This course is designed to demystify occlusion- an area of dentistry that can create a lot of confusion for many dentists. It will cover the anatomical, neurological and biomechanical basis for occlusion, how to obtain accurate records, the use of articulators and tips for fixed prosthodontics, restorative, implants and dentures. It will explain the relationship between TMD and occlusion for predictable restorative dentistry.
