Dr. Lowe received his dental degree magna cum laude from Loyola University Chicago in 1982. Hecompleted a GP residency at a local VA Hospital. He taught Restorative and Rehabilitative Dentistry for many years at Loyola in Chicago and presently has a full time practice in Charlotte N.C. Dr. Lowe credits much of his understanding and success in dentistry to one of his mentors, Dr. Harold Shavell, whom many consider to be the “Michaelangelo of Dentistry,” who stated that “Occlusion is the Common Denominator of Dentistry.”
Reviewing fundamentals of direct restorative and crown and bridge dentistry will help all dentists to improve the quality and art of the dentistry they provide. The mind does not see what the mind hasn’t taught it to see. The road to success is easier when you know where you are going. This course will take everyone back to the future to discover that the importance of sound technique and morphologic precision is just as important in today’s dental practice as it was when Dr. Shavell practiced his craft.
Each participant will learn:
1. Proper morphology as the basis for good occlusion
2. Spheroiding – Occlusal adjustment without destroying anatomic form
3. How anterior guidance protects the occlusion from functional wear
4. Linguovision – The best way to visualize and understand occlusion
5. The ABC Pokorny construct and occlusal hierogliphics – What do all those little dots mean?
6. How a well constructed provisional restoration provides a blueprint for occlusal stability
7. Provisional restorations & tissue management – How to make a flawless master impression
8. Facebow transfer – Relation of the maxillary occlusal plane to the cranial base
9. Interocclusal records and centric relation – The basis for complete rehabilitation on a semi adjustable articulator
10. How to create a morphologically correct provisional restoration and provide a visual prescription to the dental technician for the
