Event Description

Presented by: Charles Hoopingarner, DDS and Robert Spears, PhD, MS

This course will discuss differential diagnosis and treatment protocols related to various examination findings and conditions. Since there are various TMD treatment methods and no universal agreement of standard protocol, it is important to have knowledge of anatomic and physiological foundations, as well as treatment needs and protocols. This course will compare and contrast the various generally accepted occlusal philosophies by presenting a chronological journey of our understandings of Occulusion and Oromasticatory. We will also discuss facial and dental esthetics, smile design, and anterior tooth placement as an occlusal concept. The presenters will demonstrate useful techniques for tooth configuration in individual restorations, anterior guidance, quadrant dentistry, single arch, and full mouth reconstruction. This course will allow the practitioner to deliver a higher quality, more predictable service to the patient.
