This session will look at the signs and symptoms of neurological disorders and how the dental practitioner may recognise them.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • List the signs and symptoms associated with neurological conditions
  • Describe the function of different cranial nerves and the physical effects that can occur when these cranial nerves are damaged
  • Describe the clinical relevance of cranial nerves

Neurology is one discipline the majority of dental practitioners feel uncertain about and are therefore reluctant to embark on diagnostic and therapeutic exercises.
