Eliminating Myths in Occlusion and Bruxism/ Information and Registration

Program Summary

In the current dental practice environment, dentists are faced with more stringent infection control guidelines imposed by licensing bodies as well as with patients who have a greater awareness of the risks of infectious disease transmission inherent to dental treatment. As a result, dentists must be able to apply complex policies and practices in order to promote a safe and professional treatment environment that not only complies with regulatory bodies and inspires patient confidence but is practical and financially sustainable.
This course will present the core concepts that are the keys to the development of any dental infection prevention and control program. The material, in the form of solutions to frequently-asked questions and concerns submitted by attendees prior to the course, will be presented in an interactive fashion that encourages group participation and problem solving.

Course Objectives

  • Objectively evaluate occlusal schemes and consider how force vectors may influence the health of the component parts of the cerivco-craniomandibular system.
  • Design an appliance for either night time or day time wear that is appropriate for their unique patient to alter parafunctional force vectors
  • Analyze occlusion after restorative procedures decreasing the likelihood of increasing patient’s awareness of his or her own occlusions.
  • Explain how bruxism can negatively affect joint function or cause orofacial pain and design appliances to control those forces
  • Distinguish between true joint dysfunction and pain, and extracapsular pain patterns
  • Explain to patients who are over concerned about their occlusion how to deal with their concerns
