In his webinar on February 19, 2010, Dr. Hindin links subjective patient reporting with objective measures using the latest physiological assessment technology for dental assessment. The scientific basis for physiologic assessment is presented based on the latest research data. A few case studies are shown. Different monitoring systems for research, clinic, and home training are shown. Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is discussed and its importance as a measure of change in autonomic nervous system functioning. Powerful multimedia feedback such as DVDs, music CDs and MP3s, selected by patients, can be used to entertain, amuse or relax as the patient practices at home what they have learned in the clinic. Simple session and trend reports help show the patient, and the dentist, the progress they are making on a regular basis.
Using this system, objective changes can be observed and recorded, for example, before and after the insertion of the orthotic and with each subsequent modification or adjustment, or with other dental procedures. The benefits of physiologic dentistry establish a greater awareness of the influence of dentistry on the entire body.
All lectures in this series are designed to provide guidance for both professionals and members of the public with special interest in the topics covered. Subscribers to this lecture series not only benefit by learning of the latest breakthroughs but also know that their contribution to the foundation’s International Research and Education Projects (IREP) help to advance studies and bring alternative and complementary medicine closer to home.
