"It’s All About the Bite- A Simplified Approach to Occlusion"
DR. JEFF HOROWITZ
This lecture was adapted from a magazine article written by the presenter for the general public in South Carolina. It has been re-printed no less than three times and always generates a slew of calls, letters, and e-mail inquiries. We all know how much time was spent on Occlusion in dental school, as well as the practicality of utilizing that information in private practice. The reality is, that a mishandled bite can lead to myriad of iatrogenic problems for our patients. These conditions include but are not limited to pulpal pathology, orthodontic, periodontal or TMJ changes, bite collapse and dysfunction. Upon completion of this course, the participant will know how to recognize, diagnose, treat and prevent some of the most common bite conditions. while incorporating this knowledge into their restorative care.
- The proper examination protocol for Occlusal disorders.
- Proper record taking and interpretation for Occlusal/TMJ discrepancies.
- How to differentiate between bruxism(parafunction), clenching(dysfunction), and a restricted envelope of function(constriction) as well as how to determine which, if any require correction.
- How to treatment plan for specific occlusal discrepancies, and avoid the most common pitfalls during comprehensive care.
