About the course

Introduction to Functional Occlusion

Who is the course intended for?

Designed for dental practitioners aiming to elevate their clinical competence in occlusion assessment and management. Ideal for those dedicated to achieving optimal restorative outcomes and advancing overall oral health for their patients.

Proficient Occlusal Understanding

Master occlusal terminology and anatomy for precise communication, ensuring a foundational understanding essential for effective decision-making.

Comprehensive Assessment Skills

Learn a systematic approach to assess occlusion extra-orally and intra-orally, recognizing signs and symptoms early for improved patient outcomes.

Dynamic Treatment Planning

Navigate a structured roadmap for occlusal assessment, distinguishing between harmony and pathology, and handling complex occlusal patterns for successful treatment outcomes.

Practical Hands-On Experience

Engage in hands-on exercises, mastering tools and techniques like leaf gauges and facebows, ensuring practical competence in occlusion assessment and management.

Step 1: Simulation

The initial section of the course is dedicated to the art of simulation. Here, we will guide you through the process of creating a preview for your patient . This step is pivotal as it enables you to secure patient approval by showcasing the expected result through the wax up and by placing the mockup in the patient's mouth.

Step 2: Copy

The heart of the course lies in the "Copy" section. This phase delves into the intricate details of copying the diagnostic wax up in the injection moulding template. This process is executed using clear silicon, ensuring precision and attention to every nuance. The level of detail and thoroughness during this step is a hallmark of our course and sets the foundation for achieving exceptional results.

Step 3: Paste

The final section, "Paste," involves the execution phase within the patient's mouth. This step encompasses the duplication of the wax up, realised through the injection moulding technique you've learned. By seamlessly integrating the pasted version into the patient's oral cavity, you showcase the culmination of the simulation and copying phases. This execution is a testament to the perfected injection moulding technique and its potential to transform your practice.
