Applied Occlusal Principles

Once you have a good understanding of the theory of occlusion it’s time to put it to use. Our Small Group practical courses take you to the next level, teaching you the Hands-On Skills to manage your patients, using your own patients!

This hands-on programme is conducted in a modern, well equipped multi-operatory Private Practice in Reading utilising one-on-one supervision with patients from each dentist’s practice, making this the most practical, efficient and cost-effective occlusion learning experience available in dentistry.

These sessions teach you to treat your own patients:

  • How to conduct a thorough occlusal examination, how to manipulate your patient to CR, how to carry out muscle and joint palpation.
  • How to find Centric Relation, how to take a Facebow and Bite Records, and how to use them to properly mount your own models on an articulator.
  • How to choose an articulator, how to set it for your patient and how to use it properly.
  • How to make a properly adjusted Stabilisation Splint.
  • Jigs, NTIs and partial splints -when to use and when not to.
  • We will explain why Equilibration is misunderstood and why it DOESN’T damage teeth in a properly selected patient. We show you how to Equilibrate your patient’s models and the additive and reductive techniques you can use to create a harmonious Occlusion for your patient.

As well as learning all these skills, you will have an introduction to TMD, giving you an understanding of when and how you may treat these patients and whether you should be concerned if your patient has a click.

Occlusion Management is fundamental to the delivery of first class dentistry and occlusal knowledge saves you from many mistakes and failures.

There is no better format to learn these skills than in limited attendance seminars using hands-on training with your own patients in a Practice environment!
