Description:
This lecture is designed to significantly enhance the dental hygienist’s knowledge of complete dentistry as it relates to periodontal health and occlusal stability. In this course, attendees will learn that the key to long-term success of optimum health begins with a thorough understanding of the masticatory system and the use of centric relation. Through the use of case demonstrations, attendees will understand the complete exam process, identify signs of occlusal instability and how they relate to patients’ symptoms and periodontal disease. Attendees also will learn communication skills necessary to transition patients to a “complete” dental practice. This lecture will reinforce the hygienist’s vital role in bringing the practice full circle for the development of optimum oral health and longevity for all patients!

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • determine a systematic approach to understanding centric relation dentistry and the importance of healthy occlusion.
  • recall head and neck anatomy as it relates to the temporomandibular joints, muscles and the bite. 
  • observe the role of occlusion in predictable, stable oral health. 
  • describe the relationship between occlusion and periodontal disease.     
  • identify the signs of occlusal instability and relate them to patients in an understandable way.
