Course Description

All dentists learned the basics of occlusion in dental school. Yet, understanding the role of occlusion in clinical practice has taken a back seat now that the newer technologies and materials demand our attention. Knowing and applying the principles of occlusion remain vitally important in ensuring clinical success and patient satisfaction.

This course will review basic occlusion and show how its principles apply to periodontics, restorative dentistry, implants, endodontics, orthodontics oro-fascial pain, and esthetics.
