It is often said that the equilibration of the human dentition is a misunderstood and under utilized procedure. Why are most practitioners reluctant to perform an equilibration? There are a number of reasons, but the primary reason is that there is no consensus as to how the design of teeth and the way they touch each other can improve the efficiency and physiology of the stomatognathic system and reduce problems of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
This interactive two-day workshop begins with a detailed analysis of the subject of occlusion, explaining the many reasons for the confusion. This presentation, based on bio-engineering, will explain the exact relationship between occlusion and problems of the TMJ and how dental prostheses should be designed to ensure maximum comfort, health, and efficiency.
The workshop is limited to five participants. Each will have his or her teeth equilibrated, if deemed necessary, and a mouth guard delivered. This workshop is unique in that it is open to private patients with occlusal and TMJ problems where they will be evaluated, critiqued, and treated.
Workshops are given the first weekend of each month.
