Chicago AGD: The Art of Complete Dentistry: Functional Occlusion & Predictable Aesthetics

On Friday, May 12th, 2023, in conjunction with the Illinois State Dental Society at Maggiano’s restaurant in Oakbrook, IL, the Chicago component of the Academy of General Dentistry hosted Dr. Neeraj Khanna. Dr. Khanna demonstrated his methods for treatment planning a variety of complex cases with severe wear. A method was presented that simplified the complexity by getting comprehensive records at the outset so that the case could be built with a solid idea of what esthetic outcome was desired from both the patient’s perspective and the clinicians. Function then followed. Orthodontics and appropriate concern for TMJ stability and occlusion were key considerations. Temporization was utilized to determine if the prescribed plan was working. At various stages the records were once again obtained to ensure the best results. The lecture and pictures of the various stages in treatment showed a stepwise way to achieve exceptional results. Dr. Khanna communicated his methods and the reasoning behind them impeccably. Our doctors had questions throughout the day, and we all benefitted from his vast knowledge and experience.
