When you were in dental school, you learned a lot about occlusion, but you probably didn't have a lot of time to actually digest it, or get a full grasp of how you would implement it into your dentistry in general.

Most dentists seek out a place to learn about occlusion so they can feel comfortable and confident when treating their patients.

Although there are occlusal schemes that you can always refer back to that you are comfortable with, the key to gaining confidence is being able to decide which approach is best that specific patient.

The benefits of transitioning from a pathologic occlusion to a physiologic occlusion are widely accepted. Our new course, Equilibration: Visualize the End Before You Begin, reviews the specific components or characteristics of a physiologic occlusion and the actual planning to make the process more predictable and less confusing.

After viewing these lessons on equilibration, you will have a better understanding of:

  • Physiological occlusion

  • Systematic approaches to trial equilibration that transfer a predictable experience in the mouth
