Course summary

The aim of this course is to focus on the full restorative process from start to finish for compromised dentitions.  This is especially in relation to severely worn and collapsed dentitions with a special emphasis on understanding OVD and altering this when required.

The hands-on aspects will focus on TMJ and muscles of mastication assessment, CR determination and registration.

Course Aims/Objectives

Understand TMJ and disc pathology

Learn how to examine the TMJ and muscles of mastication.

Understand when to use a Kois deprogrammer.

Learn when to use CR and how to determine this using leaf gauge.

Understand when to increase OVD and its limitations.

When to use nightguards and splints, delivery of the splint and how to manage these cases.

Understand the full restorative processes and sequence for these complex cases.

Understanding equilibration and when and how to carry this out.

There will also be access given to 4 pre -course webinars 1 month prior to the course on the following topics-TMJ, CR and OVD.

Course Programme

DAY 1

TMJ

  • Disc pathology – how to differentiate it and when intervention is necessary
  • How to distinguish between locks of muscle and articular origin
  • Radiological picture of disorders of the temporomandibular joint
  • How to examine the temporomandibular joint
  • TMJ biomechanics necessary to understand stabilization

Workshop-Examination of muscles of mastication, joints.

Occlusal Philosophies – In Search of a Common Denominator

  • Over the past hundred years, we have seen at least five completely different condyle positions in the temporomandibular joint, and each position was considered the best. At the same time, the definition of the central relation itself has changed 26 times.
  • So let’s take a look at how it all started, how it changed and why many so-called occlusive philosophies contradict each other. Do we really have to take one of the “sides” or are there common denominators?

Bite Registration

  • 5 different condyle positions – webinar summary and answer to the question DO WE NEED A CENTRIC RELATION ? What the guidelines and professional ethics say in relation to the current state of scientific knowledge.
  • What is bite deprogramming? Is it science or pseudoscience? What are the indications and differences in the operation of individual deprogrammers?
  • Leaf gauge – What is it? When / should I use it? How to use it?
  • Demonstration of working with the leaf gauge

Workshop-Leaf Guage and CR

DAY 2

OVD

  • Vertical occlusal dimension – what are the limitations ? Should we be „that” precise ?
  • Leaf gauge in clinical practice
  • What is the ferule effect and which part of the tooth is the most important?
  • Biomechanics of damaged teeth
  • What type of crown-root post to choose? Standard, fiberglass or cast post?
  • Shoulderless preparation. Why ? How ? When ?

Nightguards (splints) – how  to help and not hurt. Algorithms and decision tree for full mouth reconstruction.

  • Nightguard/splints – when, what material? How to register the bite for the splint?
  • What contacts and guidance? Splint delivery and relining the splints.
  • Simple bite registration for full arches
  • Registration for cross mounting
  • When not to change the existing bite and to conform?
  • When should we choose a tool to make bite repeatable and easy to register ? Which tool should we choose ?

Equilibration and when is it needed?

What is equilibration? When do we use it and when is it not allowed to do so? P1, P2, P3

Differences between equilibration in MIP and in CR.

Electronic bite analyzers – T-scan and OccluSense

When to perform equilibration and when to increase the occlusal vertical dimension ?

Equilibration of interference during chewing

Equilibration in static and chewing – video step by step

Occlusion on implants

Case discussion and videos of step-by-step procedures from the first visit to cementation and equilibration.
