Description:
This initial seminar in "The Concept of Complete Dentistry® Series" is your gateway to understanding the must-know factors of occlusion, TMJ and the foundation for becoming a complete dentist. Occlusal disease is the most overlooked problem in the dental practice today. This two-day course will teach attendees how to diagnose needed dentistry that often goes unrecognized and will open their eyes to untapped reservoirs of work that need to be performed on existing patients, as well as new ones. Attendees will learn to perform treatment predictably, eliminating the expense and frustration of costly mistakes.

Functional smile design is the key to predictable comfort, function and long-term stability for anterior aesthetic dentistry. There is no guess work required for even complex occlusal problems or TMJ disorders. There is a learnable reason for every tooth contour, position or inclination of teeth. There is a definite process for designing any and every smile. When this process is followed, the dentist will never end up with anterior teeth that look artificial or are uncomfortable or unstable. This two-day course is designed to help the dental professional understand why problems of dysfunction, discomfort or dissatisfaction with appearance occur and what to do about it.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • learn a scientifically based, practical approach to creating an ideal practice.
  • understand the critical factors for designing a stable, minimal occlusion and why this is the key to a thriving, profitable practice.
  • differentiate between low- and high-functional risk patients and treat both ideally.
  • review aesthetic principles and step-by-step treatment planning protocols to ensure beautiful, long-lasting success.
  • determine the best treatment option for occlusal correction (equilibration, orthodontics, restorative dentistry, orthognathic).
  • recognize how to alter the vertical dimension of occlusion, and why it is fundamental to solving patients’ problems.
  • learn how to get patients to say "yes" to treatment for cosmetic dentistry, implants and occlusal reconstruction, and take production and profitability to the next level.
