital structures exposed by mucoperiosteal flaps at various sites of the oral cavity will be emphasized. The course will include a laboratory exercise where interested participants will insert implants in cadaver jaws and access intraoral bones and maxillary sinuses.
