SERIES 2

Advanced Bite and Orthotic Techniques:
Physiologic Dx/Tx Foundations

 

Hands-On Treatment Course with the J5 & K7

This is an intensive course that integrates the well-established physiologic neuromuscular principles into your practice to provide this most rewarding type of dentistry - treating the worn dentition, TMD, OSA, and aesthetic concerns of patients. There will be extensive Hands-on sessions to train you and your team on how to take an optimum TENS bite and use the K7 with confidence to properly adjust the finished orthotic; we refer to this reversible stabilization process as Phase I therapy.

 

Learn the proper workflow for successful and profitable implementation of Neuromuscular principles from initial marketing and consultation, patient preparation, work-up, bite registration, orthotic adjustments, and moving into the final phase of treatment (Phase II). There will be extensive discussion on effectively managing a patient with worn dentition or TMD. This course will also introduce the effects of an obstructed airway and how to look for this in your patients. You can maximize the learning of the techniques taught in this course by bringing your orthotic and your team's orthotics to the course. It is highly recommended that your key team members attend this course in order to support and successfully integrate the technology and techniques you will learn.

This course is taught by clinicians with extensive clinical experience in the diagnosis, treatment and case management of TMD, OSA and reconstruction patients. Attendance will be limited to 20 doctors and team.  

Course Overview - Day 1:

  • Discussion on the prevalence of mal-occlusion and it's etiology and an overview of physiologic dentistry and its application in practice

  • Taking an effective TENS bite to create an optimum orthotic

  • Introduction to the K7 Evaluation System and how it works with the Dental TENS to verify and maintain the correct bite for healing and stability. How to achieve precision, predictability and Dx/Tx confidence.

  • Bite registration and orthotic protocols to use when treating the worn dentition, TMD, OSA or aesthetic cases

  • Discussion of the proper selection of orthotics- removable, fixed or hybrid

  • Beyond deprogrammers and joint loading tests - using the power of technology for effective patient education and to set your practice apart

  • Coronoplasty protocols and the utilization of the K7 to adjust an orthotic to achieve a verifiable mandibular position for healing and stability

  • Effective treatment and patient management protocols utilizing an orthotic through reversible orthotic therapy (Phase I) and preparation for Phase II

  • How to train your team to support and implement the transition to Physiologic dentistry into your practice and to better identify TMD & Sleep patients and increase case acceptance

Afternoon

  • Establishing the bite with a Physiologic orthotic, confirm the patient's stability with the K7 and manage the bite for the patient's successful transition to Phase II

Hands-on

  • Live patient over-the-shoulder demonstration on how to take a K7 TENS Bite

  • Hands-on sessions with the K7 to develop confidence and proficiency with the K7 as a diagnostic and treatment tool

  • Application of Duotrodes on first group of attendees and TENSing to take a K7 TENS Bite

 


Course Overview - Day 2:

  • How to increase patient acceptance for transition to Phase II

         Hands-on

  • Hands-on sessions with the K7 to develop confidence and proficiency with the K7 as a diagnostic and treatment tool

  • Application of Duotrodes on second group of attendees and TENSing to take a K7 TENS Bite

Demonstration

  • Live patient over-the-shoulder demonstration on how to take a K7 TENS Bite and perform coronoplasty on an orthotic for successful Phase I therapy

Afternoon

  • Considerations for successful Phase II treatment. How to develop the case to move confidently into Phase II

  • Discussion of phase II options keeping minimally-invasive alternatives top of mind - veneers with preparation? orthodontics? and what happens if full-mouth rehabilitation is needed

  • Designing the ideal smile: Preparing restorations & material choices, functional considerations in smile design

  • How to best communicate with your lab to get the most accurate appliance possible and ensure it is successful the first time

  • Developing a team blueprint to launch your practice into the Diagnosis and Treatment considerations of OSA, TMD, Postural issues and Aesthetics, and how to manage patients and their cases and market the unique and valuable services you provide.
