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. In this program, explore the challenges of occlusion we face, as dentists in a restorative practice, and how we can utilize this information to make our dentistry more predictable.

Learn to:

  • assess and manage occlusal risk
  • create an organized occlusion and equilibration
