Occlusion In Everyday Dentistry
August 17 @ 9:00 am - August 18 @ 3:00 pm$895
Have you ever wondered why, after prepping a second molar for a crown, the occlusal of the prep is in contact with the opposing tooth? Every time we alter the chewing surface of a tooth we impact the entire stomatognathic system. Often the patient adapts to these changes. But when they don’t it can jeopardize the restoration, the other teeth, and can cost us the patient’s trust, not to mention our time. This course will explore the challenges of occlusion we face everyday in a restorative practice and look at how we can utilize this information to make our dentistry more predictable and help our patients stay healthy and comfortable.
- Diagnosing Functional Risk: Joint: Muscle and Functional Exam
