Occlusion - What Else?

Description:
Occlusion-Confusion, most of the dentist feel this way. Occlusion is one of the most important part of dentistry but also the most controversy. The balance and the restore of function of the stomatognathic system is often an everyday challenge during most dental treatments. For these two distinct reasons the dentist needs to study and fully understand the normal function of the TMJoints, understand how the mandible rests against the cranium in a most favourable position, and of course how occlusion and any dental prosthetic restorations should be adjusted without jeopardising the stability of the stomatognathic system. Severe wear, missing teeth, periodontal disease, over the years change the maximum intercuspation the patient had when their teeth were intact. For example it is very common for patients with severe wear of their dentition to present with contacts of their anterior teeth, in a pseudo III class relationship. Finding the treatment position during full mouth prosthetic reconstruction or orthodontic treatment is a challenge. Dentist often choose to maintain the occlusal relationship the patient presents with. This clinical decision can lead to occlusal discrepancies upon delivery of final restorations, temporomandibular pain symptoms and discomfort of the patient. Therefore it is essential to register and maintain the orthopedic stability of the stomatognathic system during the treatment and determine the musculoskeletal stable position during the dental procedures. In this lecture some common clinical problems that the dentist often has to deal with in the everyday practice will be presented and the treatment sequence to maintain the stomatognathic system stability will be presented.

Facial Rejuvenation: Using Botox & Fillers as Support of the Oral Rehabilitation & Lips Enhancement
In general the population have been associating the use of Botox & Fillers just as an aesthetic treatment on the derm to avoid wrinkles of aging. It is very important to understand that the Onabotulinum toxin A will take effect in the muscular plane, not in the epiderm and neither in the derm, its actuation is to block the release of a neurotransmitter necessary for muscles contraction. The result will be the inhibition of undesirable movements and reduction of strength and potency on the muscles, what can help on the treatment of parafunctional disorders and also improve the conditions for immediate loading in implant dentistry. The Dental losses, alveolar ridge atrophies and loss of vertical dimension contribute significantly to the aging process of the face and the perioral region, so it is essential for dentists to have the knowledge of the use of fillers in association with oral rehabilitation, improving the aesthetics and self-esteem of their patients.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.
