Simplifying Complex Reconstructions Part I:
Segmenting & Simplifying Occlusion For The GP

September 27th, 2024 

Type:  Lecture | Demos

Credits: 8 CE


Every practice has patients that need comprehensive restorative, but are not treated due to money or the dentists lack of knowledge. This program shows how to do both. Restoring complex reconstructions and occlusal management can be easily managed by any dentist. It’s easier than you think and this course will show you how. For the last 30 years, dental schools have not done an adequate job of teaching occlusal principals, articulation, and their significance as it relates to restorative dentistry. As a result, most dentists today do not feel comfortable treating complex restorative cases and if they do, often do not appropriately use the proper instrumentation and philosophies. This course is designed to introduce how to sequence complex cases to meet any need. It will also be a review of occlusal philosophies, occlusal principles, function, articulation, and their application to today’s restorative needs. It is the first day of the Advanced Fixed Mentorship.
