Comprehensive Occlusion, Clinical records and Bite Splints

This is a unique and comprehensive course designed to give delegates a thorough and clinically relevant understanding of occlusion. Rather than focus on specific philosophies and concepts, it will start off with the basic nuts and bolts such as occlusal contacts and tooth morphology and build up to more complex aspects such as mandibular movement and occlusal adjustment.

Practical and exercises will make use of giant tooth models and drawings of Mr Janos Mako (Master technician Hungary).

In addition there will be a detailed discussion to bite splints. Delegates will learn the difference between various types and which one to use when. Each delegate will have the opportunity to fit and adjust a full upper bite splint
