246: Managing the Restorative/Periodontal Interface and Advanced Functional Occlusion

Combined 173 and 303 – Predictable Periodontal Tissue Management
Predictable Periodontal Tissue Management

Predictable management of soft and hard tissues is a critical component of successful restorative dentistry. Many times we are faced with unanticipated clinical challenges: black triangles between restored teeth, chronically inflamed tissues over a crown or sudden gingival recession after a crown preparation.

In Restorative/Periodontal Interface, Dr. Kois presents the biology, behavior and interaction of bone, ligament, tooth structure and gingiva.  He provides scientifically based clinical guidelines which allow you to readily predict and manipulate the gingival margin position.

Implementing the principles in this course will greatly enhance your efficiency and accuracy when faced with important tissue management challenges.  You will gain confidence in both cosmetic and restorative outcomes.  Acclaimed Clinical Instructor, Dr. Betsy Bakeman, will present a hands-on surgical instrumentation segment during this course.

Biologic Principles in Advanced Functional Occlusion

Understanding the biologic principles involved in developing a functional occlusion is vital to achieving predictable long-term restorative success. Traditionally, occlusion courses have centered on condylar position, muscle tension and gnathologic concepts such as canine guidance and mutual protection. The interpretations of these different schools of occlusion can be challenging to navigate.

Dr. Kois brings clarity to the similarities and the differences between the various occlusal philosophies while expanding on the concepts introduced in 153 Functional Occlusion, including TMJ disorders and their management. He presents evidence-based studies which redefine the options available for occlusal treatment.

The new paradigms presented in 303 Advanced Functional Occlusion will empower you to treat your patient’s restorative needs predictably and successfully and enable you to assess TMJ health and know the boundaries of your treatment options.
