The essential knowledge of occlusion

Avoiding Occlusally Related Failure in Restorative Dentistry

Drawing on over 40 years of clinical experience the presentation will marry some basic occlusal theory and its application in the provision of restorations. The presentation is very clinically photographically driven and does not deal with theory such as the anatomy of the TMJ’s, articulator’s and facebows. The content of the lecture is to show clinical failures and explain why they have occurred in the provision of everyday dentistry.

  • To give an understanding of the signs and symptoms of potential occlusally related problems during a clinical examination
  • To outline the limitations of dental articulators
  • With the use of clinical photographs, to broaden the understanding of the five basic theoretical and clinical principles of occlusion
  • When to treat conformatively and when to re-organise the occlusion prior to treatment
  • To show some of the clinical ramifications following a loss of occlusal harmony
  • To outline how to prevent introducing changes to the occlusal scheme when providing definitive restorations
  • To reinforce some of the basic occlusal principles involved during the provision of treatment – endodontics ,orthodontics as well as the provision of soft night plates
  • The use of e.max overlays to avoid the provision of posts in root treated teeth  as well as the provision of soft night plates
  • To clarify any misconceptions
  • Material choices to avoid restorative failures
  • Some aspects of bridge design to avoid occlusally related failure
Learning outcomes:
  • To clarify any miconceptions
  • To have a broader understanding of the fundamentals of occlusion, their importance in occlusal diagnosis and clinical management of a patient.
  • To have the knowledge to adopt a structured approach to the delivery of restorative treatment
  • To avoid occlusally related failures in the provision of restorative treatment
