“Practical Approach to Occlusion and Function”
DR. MIKE MIYASAKI
Many clinicians know their understanding of occlusion is holding them back while others continue to build upon their current knowledge. This course is for both. From Dentures to Implants and our restorative procedures in-between we appreciate that function is important for aesthetic and restorative success. In this course, we discuss what is seen every day and the advanced issues of wear and TMD. Dr. Miyasaki will discuss important integration points of how to discuss these issues with patients, alternatives of treatment, material selection, and when needed how to find and test the comfortable bite. Building on this understanding we will discuss the solutions we can offer our patients from simple to complex. The course is designed to provide you with usable information and techniques you can use to educate and treat your patients immediately to grow your practice.
- Give attendees an understanding of the anatomy and influences on the stomatognathic system
- Show attendees the current material choices for patients with functional issues
- Demonstrate how to find a comfortable bite and confirm it
- Have attendees understand how to have discussions with their patients and enroll them into further needed treatment
