Course Description :
The move from single tooth dentistry to comprehensive care requires a great understanding of risk factors and the ability to manage them effectively. The comprehensive examination - the initial patient engagement-focuses the clinician and patient on the variables most likely to ensure a predictable and excellent outcome. The comprehensive examination will be carefully examined to help you understand it’s most diagnostically useful elements, including an insightful look at the medical and dental history, how to better account for patient’s agendas and expectations, intelligent use of radiographic and photographic documentation, and periodontal, biomechanical, functional and dentofacial presentations. These keys to decision-making set the stage for both the immediate issues and a more long-term focus on predictable treatment outcomes.
Understanding and managing functional occlusion is essential to the long-term stability of restorative dentistry. Successful occlusal management must incorporate a range of important considerations, from force management to laboratory and articulator management, to patient psychology, neurology and pharmacology. With the myriad of opinions and approaches that exist within the dental profession, managing occlusion can be a daunting responsibility.
