OcclusionThe term occlusion is one that has been routinely associated with confusion, ambiguity and varying philosophies. In fact, the topic of occlusion is often only associated with "checking the bite" after doing a restoration. Having an understanding of the general concepts of occlusion within a practice can create a foundation that brings more predictable, long-lasting dentistry while encouraging patients to make health-centered decisions.

Our new staff training course, Occlusion for the Dental Team: What is it and Why Do We Care?, explains the connection between occlusion and predictable dentistry using a comprehensive approach, including systematic treatment planning.

After viewing this course, your team will learn how to:

  • Identify the three components of a comprehensive approach to patient care

  • Understand ideal vs. individualized

  • Intentionally connect occlusion with the rest of the exam

  • Identify physiologic occlusion

  • Understand the threshold of adaptability

  • Appreciate "Facially Generated Treatment Planning" to facilitate predictable dentistry
