Every time dentists alter the chewing surface of a tooth we impact the entire stomatognathic system. Some patients have very low functional risk and a high ability to adapt to the changes we make, while other patients present with complex functional and restorative challenges or a low threshold to adapt to change. Patients present with multiple complexities such as extreme wear, deep bite class two occlusion and damaged joints. In these situations moving forward is about assessing the risks and managing them as part of our overall treatment plan. In this program we will explore these and other occlusal challenges and look at how we can make our dentistry more predictable and help our patients stay healthy and comfortable.
