Occlusion Concepts Introduction Into Every Day Practice
Hands-on course
25-26 Oct 2018 CAPP Training Institute | Dubai | UAE Area of interest: General Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentistry

Course Outline Day 1

The morning session will consist of a seminar on occlusion. The afternoon session will be a hands on practical. This will cover face bows and jaw registration.

Course Aims

  • Discuss the events precipitating the study of occlusion
  • Appreciate the limitations of a balanced occlusion
  • Understand the distinctions between Gnathology and Pankey Mann Scheiler theories
  • Introduce the concepts of RCP, ICP and RAP
  • Define how the dentition distributes lateral and vertical loading
  • Describe the concepts of anterior and posterior guidance
  • Understand the classification of levers and how this applies to occlusion
  • Consolidate the theory and implications of bruxism
  • Classify the options for lateral and protrusive guidance
  • Consider the consequences of non-working side interferences
  • Establish the three components of posterior stability

Course Objectives

By the time the delegate has completed this course he/she will:

  • Manipulate the mandible to arc around its terminal hinge axis
  • Confirm the tooth contact to register retruded contact position
  • Evaluate the vertical and horizontal components of the RCP –ICP slide
  • Demonstrate the examination for a mutually protected occlusion
  • Identify the consequences of class II leverage in the occlusal scheme
  • Record the guidance for a given occlusal scheme
  • Critique the guidance and prescribe any adjustment
  • Illustrate the protocol to identify non-working side interferences
  • Conceptualize the impact of removing non-working side interferences
  • Appreciate the treatment modalities for: working, balanced and non-working side guidance

Course Outline Day 2

The morning session will consist of an occlusal examination seminar and the afternoon session will consist of an occlusal examination practical.

Course Aims

  • Define the mechanisms of occlusal adaptation
  • Recognise that social and medical history may influence occlusal harmony
  • Appreciate how the anatomy of the glenoid fossa influence mandibular movement
  • Assign a classification and values to condylar movements
  • Discriminate the opportunities to prescribe a Dahl appliance

  • Establish the protocol for occlusal examination
  • Deliberate the consequences of an unstable ICP
  • Evaluate the Bennett angle and Bennett movement
  • Confirm the orbiting and rotating condyles during mandibular movements
  • Conceptualize condyle position for working and non-working side excursions
  • Describe the impact of bruxism with class II leverage
  • Evaluate all information to prescribe a reorganized or conformative treatment plan
