Course Description

Trauma from Occlusion and Dental Mobility have been poorly studied by the scientific literature, especially in recent years. Nevertheless dental mobility is one of the most obvious symptom that a patient can experience when is affected by severe periodontitis.

We increasingly observe a tendency to replace mobile teeth with more stable titanium screws, but this is not the clinical and scientific approach we want to offer to our patients.

Particular attention will be paid to interdisciplinary treatment which may include simple or complex occlusal, orthodontic and prosthetic therapies.

Learning Objectives
  • Evidence and limitation of trauma from occlusion literature
  • Importance of occlusion in Stage III and IV Periodontitis
  • Differential diagnosis of tooth mobility
  • Use of different kinds of treatment modalities to manage occlusal problems
