SERIES 2

Advanced Bite and Orthotic Techniques, and Creating the BluePrint for Integration Success

 

Hands-On Treatment Course

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

  • Overview of physiologic dentistry and its application in practice

  • Introduction to the K7 Evaluation System and utilizing the Dental TENS and the K7 for the diagnosis and treatment of patients beginning with the bite registration

  • How to achieve precision, predictability and Dx/Tx confidence utilizing the K7

  • 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

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

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

  • The importance of the team- how to train your team to support and implement the transition to Physiologic dentistry into your practice

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

Afternoon

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

Hands-on
