Evaluating, establishing and maintaining an orthopedically stable occlusion is a foundation piece for all disciplines of dentistry.

Key anatomic variables that negatively influence occlusion will be singled out and discussed in this presentation.

Course Topics:

  • Develop a working knowledge of the dynamic interactions between teeth, muscles and TMJs.
  • Be able to recognize key anatomic variables that negatively affect occlusion.
  • Be able to apply problem solving strategies to determine the etiology of progressive occlusal changes.
