Airway-Esthetics-Bruxism-TMD in the Restorative Practice
February 3 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
Today’s restorative dentist must be a diagnostician not only of the masticatory system but also of the systems that impact it. As our knowledge of systemic involvements broadens, the connection between airway, breathing, bruxism, and reflux is becoming clearer. Whether or not the dentist chooses to be involved in the treatment of airway and breathing problems, parafunctional activities, reflux issues, or temporomandibular disorders, they must recognize the effect of these on the restorative dentistry that is recommended and completed. This program will assist the clinician in a deeper understanding of the involvement of the problems noted above and the part that occlusion (and occluding) might play in it as well as appropriate solutions for a predictable and long-lasting restorative result.
