About the Event

Occlusion is of key importance in every dental procedure yet is not well understood by most clinicians, and therefore, is underdiagnosed hindering practice growth.  By understanding the anatomy and applying a few basic principles, we can find and create a predictable bite to support the joints and muscles. Whether restoring a single tooth, an aesthetic case or treating a TMD patient, you will apply what you learn in this course. Perhaps the most important reason to attend is that without an understanding of the signs and symptoms of malocclusion, our profession will continue to treat to existing pathological conditions leading to frustration of our patients and ourselves as clinicians. 

Neuromuscular (Physiologic) occlusal principles can provide a simple, reproducible bite conducive to health, aesthetics and restorative predictability and longevity.
