This two hour course clarifies many of the common myths of occlusion that is being taught and provides the ability to implement the reality based concepts to improve one’s ability to help each and every patient. Basic concepts are reviewed to help end much of the confusion associated with the term “TMD.” This is THE occlusion course that makes the lives of dentists easier by giving useful common sense advice. Basic TMD concepts in terms of joint anatomy and physiology and are reviewed so that common patient reports of pain and dysfunction can be more readily diagnosed and conservatively treated.
Dentists have spent much time, money, and effort in order to gain a greater understanding of these basic concepts, and in the end, often the result is increased confusion and frustration. Our goal in this two hour presentation is to take the information taught and put it all in some realistic perspective. Often times procedures may be successful for reasons that are different than that which we assumed, leading us to some form of confirmation bias of a particular concept. These two hours will make that process clear, and help you to apply evidenced based science to the empirical nature of our knowledge base of occlusion.
