Occlusion anomalies can be a particularly difficult diagnostic and treatment scenario that will be explored in this presentation. Evaluating, establishing and maintaining an orthopedically stable occlusion is a foundation piece for the dental practitioner. The interaction of muscles, teeth, jaws and TMJs will be explored with the use of imaging. Key anatomic variables that negatively influence occlusion will be singled out and discussed in this presentation. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Develop a differential diagnosis and decision tree for investigating occlusal anomalies.
  • You will know and apply discriminating features of the various occlusal anomalies.
  • You will know how to determine if an occlusal anomaly is progressive.
