A New Perspective on Occlusion and TMD

We are fortunate we can offer predictable treatment outcomes for many of the occlusal and TM joint problems that are so common for many of our patients. The first step in predictable treatment outcomes is specifically diagnosing the condition of the anatomy we are treating. By expanding our vision from the teeth to include the TM joints, we finally have answers why some patients have malocclusions, why some patients have pain and why some patients have both. As both a specialist and a restorative dentist, the key to success in many cases is managing the forces generated both at the tooth level and at the TM joint level.  

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Learn new perspectives on occlusion and TMD that will add to proven concepts and help you solve many of the problems that have confused dentists for years. 
  • Review practical concepts of practice management, third party reimbursement, and case acceptance that will lead to an increased ability to implement the concepts discussed.
  • Help patients have the ability to make better decisions about different treatment options resulting in an increased level of predictability.
