 “The Art of Complete Dentistry: Functional Occlusion and Predictable Aesthetics”– Season Pass #4

Speaker: Neeraj Khanna, B.Sc., D.D.S.

When: May 12, 2023 (8 am – 4pm) – 7 Hours Lecture

Location: Maggiano’s Restaurant @ Oak Brook, IL

Course Description:

An anonymous person once said that “It’s beauty that captures your attention; personality which captures your heart.” In complete dentistry, however, it is “functionality” that truly captures the heart of the practitioner. Undoubtedly, there is nothing more beautiful and essential than to have crafted teeth that appear natural and function perfectly. Ironically, however, this marriage of form and functionality is the most overlooked aspect of clinical dentistry. The fundamentals of occlusion are directly related to function. In other words, form does follow function. The
understanding of how the masticatory system functions in relation to the dentition allows the dentist to provide treatment that is not only predictable, but natural, and long lasting. One of the goals of a perfected occlusion is to have equal intensity contacts on all teeth while the joints (TMJ) are seated in centric relation. In addition, the anterior teeth also play an important role in establishing correct occlusion and the envelope of function. When anterior teeth are restored, the patient’s envelope of function must be correctly restored to achieve natural
movements of the mandible. Predictable dentistry involves creating acceptable, natural, and long lasting restorations. These restorations must exceed our patient’s expectation and more importantly, our own. The lecture will provide information with illustrations on how functional occlusion allows dentists to practice and deliver aesthetic results that are predictable. The very goal of using these principles is to have consistent predictable results, thereby making the practice of dentistry less stressful and more rewarding.

Attendees will learn:
1. Understand the principles of occlusion
2. Learn the connection between occlusion and predictable aesthetic dentistry
3. Learn how to practice predictable esthetic dentistry
4. Learn how to gather information relating to occlusion during an examinations
5. Understand the “Envelope of Function”, and how it relates to occlusion
6. Understand the four points of complete dentistry
7. Learn the proper techniques of taking photos
8. Learn which photos are important to take
9. Learn what to look for when reviewing photos
10. Learn and understand the need to have diagnostic records
11.Learn to use the photos and records to treatment plan in 2-D & 3-D
12. Learn effective communication with patients, specialist, and lab
