An optimal occlusion is a key component in achieving and maintaining a healthy and functioning stomatognathic system. Facial and oral muscle harmony, temporomandibular health, and optimal esthetics are dependent upon a stable and functional occlusion.
Occlusal rehabilitation does not necessarily require full mouth crowns as once thought. Our conservative approach to creating an optimal occlusion allows for a healthier long-term alternative treatment option for patients. Preserving natural enamel is of utmost importance and the result is a natural, functional, comfortable and esthetic outcome.
This three-day course is a combination of on-line and hands on learning.
