Patients often have problems where their teeth or temporomandibular joint function are part of a bigger picture of their health and function. Many of these people are already very knowledgeable about their own needs may already have care in place from a trusted dentist, osteopath, chiropractor, physical therapist or other professional. At Granta Dental we would always prefer to work in collaboration to help with diagnosis and treatments for which we have particular expertise while maintaining existing patient/professional relationships by means of good communications and a desire to work collaboratively. Why not join our growing network by registering your details here and find details of our planned co-treatment days here.
Appropriate and effective patient care relies on accurate diagnosis. Objective recording and assessment is key to both diagnosis and risk assessment prior to treatment. At Granta Dental we use a range of biometric measuring devices in conjunction with a clinical diagnostic protocol to provide information about temporomandibular joint, muscle and occlusal condition and function. A stand-alone diagnostic screening package is available for patients on referral from their dentist either prior to treatment or to monitor treatment outcomes and stability. Request this service for your patients by clicking here. Or find out how to do this yourself by attending one of our new courses.
Research and Study
We are keen to share our resources with interested colleagues and clinical partners. Articles, course notes, proforma forms for treatments and diagnosis and the specialist bibliographies that form our library at Granta Dental are available on request. To access these we ask you to register your details with us and consider membership of the British Society for the Study of Craniomandibular Disorders.
