Course contents

„You only see what you know!“


A. Static occlusion as the key to success

  • Dimensions of static occlusion
    PDL sensors – HIKP constancy – Functional joint space
    We have to move in these dimensions!
    Grinding in was yesterday!

    Consequences of “loop-in therapy” for the system, case presentations
    Endo, paro → too high / bruxism, CMD → too low
    Intraoral situation vs. model analysis
    From bite registration to model analysis – the precision chain

B. The occlusometry of static occlusion

In practice, what do I have to do now?

Case presentations with hands on by the course participants

  1. „I can’t cope with my dentures.”
  2.  Model screening
    → Is there a risk of developing CMD?
    → Why is the patient bruxing?
  3.  Splint therapy
    → The splint does not work
    → One side is too high
    → The splint was great, but now the symptoms are returning
    → Splint check in the practice
  4. Occlusion check after orthodontics

In the laboratory

  1. Single-tooth replacement → How far must/may I etch the models?
  2. Erasing (lowering) models was yesterday
  3. Major restorations → The step-by-step procedure → From the Memobite plate to occlusometry
  4. The splint check after completion
    Splint o.k. – grinding in possible, or new?
  5. Grinding in with the dial gauge
